I know for a fact


that Ole Miss fan reaction on the possible Lane Kiffin hire helped get it done. The AD was overwhelmed with emails, etc in favor of the potential hire. Kiffin had reached out to Ole Miss once the job became available but there was some push back from certain boosters. The fan reaction helped get past this.

As far as CSU, the hire is a head scratcher....the guy has never coached west of the Mississippi......will all depend on his staff. He had better hire a staff that has connections in the region for recruiting purposes.
