Ole Miss Football Practice: Head Coach for a Day

Ole Miss football suited up for its first scrimmage of the fall training camp on Saturday, but with a twist: assistant head coach Derrick Nix took over as head coach for a day from Lane Kiffin, leading the Rebels for a 24-hour period up to and throughout the scrimmage.
For Kiffin, this was no stunt. This was a chance to give Nix – a now 16-year veteran of the Ole Miss coaching staff – an opportunity in the driver’s seat for real.
“What we did was, 24 hours ago he became the head coach for a 24-hour period,” Kiffin said. “And that was done not as a PR thing, that was really done to give him an opportunity to see what it’s like to learn.”
For more on Nix’s brief time as head coach and on today’s scrimmage, read our full report below.
Season tickets are still available for the 2023 season, as are the recently announced Party Packs, which features two, three and four-game mini plans.
For all ticket opportunities, contact the Ole Miss Athletics Ticket office at OleMissTix.comolemisstix@olemiss.edu or 888-732-TKTS. A limited number of season ticket opportunities remain throughout Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Excluding single seats, several sections have sold out, including the south end zone. If inventory is available, single-game tickets will go on sale beginning August 15.
