OXFORD — A relatively quiet offseason on Lane Kiffin’s coaching staff is quiet no longer.
On Saturday afternoon, Ole Miss officially announced the hiring of Alabama football defensive coordinator Pete Golding to fill the same role in Oxford.
“We are excited to add a championship caliber coach like Pete Golding to our staff,” Kiffin said in a prepared statement. “At multiple stops in his career, Coach Golding has directed some of college football’s top defenses. He is also an outstanding recruiter and understands the level of talent necessary to compete at the highest level.”
