Kiffin pointed out that Sokoloff's report caused a distraction in the locker room. He needed to hold a meeting with his players just to let them know that he hasn't accepted another job.

"I think when this was falsely reported by Jon, who’s now famous - congratulations - that you can write whatever you want," Kiffin said.

"And I would do it too - I think - because you’re never held accountable and you get to become famous and maybe he’ll be right.

Jon did it, so I had to have a team meeting to say his article was wrong, which you love these unnamed sources. But yes, I had to deal, had to have a team meeting because of that.

When there’s other stuff and chat rooms and all that stuff, but when a reporter writes it, it changes the game on that." As for Kiffin's future, he claims he'll stay with the Rebels.

"Yes, I do," Kiffin replied when asked if he expects to return to Ole Miss next season. Kiffin's future at Ole Miss will remain a popular topic in the college football world for at least the next few weeks.
