Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin is facing scrutiny for his handling of a player penalty this Saturday morning.
The Rebels are hosting the No. 7 Wildcats of Kentucky at Vaught Hemingway Stadium today.
On the opening drive, Ole Miss tight end Michael Trigg committed a costly false start penalty on fourth and one close to midfield. Kiffin had no other choice than to punt the ball away.
Kiffin erupted at Trigg on the sideline and even gave him a shove. The video is now circulating on social media.
"About as animated as you’ll see Lane Kiffin. Gives Michael Trigg a shove after his false start spoiled Ole Miss’ 4th down attempt," said Connor O'Gara.
Fans aren't pleased with Lane Kiffin's over-the-top decision.
"Lane Kiffin just shoved his own player. Dude is an absolute clown. The shoved player should get a chance to shove him back. Maybe, just maybe, we shouldn't glorify sports coaches and let them get away with garbage like that," a fan said on Twitter.
Former Washington Huskies head coach Jimmy Lake was suspended and eventually fired for shoving and hitting one of his players during a game. This situation isn't as extreme.
However, it will be interesting if Ole Miss has anything to say about Kiffin's actions.
