Ole Miss HC Lane Kiffin on NIL: ‘We’re a Professional Sport’


Lane Kiffin has never been one to hold his opinions close to the vest, and the same can be said for his stances on name, image and likeness legislation in college athletics.

Kiffin recently spoke with Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated to discuss the state of college athletics surrounding NIL, recruiting and boosters, and his diagnosis was clear: “We’re a professional sport, and they are professional players.”

Dellenger’s story is formatted as a Q&A, but one point from Kiffin stood out among the rest–he sees NIL as widening not only the gap between the Power Five and Group of Five, but between Power Five schools themselves.
