Just a couple days ago the Cleveland Browns lost a defensive assistant to the college ranks, now they are expected to lose another. Chris Kiffin is expected to take a job for Lane Kiffin at Ole Miss.

After losing his assistant to Liberty, Kiffin is following to the college coaching ranks. Kiffin served as the Browns’ defensive line coach and worked with quite the talent. With Cleveland having the likes of Jadeveon Clowney and Myles Garrett, it had to make Kiffin’s job a fun one, being able to work with those guys. Now heading to Ole Miss, Kiffin will have that kind of experience in his back pocket.
