New coaching rivals Mike Leach and Lane Kiffin joined forces with other coaches and administrators from their respective universities to push Mississippi legislators to change the state’s controversial flag. Both sides of the Mississippi State/Ole Miss rivalry came together at the state capitol to show some serious support behind a very serious cause, but Leach still couldn’t pass up the opportunity to mess with Kiffin.
As Kiffin made his way toward Leach for a cordial handshake, Leach reached forward and popped Kiffin’s mask back against his face, right there on the capitol steps with everyone watching.
