OXFORD, Miss. — Ole Miss offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby has agreed to a new two-year contract.
The university announced the deal on Tuesday, three days after a similar announcement for Rebels coach Lane Kiffin. Ole Miss didn’t release details of either deal.
Lebby was a semifinalist for the Broyles Award, which honors the nation’s best assistant coach and went to Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian.
Ole Miss broke the SEC record for total offense in conference games, averaging 562.4 yards per game. The Rebels averaged 40.7 points a game, 344.8 passing yards and 217.7 rushing yards.
Rebels quarterback Matt Corral led the nation in total offense with an average of 384.3 yards per game.
“Coach Lebby did an incredible job managing our offense and preparing Matt every game,” Kiffin said. “Coach Lebby brings the innovative mentality we want in our program, and we look forward to building on the historic success of this season’s offense.”
