Lane Kiffin is free to choose his Final Four rooting interest since Ole Miss did not make the NCAA Tournament, and he is very much rooting for one team in particular.

Kiffin celebrated Florida Atlantic’s Final Four run on Saturday by posting a celebratory picture on social media of the school’s logo, making it clear who he is rooting for going forward.

Kiffin spent three seasons coaching Florida Atlantic and re-established himself there as a head coach following his stint as Alabama’s offensive coordinator. He went 26-13 with the Owls and parlayed it into his current job at Ole Miss. He generally remains a popular figure there and parted on good terms. He even offered some advice to the school’s new coach.

Florida Atlantic’s basketball team reached the Final Four on Saturday with a win over Kansas State, and are carrying a chip on their shoulder the rest of the way.

Ole Miss fans! It’s time to jump aboard the Lane Train! This Lane Train shirt is a perfect gift for you or a friend – you can buy it here.
