Ole Miss Football Player Files $40M Lawsuit Against Lane Kiffin, School

Sep 15, 2023

Ole Miss football player DeSanto Rollins alleged head coach Lane Kiffin was “malicious, intentional, willful, wanton, grossly reckless, and indifferent” to Rollins’ mental health in a federal lawsuit that seeks $40 million in damages.

The lawsuit, filed on Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi, listed Kiffin and Ole Miss as defendants.

According to the complaint, Rollins, who remains listed on Ole Miss’ roster, alleges that Kiffin “ignored” signs indicating he was suffering from depression following an injury last season, further exacerbated by his grandmother’s recent death earlier this year.
