The Football Player Suing Ole Miss and Lane Kiffin Releases Text Messages

Dec 9, 2023

The attorney for an Ole Miss football player who’s suing the school and its head football coach, Lane Kiffin, filed electronic communications to bolster the arguments against their case’s dismissal.

The messages, which were filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi on Friday, stem from communications after DeSanto Rollins had what he says was his first contentious meeting with Kiffin, on Feb. 27, and they appeared to show outreach by Rollins and his mother to staff over mental health concerns.

The supplemental filings included text messages between Rollins and Nick Savage, Ole Miss’s head football strength and conditioning coach.

“Hey coach, I decided it was best for me to take a mental break from everything and resume after I meet with my doctor and get everything in line,” Rollins texted Savage.
