Kiffin’s older brother, Lane, is Ole Miss’ head coach.

The younger Kiffin joined the Browns on head coach Kevin Stefanski’s first staff in 2020 after he served as a pass-rushing specialist for the 49ers from 2018-2019. Defensive end Myles Garrett set a single-season franchise record with 16.0 sacks in 2021.

Browns assistant defensive line coach Jeremy Garrett is also reportedly leaving the franchise to become the defensive line coach at Liberty.
