Former New York Giants head coach Joe Judge is set to join Lane Kiffin at Ole Miss.

Ole Miss Football is making a significant stride in bolstering its team with experienced staff. The latest addition is none other than former NFL head coach Joe Judge, a move that underscores the team's commitment to success, as first reported by Ole Miss Spirit.

Judge comes to Oxford to join Lane Kiffin's talented staff after spending 2023 as the assistant head coach at the New England Patriots. He's another addition who brings a wealth of NFL experience to the Rebels, having spent 12 seasons with the Patriots and New York Giants.

His role at Ole Miss has not been released as of April 3, but the former Mississippi tate alumni will be looking to help Kiffin and the team shoot for the college football playoffs and more.

Another NFL Experienced Staff Member for Ole Miss and Lane Kiffin

This week, Judge is the second appointment that brings NFL experience to the Rebels staff. On April 2, Ole Miss hired NFL veteran Mike Williams as their Senior Director of Player Personnel. Williams had over ten years of experience in the NFL, the same as Judge.

Judge spent 12 seasons working under former New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick in two stints. He had various roles in the team, including his latest 2023 role as assistant head coach.

He also had his first opportunity as an NFL head coach, spending two seasons with the New York Giants from 2020-2021. Unfortunately, it didn't go well for Judge, who was fired with a record of just 10-23.
