With national signing day approaching, we are fully immersed in college football's silly season. As coaching staffs across the country scramble to assemble the best recruiting classes they can, things are bound to get a little crazy. On Sunday, a Twitter back-and-forth between Mississippi State assistant Tim Brewster and Ole Miss assistant Chris Kiffin happened. That's an odd sentence to type, but here we are.
Brewster got things started by suggesting that Kiffin was taking a job with the Dallas Cowboys, who recently hired his father, Monte.
"@griffinannie: @timbrewster Coach Brew do all the concerned recruits know Chris Kiffin is headed to Dallas?"Yes!! #HailState— Tim Brewster (@TimBrewster) January 21, 2013
This has obvious recruiting implications, what with these two schools battling over some of the same prospects. Kiffin was quick to quash the rumor that he was moving to the Cowboys, and he managed to get a shot in at Mississippi State in the process.
@timbrewster @griffinannie I'm not going to Dallas! I'm going to stay here and keep winning the Egg Bowl with my Rebels! #hottytoddy— Chris Kiffin (@Chris_Kiffin) January 21, 2013
The Rebels beat Mississippi State this season, 41-24. It was Kiffin's first year at Ole Miss, where he is the defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator.
The Twitter exchange stopped there, unfortunately, but Brewster has since taken the time to give one lucky fan a RT.
