AP Source: Lane Kiffin, FAU agree on deal through 2027

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) A person familiar with the negotiations says Lane Kiffin and Florida Atlantic have agreed on a six-year extension through 2027.

The person says the additional length of the deal is the only new element already agreed upon. The person spoke to The Associated Press Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the contract has not been signed or made public by either side.

Kiffin had four seasons remaining on his existing deal, one that pays him $950,000 annually with a buyout that started at $2.5 million and decreases each year. Financial terms for the additional years are still being negotiated.

Kiffin and FAU took a 10-3 record into Tuesday night’s Boca Raton Bowl. FAU won nine games in the previous three seasons combined, and Kiffin led the Owls to a Conference USA championship.
