On Thursday evening, head football coach - or rather, former head football coach - Freeze was the latest scandalous domino to fall from grace, resigning from his position effective immediately. This included beating Alabama, twice and bringing the Rebels to two New Year's Six bowls - a stunning end to a once-promising tenure. Freeze is gone, leaving a vacuum of leadership, and an NCAA investigation is looming. The phone call appears to have been unearthed as part of a lawsuit filed against the school by formerOle Miss head couch Houston Nutt. The school then looked into the rest of his phone records and found more problems. Fallout from the NCAA investigation was the only way most people would have envisioned Freeze leaving the University, but after phone records and an internal investigation uncovered calls to an escort service, the University couldn't stand behind its coach any longer. 'The conduct was just not something we could continue with as our head coach'. USA Today reports that Freeze made a phone call from a university phone given to him to a number tied to an escort service. "I've got no idea, to be honest", Freeze told Yahoo Sports when asked about the call.

Bjork said Freeze "admitted the conduct" and that the coach offered his resignation Thursday afternoon.
It's been a mess that keeps getting worse for Ole Miss, and while Freeze is out, there's still a lot to clean up in Oxford, a brief peak on the football field leading to seemingly endless problems off the field that will make on-field success even harder to come by going forward. "It's a huge win for our program and our fans", Freeze says afterward.
Ole Miss already is embroiled in a serious and lengthy NCAA investigation.
Freeze took over after Houston Nutt was sacked during a miserable 2011 season that ended with a 2-10 record. After Orgeron was sacked in 2007, Freeze became the head coach at Lambuth, a tiny NAIA school in western Tennessee.
