Hugh Freeze Scandal: A Look at Ole Miss' Latest Debacle

Hugh Freeze Scandal: A Look at Ole Miss' Latest Debacle

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 former Ole 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.

December 5, 2011: After a 10-2 season at Arkansas State - his first as a head coach in college football - Freeze is hired by Ole Miss to replace Houston Nutt.

"This is a sad day, it's an unexpected day, especially for our players and coaches, and for our Ole Miss family", Bjork said.

Freeze, 47, had a 39-25 record in five seasons at MS, including a 5-7 record in 2016.

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.

Neither the attorney nor the corporate offices could be reached for comment. "They filed bankruptcy today, that's what they said". Other customers who ordered their dresses online have not received their items at all.

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.

An imagine circulated around Twitter Friday of Kiffin's recent follows on Twitter, and they're all associated with Ole Miss football. How did Ole Miss let this happen?

Luke will serve as Ole Miss' interim coach through the 2017 season.

Freeze's recruiting prowess helped the Rebels lure plenty of the Magnolia State's top prospects to Oxford, so his departure likely helps Mississippi State's recruiting efforts more than anyone else.
