Ole Miss Coach Quits After School Checks Phone Records

  • Ole Miss defended head coach Hugh Freeze in its response to the NCAA. Now it has fired him

"This is a sad day for the University of Mississippi". ". We can not accept the conduct in his personal life that we have discovered".

Without knowing what will happen to the NCAA case, it is safe to assume the Rebels are going to spend some time in the basement. Morrison certainly didn't hold back in his statement, calling out Freeze's character and the school's treatment of Nutt. Freeze has said it was a misdial. When he interviewed for the job, he even said that "Jesus Christ will be at the center of it all" and "if that's not what you want, I'm not your guy", according to former linebackers coach Tom Allen. "There's nothing to it".

UM Chancellor Jeff Vitter and AD Ross Bjork discussing Freeze's resignation.

"We initially attributed this call to a misdialed number".

Of all the things for Ole Miss to get rid of their coach over contacting a escort service seems pretty minor. They dug into the rest of his phone records, and they found "a pattern of conduct that is not consistent with our expectations as the leader of our football program", Bjork said. "As of (Wednesday), there appeared to be a concerning pattern". The investigation followed a report by USA Today that he had used the phone to call a number affiliated with an escort service.

Germany revising travel advice for Turkey
Germany's DIHK chambers of commerce said that in the current environment investing in Turkey was hard to imagine. Accusing Turkey of " departing the basis of European values ", the top diplomat also vowed economic retaliation.

The ouster comes with no buyout and no settlement. "He has taken responsibility and is accountable for his actions". "The team is the focus right now", Bjork said Thursday night.

"I can only go on the facts". This is just a prime example of what we have tried to show in our complaint. What did we discover? No one's flawless. No one in this room is ideal.

Freeze took over after Houston Nutt was sacked during a miserable 2011 season that ended with a 2-10 record. On the night of the NFL Draft in 2016, Tunsil admitted that he received money while at Ole Miss after his social media accounts were hacked. "There is no story to that one", Freeze told Yahoo. Entering this season, Luke, a MS native who was a student assistant coach at Ole Miss in 1999 and is married to a woman from Oxford, was one of only two coaches remaining from Freeze's initial staff in 2012. That's just how it works in major college football - especially in the SEC.

Freeze's phone records might have never been researched if Nutt hadn't filed a lawsuit against the university earlier this month.

The Rebels had a quick rise under Freeze, recruiting at a high level and reaching an apex with a Sugar Bowl victory over Oklahoma State following the 2015 season. The NCAA now accuses the Rebels of 21 rules violations by current or former members of their football coaching staff.

It's the timing that came as a shock to many, only days after Freeze went before hundreds of reporters at SEC Media Days and offered an award-worthy filibuster.

Freeze inherited a 2-10 team from Nutt, but after that brief peak, Ole Miss football could be in worse shape than when he took over.

Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze's five years with the team ended abruptly Thursday after he faced a choice: Resign, or be fired for "moral turpitude".

Freeze met with his staff at 6 p.m. and with players at 6:30, Bjork said. "We start practice in less than two weeks, but there will be a lot of time to conduct a search for a permanent head coach".

Kirk Cousins to become first QB to repeat as franchise tag player
The Redskins have viewed Cousins as being good, but not great, and their offers reflected that sentiment. The team's attempts to make Cousins out to be the bad guy in all this have worked to a degree.
