There's a Hiring "Freeze" at Ole Miss

As we all know, Hugh Freeze is out as the Ole Miss head football coach. The guy that is in is former assistant coach Matt Luke. Luke is an Ole Miss guy who will lead the Rebels on an interim basis, at least for now. There is nothing coming out of the Ole Miss administration concerning a search for a new 'permanent' head coach, nor will there be any time soon. The school faces possible severe sanctions from an ongoing NCAA investigation, which could include further bowl game restrictions and scholarship reductions. With all of this on the table at Ole Miss, the next man up at the university will automatically come in to a program with some real handicaps. The cupboard at Mississippi will not be bare, but it won't be stocked to the hilt either as recruiting will most certainly take a direct hit as a result of all the uncertainties surrounding the program. Stay tuned,there seems to be a lot more coming out of Oxford, Mississippi. Just not the hiring of a new 'permanent' head coach. The 'Freeze" out continues...
