The NCAA said Ole Miss “lacked institutional control and fostered an unconstrained culture of booster involvement in football recruiting, according to a Division I Committee on Infractions panel. Six football staff members and 12 boosters were involved in the violations, which included the provision of approximately $37,000 to prospects through cash payments, the use of automobiles, lodging, transportation, meals and apparel. Two staff members also helped arrange fraudulent standardized test scores for three prospects.”

The school got a bowl ban for the 2018 season after self-imposing a bowl ban for 2017 and also had fewer scholarships to use over the last two seasons. Freeze didn’t escape unscathed either. He was given a two-game suspension effective in 2018 if he was a head coach anywhere in college football.

Mississippi ’s football coach , Hugh Freeze , resigned Thursday after university officials found a “pattern of personal misconduct” that started with the university ’s investigation into a call to an escort service.

Revisiting Freeze’s departure from Ole Miss

The revelation of the call to the escort service came as part of a lawsuit against the school. Former Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt was suing the school for breach of contract and said that Freeze had been badmouthing Nutt.

Nutt’s lawyer got Freeze’s phone records and found a phone call from Freeze’s phone that went to a number for a Florida escort service. After Ole Miss was notified of the call, the school said it found a “pattern of conduct” and Freeze resigned in July of 2017.

Freeze told Yahoo Sports that he wasn’t trying to hide anything with his phone records and there was “no story” to that call.

“If I was trying to hide something, I would have,” Freeze told Yahoo over a year ago. “That call shows up nowhere else on my records. There is no story to that one.”

Freeze was 39-25 at Ole Miss

Freeze had success on the field at Ole Miss and recruited well at the school. Fans of other SEC teams will point to that NCAA investigation as proof that the school wasn’t doing everything above board to get top recruits to come to the Rebels.

Ole Miss lets go defensive coordinator after season finale Mississippi has announced that defensive coordinator Wesley McGriff will not return to the coaching staff next year, one day after the Rebels finished the season on five-game losing streak. McGriff has led the Ole Miss defense the past two seasons. Ole Miss gave up about 36 points and 483 yards per game this year, which were two of the many defensive statistics that put the Rebels at or near the bottom of the Southeastern Conference. Ole Miss (5-7, 1-7 SEC) lost 35-3 to No. 22 Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl on Thursday.

Speaking at Liberty University on Wednesday in his first public appearance since resigning in July, former Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze expressed remorse for his actions.

His best season with the school came in 2015 as Ole Miss went 10-3 and won the Sugar Bowl. That was just Ole Miss’ second 10-win season since 1971. Months later, text messages from former Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil were published that showed Tunsil asking Ole Miss staff for money to pay rent and bills.

Freeze came to Ole Miss after a season as Arkansas State’s head coach. He’s regarded as a bright offensive mind and, as he’s shown throughout his six-year head coaching career, can win games. That’s the important part here. If Freeze hadn’t been successful on the field at Ole Miss he’s probably not set to be Liberty’s new head coach. But his teams were good, just like Baylor’s football teams were under McCaw’s watch. Winning covers up a lot of misdeeds, even for a school that prevents .
