Internet Hilariously Reacts to Hugh Freeze Resignation, Escort Phone Calls (TWEETS)

Ole Miss Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter said: 'This is a sad day for the University of MS'.

Admittedly, he's not exactly a name that pops to mind, so we chose to do some research to tell you what you need to know about the Rebels' new interim coach.

In a joint press conference, Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter and Athletic Director Ross Bjork addressed Freeze's departure. So to make the transition as seamless as possible, they went with the coach who arguably knows Ole Miss better than anyone: Luke.

This isn't even counting former quarterback Chad Kelly being video taped charging onto a high school football field looking for a fight after his brother received a late hit.

"I ask everyone in the Ole Miss family to pull together as we navigate this transition, our student athletes, coaches and staff will need our unwavering support in the coming months and throughout this season". "It was troubling", Bjork said. He left for an administrative position in the Ole Miss football program, where Oher had matriculated.

Hugh Freeze has forced the Ole Miss football program to undergo a major change just weeks before the start of the 2017 season. Before taking Ole Miss off the board, the team was listed at 66/1 to win the SEC and tagged with a season Over/Under win total at 5.5. Bjork will look to move forward with Luke while contemplating Freeze's replacement. The only coach I could potentially see them hiring is Les Miles, but I can't imagine Les will take the job for just one year. "The team is the focus right now", Bjork said Thursday night. "Moving forward, I think we have to respect how he resigned, and we have to respect his privacy".

Simpson was found not guilty in the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson , and her friend Ronald Goldman . Simpson has been a widely controversial figure through the years. "He is a good man".

"I don't think Houston Nutt needs vindication". We had to get a plan in place. ". There will be a lot of time to search for a permanent head coach".

Nutt is alleging Ole Miss violated its severance agreement because university officials, Freeze and Bjork conspired to smear him in early 2016 with off-the-record conversations with reporters that put the blame for the violations on Nutt's tenure.

In a morbid sort of way that helped them deal with what they heard Thursday, Bjork said.

The school challenged several of the new allegations, including one involving a booster providing a $10,000 cash payment to a recruit, saying that there isn't "sufficient credible and persuasive factual support" for the NCAA's Committee on Infractions to find a violation.

Thursday night, Freeze resigned as head coach of the Rebels after being caught calling an escort from his work phone. If he handles it well and keeps the locker room intact, Ole Miss has a chance to weather the storm.

The Rebels' first game is September 2 at home against South Alabama. What's more, he has plenty of weapons at receiver. If Eric Swinney can provide some balance at running back, this offense will be capable of averaging 30 or more points per game. He was making more than $5 million a year, and he was under contract through 2019.
