Hugh Freeze May Be Close To Becoming Ole Miss Head Coach

Ole Miss reportedly tried the hard sell on Southern Mississippi head coach Larry Fedora, but may be turning its attention to Hugh Freeze. According to a report on Saturday night, Freeze is expected to meet with Ole Miss officials on Sunday, and will receive an offer to be the Rebels next head coach at that time. Freeze is expected to accept, though nothing is final yet.

The report comes from Rebel Grove and includes information about Ole Miss' reported pursuit of Fedora.

Sources told RebelGrove.com Saturday Southern Miss coach Larry Fedora rejected an offer from Ole Miss. A source said late Saturday Ole Miss was expected to make one final pitch to Fedora before turning its full attention to Freeze.

This has nothing to do with the Ole Miss opening, but it's kind of amazing. Hugh Freeze could have been a women's basketball coach.
