Ole Miss Coaching Staff Adds Dave Wommack, Others From Arkansas State

New Mississippi Rebels coach Hugh Freeze appears to be a man of continuity. He's bringing over four coaches from his Arkansas State staff, including defensive coordinator Dave Wommack. Additionally, "Maurice Harris will serve as tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator, Tom Allen will be the linebackers coach, and Chris Kiffin was named defensive line coach."

Wommack excelled for at least one year at Arkansas State, ranking No. 21 in total defense this year after a No. 105 showing in his first year. The Red Wolves ranked No. 41 before the great Freeze began. His last Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets defense ranked No. 53 -- with Derrick Morgan and Morgan Burnett aboard -- after ending up No. 25 the year before. So this could end up any number of ways.

Harris is likely the second most important hire. He has Oxford experience and has coached throughout SEC West country.
