Ole Miss is having a hard time holding on to coaches these days.
For the second time this month, the Rebels have lost an assistant coach to another team.
Each time, the coach took the same position he held at Ole Miss at another institution. Tray Scott, who was expected to coach the Ole Miss defensive line this season, has left to coach the defensive line at Georgia instead.
So what is going on here, exactly? Ole Miss nation hopes it isn’t an indication that new head coach, Hugh Freeze, is a mess of a head coach waiting to happen. Earlier this month Matt Lubick left his position as offensive coordinator at Ole Miss for the same job a few states over at Baylor. Lubick had only taken the position a few weeks prior and apparently didn’t like what he saw around the practice facility. As soon as another offer was tendered, he was out the door.
For Scott, he joins Kirby Smart and his staff at a rival SEC school. Smart fired his former defensive line coach Tracy Rocker just one day prior to Scott’s hiring. Freeze is going to have some egg on his face now that he has lost two coaches in such a short span of time. If Freeze is able to field a winning Rebels team in spite of all the coaching turnover, he’ll make these coaches eat their shorts. But if not, he might be out the door as quickly as he was brought through it.
