Hugh Freeze Resigns After Being Caught Calling Escort From Work Phone

Hugh Freeze has forced the Ole Miss football program to undergo a major change just weeks before the start of the 2017 season.
Thursday night, Freeze resigned as head coach of the Rebels after being caught calling an escort from his work phone.
Ole Miss officials said they discovered a “pattern of personal misconduct inconsistent to the standards we expect from the leader of our football team,” according to Chancellor Jeff Vitter, so Freeze was terminated.
“We did a quick assessment and determined this was the only time that that particular number was ever called from coach Freeze’s phone since he started working here at Ole Miss,” athletic director Ross Bjork said, via the Clarion-Ledger. “Because the call lasted less than one minute … we initially attributed this call to a (accidental dial of the) number.
“In our analysis, we discovered a pattern of conduct that is not consistent with our expectations as the leader of our football program. As of yesterday, there appeared to be a concerning pattern.”
The development comes while Ole Miss continues to be in the middle of a serious NCAA investigation.
Ole Miss opens the season on Sept. 2 against South Alabama.
