Bjork Hidden Place Top of the Pops
Ole Miss head football coach Hugh Freeze said he couldn't discuss the case in detail because it's an ongoing legal matter. Ole Miss chancellor Jeffrey Vitter, in a Thursday night news conference announcing the move, said Freeze, 47, resigned after confirming to him and athletic director Ross Bjork "a pattern of personal misconduct inconsistent with the standards we expect from the leader of our football team. Bjork and Vitter met with Freeze on Wednesday night and again on Thursday, when Freeze offered his resignation. Bjork said Freeze would have been fired had he not resigned. Bjork separately told ESPN that once university officials dived deeper into Freeze's phone records on a university-provided cellphone, going back as far as shortly after he was hired in , they started finding more of a pattern with phone calls of the nature USA Today earlier reported after an open-records request. He also called Luke a great coach, a leader and "a rock. Phil Longo, the Ole Miss offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, tweeted a photo showing a group of players several hours after Freeze's departure was announced. Bjork wouldn't say how many phone calls were made to numbers similar to the one made to the female escort service, or how far back the phone calls went. He also said that not all of them were connected to different escort services but that they were similar in nature. They've done a great job to this point, and now they've had a terrible setback. USA Today reported Thursday that Freeze made a one-minute call from a university-issued phone to a number associated with a female escort service. The number was found during preparation related to former Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt's civil lawsuit against Ole Miss and Freeze, which was filed in federal court last week. Bjork said six days of Freeze's phone records from early January were turned over to Nutt's attorney, and Freeze was allowed to redact personal phone calls before the records were released. Freeze failed to redact the area code number in question, according to Bjork. ESPN asked Freeze about the alleged phone call last week, and he denied purposely calling an escort service. According to emails obtained by USA Today, Nutt's attorney, Thomas Mars, sent an email to Ole Miss general counsel Lee Tyner, which referenced a "phone call Coach Freeze made that would be highly embarrassing for all of you and extremely difficult to explain. The report said the call was made on Jan. The USA Today report said the number is associated with websites that advertise a female escort business based in Tampa, Florida. Hugh Freeze, 47, had a record in six seasons with the Rebels, including a mark against SEC foes. After going in , Ole Miss slipped to this past season. In February, the school self-imposed a one-year bowl ban for the season after it received a new NCAA notice of allegations that accused the school of lack of institutional control and Freeze of failure to monitor his coaching staff. The notice of allegations included eight new alleged rules violations and the lack of institutional control charge. The NCAA has now accused the Rebels of 21 rules violations by current or former members of their football coaching staff. Freeze had a record in six seasons with the Rebels, including a mark against SEC foes. Among other charges, the NCAA accused the Rebels of providing improper benefits, including cash payments and merchandise, to prospects, as well as lodging and meals to recruits and their families. Freeze probably faced a multigame suspension this coming season if he were found guilty of failing to monitor his staff. Last week, Nutt sued Freeze and Ole Miss in federal court, accusing them of orchestrating a smear campaign against him. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Oxford, Mississippi, alleges that Freeze and other school officials created a "false narrative" in an effort to place primary blame on Nutt for the NCAA's ongoing investigation. According to the complaint, Nutt seeks damages to cover "lost wages, emotional distress, embarrassment, attorney's fees and punitive damages. Freeze said he took responsibility for the ongoing NCAA investigation into the program, pointing out how the school self-imposed scholarship limitations and a bowl ban. After inheriting a team that won two games in and had lost 14 consecutive SEC contests, Freeze guided the Rebels to four straight bowl games in his first four years -- the first Ole Miss coach to do so.
