Hugh Freeze refers to his tenure at Ole Miss as a “journey.”
Suffice it to say the journey has moved at a quicker pace than even Freeze could have imagined.
A Mississippi native, inspirational leader and one of the nation’s top rising coaches, Freeze was the first choice to return championships to Ole Miss Football and was introduced as the Rebels’ 37th head coach on December 5, 2011.
In the time since Freeze inherited a program coming off a two-win season and 14 straight Southeastern Conference losses, the Rebels have made four straight bowl appearances and won three of them. The team’s win total under Freeze has risen as consistently as possible – from seven in 2012 to eight in 2013, nine in 2014 to 10 last season.
