As Auburn brings Hugh Freeze back to the SEC, don't forget about the mess he once made at Ole Miss
They were discovered in 2017 on Freeze's phone when he still coached Ole Miss. After all, Ole Miss was about to take on a two-year postseason ban, not to mention a loss of scholarships. The goal was obvious: trick everyone who believed in Hugh Freeze, who trusted Hugh Freeze, who gave their blood, sweat and tears to Hugh Freeze until, when the truth came out later via the NCAA infractions report, and it was either too late or too hard to transfer. It’s a brutal and cutthroat thing to do to your own players and their parents, but hey, that’s the choice Hugh Freeze and Ole Miss made. "Certain statements made by University employees in January 2016 appear to have contributed to misleading media reports about Coach Nutt," Ole Miss said in a 2017 statement.wftv.com

Auburn has been looking for a coach since firing Bryan Harsin during the middle of the season. Auburn’s interest in Freeze reportedly intensified after Thanksgiving when current Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin decided to stay with the Rebels. Freeze resigned from Ole Miss ahead of the 2017 season after it was revealed he made calls to escorts from his Ole Miss phone.
