Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze steps down after using school phone to call escort service


Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze resigned Thursday after reports surfaced that he used a school-issued cell phone to contact an escort service.

The school confirmed the resignation, with assistant Matt Luke taking over in the interim.

According to Yahoo’s Pat Forde, phone records showed that Freeze had made a one-minute phone call with his school-issued cell phone to a phone number linked to a Florida-based escort service. Freeze told Yahoo! Sports that he had no recollection of the call, chose not to redact it from his public records, and believes it may have been a misdial.

“I’ve got no idea, to be honest,” Freeze said. “It was an 813 area code and that was a 313 number, I think that might have been a misdial. I don’t think there was even a conversation. There’s nothing to it.

“If I was trying to hide something, I would have. That call shows up nowhere else on my records. There is no story to that one.”
