Hugh Freeze from Ole Miss. is history

Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze has resigned, effective immediately, the school announced Thursday night.

The school is holding a press conference at 7:30 p.m. CT, which will be televised on ESPNews.

Yahoo Sports dropped a bombshell Thursday night, at the same time the school announced Freeze's resignation, saying Ole Miss found at least one call from Freeze to an escort service from his school-issued phone:

Yahoo Sports first inquired last week with Freeze and athletic director Ross Bjork about a call at 8:34 p.m. on Jan. 21, 2016, to a Detroit number that is linked via various websites to a Florida-based escort. Freeze told Yahoo last Friday that the call had been brought to Ole Miss administrators’ attention by former coach Houston Nutt’s attorney, Thomas Mars, and that they had questioned him about it. Freeze told Yahoo he had no idea why the call was on his phone records.

When questioned about the call, Freeze said he had "no idea."

"I think that might have been a misdial," Freeze told Yahoo Sports. "I don’t think there was even a conversation. There’s nothing to it.”

Former Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt's lawsuit against the school — or, fact-finding by Nutt's layers — was the catalyst for Ole Miss learning about the phone call, Yahoo reports.

Freeze was 39-25 in six seasons at Ole Miss.

Co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Matt Luke has been named the Rebels interim head coach.
