Ole Miss (updated)

Billy Brewer took over at Ole Miss beginning with the 1983 and succeeding Steve Sloan. Brewer was the first Ole Miss insider hired since Coach Vaught's comeback ended in mid-70s. Brewer was 33-41 in SEC games over 11 seasons.

Brewer led Ole Miss to their first New Year's Day bowl game in over twenty years. In '91, after losing to Kentucky 35-6, a group of students, SABB or "Students Against Billy Brewer", purchased an ad calling for his firing.

Brewer's teams were banned from live television in '87. Following the '93 season another NCAA report led to a lack of institutional control. The AD and Brewer were fired in July 1994.

DC Joe Lee Dunn was named interim for the 1994 season. After going 2-6 in the SEC in '94, Dunn was named DC at Arkansas.

Tommy Tuberville coached Ole Miss from '95-98. Tuberville was SEC Coach of the Year in '97 after going 4-4 and landing in the Motor City Bowl. Tuberville was 12-20 in SEC games at Ole Miss. Two days after stating, "They'll have to carry me out of here in a pine box," Tuberville was hired at Auburn.

David Cutcliffe was the OC for Tennessee during the Manning years and the NC regular season with T Martin at QB. Cutcliffe coached Ole Miss from '98 thru '04. He had a 25-23 SEC record. He had winning records his first five years including a 10-3, '03 season with a Cotton Bowl victory and 7-1 SEC run.

After going 3-5 in the SEC in '04, AD Boone gave him an ultimatum to choose assistant coaches to fire. He refused and was fired where he landed as associate head coach and QB coach at Notre Dame.

Ed Orgeron was '04 National Recruiter of the Year as Asst. Head Coach at USC. Orgeron proved to be a successful recruiter at Ole Miss but could not translate the USC system into on-the-field success. After three seasons and a 3-21 SEC record, Orgeron was let go. After a season as the Saint's DL coach, Coach "O" allied with Lane Kiffin, first at Tennesse and now at USC.

Around the 2007 Thanksgiving season, Houston Nutt was hired as the Ole Miss coach. Nutt coached four seasons. It is perhaps not well known that Nutt led Ole Miss to their first consecutive New Year's Day bowl games in fifty years. After Nutt's team went 1-15 in SEC play his last two seasons as Coach Orgeron failed to continue to retain the players he recruited after no longer being on the Ole Miss payroll, Nutt was let go. A 2010 season opening loss to Jack Crowe's Jacksonville State team the morning after getting Oregon transfer QB Jeremiah Masoli eligible to play caused Nutt to lose staunch supporters.

Nutt's SEC record was 10-22 in four seasons.

Hugh Freeze was a former staff member for Ed Orgeron at Ole Miss. He was briefly interim coach between the firing of Orgeron and hiring of Nutt. He was nicknamed "Snake" by his high school prodigy Michael Oher for trying to leverage his ties to land a job on Phillip Fulmer's staff at Tennessee. After Oher decided to attend his family's school, Freeze came along for the ride to Ole Miss. Freeze enjoyed a heavy reliance on gadget plays. During Oher's senior season, Freeze was convinced by Leigh Ann Tuohy to utilize a running game behind Oher. Freeze was instrumental in getting Oher out of trouble when he assaulted a teammate who insulted Leigh Ann and Collins Tuohy.  During the assault in the study lounge a small child was also seriously injured.

On his own, Freeze led Arkansas State to a 10-2 regular season mark in 2011 and was hired in early December to replace Nutt.

Freeze teams went 19-21 in five seasons of SEC play including a dream run in 2015 that included Katy Perry, of all people, coming to Oxford to celebrate College Game Day. Freeze was the only coach to defeat Nick Saban twice and as recent as June 2016, was named on multiple sites as the number two coach in the SEC. Freeze recruited a cast of characters that included the Nkemdiche brothers and Laremy Tunsil.  His skills in keeping Oher out of trouble would be put to the test. His boldness in challening anyone who had info that Ole Miss was cheating in recruiting was also put to the test. Ole Miss received an NCAA Notice of Allegations and after going 5-7, 2-6 SEC in 2016 would choose to take itself out of postseason contention in 2017.  After Ole Miss put the majority of the blame for their troubles on the Houston Nutt error [sic], Nutt threatened to sue and had his legal team conduct an FOI request on Freeze's phone records (something for which Nutt was familiar). The records, after media scruting, ultimately revealed a pattern of conduct that Ole Miss found disturbing and after confession Freeze was forced to resign.

Matt Luke, 40 and an Ole Miss legacy, was named the interim coach. Luke's dream job is not a dream situation. Luke will be paid $500,000 over the next five months to be head coach. That's in addition to his yearly $660,000 salary as the co-offensive coordinator.

While Luke could keep the job in 2018 and beyond, Bjork offered no promises other than to say Luke is "going to be a great candidate for our job. We're going to watch him up close and personal. He and I will interact on a daily basis."

Even though he was with Freeze in all five of his seasons, Luke is mentioned in just one of the NCAA's 21 allegations, and he is not the focus of the allegation.

Jim Chaney: A career of ups and downs through the years
« Reply #752 on: July 30, 2017, 09:01:31 am »

Twenty years ago this fall, Kirby Smart was a junior safety on Georgia’s football team, Nick Chubb wasn’t yet two years old, Jacob Eason wasn’t born yet … and an offense coached by Jim Chaney was the toast of college football.

Chaney, now 55 years old, has a long track record.

“I would not say that he was predictable at Tennessee,” Jimmy Hyams said. “But he didn’t line up and run it out of the I either.”

Chaney was out of a job after Butch Jones was named Tennessee’s new head coach. Arkansas, which had just hired Bret Bielema, had an opening, and Chaney was hired. Seemingly, it was a clash of styles –

“It didn’t seem that he and Bielema were on the same page,” said Nate Allen...

Jerry DiPaola, Pittsburgh beat writer at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: “Chaney had all season to adjust to the loss of the reigning ACC Player of the Year — he was hurt in the second quarter of the opener — and the offense never found a true identity.”

Chaney’s first press conference at Georgia, last August, saw him loose yet witty. The tone of his second presser, as a disappointing season was wrapping up, was more somber, as he took responsibility and vowed to look at fixing things.

Georgia had a freshman quarterback in Eason, and a line that struggled, and could have had more stars at receiver. The result was an offense that struggled scoring passing (97th nationally) but also overall (87th) and with its identity. Often, the play-calling seemed geared to a more physical line, when it didn’t have that.

“You’d love to be a downhill team, but you do have a young quarterback that has played in the gun more,” Chaney said last December.

Miles said he auditioned for an analyst spot at FOX Sports, but called it a struggle.

"It's a struggle when you haven't had a censor button on the sidelines," he told The Advertiser. "You quickly find out I gave it the old college try, but it's not going to happen."

He continues to want to coach and holds no ill-will for the people in Baton Rouge.

"I miss the people who were so great to us," Miles said. "I'm still a Tiger, whether they want me or not."

In September, LSU fired Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron in the wake of the Tigers' 18-13 loss to Auburn that came down to the final second.

Miles finished 114-34 in 11 seasons at LSU.

Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt: ‘Nick Saban is the best coach in our sport’s history. Period’

https://www.seccountry.com/alabama/fox-sports-analyst-joel-klatt-nick-saban-best-coach-sports-history-period

Quote
Klatt, appearing on FS1’s Undisputed, mentioned that due to the rigors of the modern game and the constant cycling out of players, his run of 4 national championships in the past 9 seasons at Alabama is even more impressive than the 5 Super bowls Belichick has won.

Bruce Feldman: My favorite part of the @SInow Top 25 CFB preview are the rival coaches (scouting) quotes about each team:

One rumored to be an SEC coach:

He’s a (AARP) man! He’s 50! Happy birthday today to @CoachGundy. Before his epic rant, Gundy was 13-15 at Oklahoma State. Since, he’s 91-35
