I have to admit, this one stings a little bit. I applied to be the next head football coach of the Ole Miss Rebels, and I thought my resume was outstanding. It consisted of mostly national championships on NCAA football, and a long established heritage of winning in my DNA. I even visited Oxford to get a feel for the place, and I fell in love.
It turns out Ole Miss decided to go a different direction. That’s their right, and I sincerely hope everything works out for them. Fans of the Rebels certainly deserve to have a winning program.
Of course, if it doesn’t work out or Luke decides to leave, the Ole Miss administrators have my number on file.
