Ole Miss has reportedly decided to make a coaching change. Matt Luke, the man who took over for Hugh Freeze in the summer of 2017, has been fired after three seasons with the school according to multiple reports. The news was first reported by Rivals’ Rebel Grove and confirmed by Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel. Luke had a record of 15-21 in that time at Ole Miss and his record had declined by a game each season from 6-6 to 5-7 and then 4-8 in 2019 after the Rebels infamously lost the Egg Bowl Thursday night. Per Rebel Grove, the buyout for Luke and his staff is in the range of $17 million. Luke had hired former Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre to run the defense ahead of the 2019 season and also hired former Michigan and Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez to be the team’s offensive coordinator. -Nick Bromberg, Yahoo, Read More
