  • Ole Miss

Matt Luke says Ole Miss is a "destination job" and that he is looking forward to implementing his long-term plan instead of being motivating for just 12 games.

Luke will be formally introduced as head coach on Monday in a press conference at 11:30 A.M. CT.

Taking over for Hugh Freeze, who resigned amidst controversy in July, Luke led Ole Miss to a 6-6 overall record (3-5 SEC West). "Matt Luke Head Coach" with Luke's picture. As a result of the school self-imposing a postseason ban in response to an NCAA investigation in which the governing body has yet to make a final ruling, Ole Miss saw its season come to an end Thursday night.

How Luke concluded his address to the team caught the players' attention, and I expect it received the same response from Bjork. We love that guy.




Gary Wunderlich set new records in three categories in his senior season as Ole Miss' kicker.

"We changed the culture in four months, imagine what we can do in a full off-season", Luke said.

His father, Tommy, and brother Tom, also played for Ole Miss. Ole Miss won three of their last four games, with the lone loss in the stretch coming against Texas A&M on November 18.
