Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze has resigned, effective immediately.

The University tweeted the news moments ago.

As noted, co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Matt Luke will be the interim head coach.

Dan Wolken of USA Today reported that Freeze made a call to an escort service, as discovered by Houston Nutt’s attorney earlier this month.

Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork told Yahoo’s Pat Forde there was "additional troubling information" in the phone records.

Freeze went 39-25 in his five seasons with the Rebels.

There will be way more to this story, so continue to check Team Speed Kills tonight, and through the entire weekend, for updates.
