Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze Resigns After Escort News

Via Yahoo Sports 

, Hugh Freeze has resigned from Ole Miss. The move comes after the  school found at least one call from the coach to an escort service on  his school-issued cell phone.

Athletic director Ross Bjork said the initial phone call originally  was “attributed to a misdial.” But further vetting of Freeze’s phone  records disclosed a “pattern of conduct” that led the school  administration to confront Freeze this week. Bjork said he and school  administrators spoke to Freeze Wednesday night.

“Coach Freeze was very transparent, open, honest and admitted the  conduct,” Bjork said, without specifying what that conduct was.

Freeze met again with the Ole Miss administration Thursday morning  and offered his resignation, which was immediately accepted. Bjork said  that if Freeze had not offered his resignation he would have been fired  for cause, citing the “moral turpitude” clause in Freeze’s contract.  Bjork said there was no buyout of the contract and no settlement.

“He admitted that conduct to us,” Bjork said. “None of us are  perfect. Nobody in this room is perfect. I think we need to respect how  he resigned and respect his privacy.”
