“Our goal is to compete for championships, and we are not making progress in that regard,” said Athletic Director Pete Boone. “It’s time for our team to have new leadership and a new direction.”

This news comes after the Kentucky Wildcats defeated the Rebels. They dropped the game 30-13 at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Kentucky.

Ole Miss has lost their last four games. This stretch included losses to the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide, No. 10 Arkansas Razorbacks, and the Auburn Tigers.

One of their wins this year has come against an FBS team. The other came against an FCS opponent.

Ole Miss defeated the Fresno State Bulldogs 38-28 on October 1st. Their other win came in a 42-24 win over FCS school Southern Illinois Salukis.
