The Ole Miss Rebels are without a coordinator as they’re previous defensive coordinator Dave Wommack retired. Strong was an assistant coach at Ole Miss in 1990.

“I woke up this morning and I just had a different perspective. It’s time to right this ship,” Freeze said per “We’re going to evaluate, get the right coaches in here, recruit the right players and get back moving in the right direction.”

Strong has previously been a defensive coordinator in the Southeastern Conference twice. He was with the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Florida Gators.

Strong could be like Wil Muschamp. After a failed experiment with the Gators, it became the Auburn Tigers defensive coordinator for a year.

Then after last season, Muschamp was named the South Carolina head coach. Strong would hope to have the similar path should be continue to coach.
