Hugh Freeze may be given another opportunity to coach within the Southeastern Conference. This time it may not be as a Head Coach.
Freeze, who was fired by Ole Miss this summer, was in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on Monday. He met with Crimson Tide Head Coach Nick Saban about his vacant offensive coordinator job.
Saban has been without an offensive coordinator for a day, as the former Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Brian Daboll was announced as the new Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator on Sunday. He replaced Rick Dennison, who was fired by the team following the Bills first playoff appearance since 1999.
Freeze, the former Rebels Head Coach, was let go with cause after reportedly being involved with an escort service. He denied making calls to the escort service, but Houston Nutt’s lawyers found that he did.
While the Rebels were hit with NCAA infractions due to violations that happened under Freeze, he was not hit with a show-cause penalty. If he is a head coach again, he would be suspended four games.
This would be the Crimson Tide’s fourth offensive coordinator in two seasons. Lane Kiffin began the 2016, before being fired right before the College Football Playoff National Championship game.
Steve Sarkisian, who had been serving as an offensive analyst, was then promoted as offensive coordinator. He then left for the Atlanta Falcons as their offensive coordinator.
Daboll was hired to be the offensive coordinator for the 2017 season. After just one season, he left. He or the Bills will reportedly owe the Crimson Tide $240,000 for breaking his contract.
