Ole Miss tabs Matt Luke as head coach

Ole Miss tabs Matt Luke as head coach

Luke, 41, now has a four-year contract that's worth $12.6 million. OHT has compiled a list of potential head coaches we would like to see on the Ole Miss sideline in the future.

Luke said Ole Miss is a "destination job" and that he is looking forward to implementing his long-term plan instead of being motivating for just 12 games. Mullen, 45, spent the last 13 years in the Southeastern Conference, cultivating offenses, developing quarterbacks and turning Mississippi State into a title contender. We want him to be our head coach. When he announced to the team that Luke, who led the Rebels to a 6-6 record capped off by an Egg Bowl win over rival Mississippi State, was staying on in a full-time role, the room erupted.

So when Luke's interim tag was lifted and the team was informed during a meeting Monday night, it was a special moment. That is a solid performance considering Hugh Freeze's departure and the season-ending injury to starting QB Shea Patterson midseason. A former center for the Rebels from 1995-98, Luke had also coached at Ole Miss from 2002-05, serving as the tight ends and offensive line coach for now-Duke coach David Cutcliffe.
