So it begins… Ole Miss recruit decommits after Hugh Freeze departure

1:16 | College Football         Former Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt sues school for defamation of character

We did a quick assessment and determined that this was the only time that that particular number was ever called from Coach Freeze's phone since he started working here at Ole Miss in 2011.

"He has taken responsibility and is accountable to his actions", Bjork said.

Luke's promotion to interim head coach comes after the Ole Miss alum spent the last five seasons as co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach.

The school will probably still have to defend Freeze against the NCAA, as it can not simply reverse course this late in the game. It states those journalists were given information that stated most of the allegations in the NCAA investigation were on Nutt's watch.

Prior to arriving at Ole Miss, Freeze was the head coach at Arkansas St., when the Red Wolves went 10-2 in 2010.

"Once we looked at the rest of the phone records we found a pattern", Bjork said, per ESPN.com's Mark Schlabach. The school has already self-imposed several penalties, including a one-year postseason ban for the upcoming season.

Ole Miss opens the season on September 2 against South Alabama.

The Rebels reached unseen recruiting heights under him, with much of that success raising eyebrows throughout the Southeast.

Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze has resigned, effective immediately.

Nutt's lawsuit alleges that Freeze and Bjork promoted a false storyline that suggested that most of the ongoing case of NCAA infractions involved violations that occurred under Nutt.

Bjork, though, said Freeze was "transparent" in admitting the behavior. Even the names drip with novelistic flair: Seriously, Hugh Freeze and Houston Nutt - don't those sound like a couple fellas from Yoknapatawpha County? Bjork would not confirm the report, but said that Freeze was forthcoming with the truth when the three met earlier this week about a "pattern of behavior". Freeze's misconduct is unrelated to the NCAA investigation, university chancellor Jeff Vitter said. 'The conduct was just not something we could continue with as our head coach'. In 2013 alone, Freeze landed Robert Nkemdiche (the No. 1 recruit in the nation) and Laremy Tunsil (the No. 3 recruit) and Laquon Treadwell (the top wide receiver) in one class. The school's highly-paid football coach believed more in the "Do as I say, don't do as I do" mantra. Behind quarterbacks like Bo Wallace and Chad Kelly, Ole Miss was consistently one of the best schools in the SEC through the air.
