Well, I was wrong. I figured Ed Orgeron would get a chance to coach prized Texas transfer QB Jevan Snead for at least one year. However, Bruce Feldman is reporting that Coach O is out at Ole Miss. SEC fans will need to come up with a new running gag, I guess.
That’s 3 high profile coaches down in 24 hours – Dennis Franchione, Bill Callahan, and now Orgeron. If Houston Nutt really is next, as reported sporadically, it won’t be this weekend since it’d look awfully bad to fire a coach the same weekend he beat #1 and the school’s greatest rival.
