Former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze was in Tuscaloosa on Monday meeting with Alabama coach Nick Saban, according to a report.

It's not yet clear what the meeting was in relation to.

Freeze won't have any restrictions and won't have to serve any suspension if he's hired for a role other than head coach.

Former #OleMiss HC Hugh Freeze did meet with Nick Saban today. I don’t think it was all abt the Bama OC vacancy. The hunch here is Saban promotes from within for that..Last yr Saban hired Freeze’s old OC Dan Werner as an offensive analyst. Werner took the SoCar QB job last wk.

If Bama hires Freeze it will be because they believe they are above the NCAA and are untouchable.

New column: the best thing for Hugh Freeze would be to work with Nick Saban, in any capacity.


Quote
If Hugh Freeze has the opportunity to work for Nick Saban, he should take it.

It shouldn’t matter if the nature of the two's meeting in Tuscaloosa Monday, as first reported by the Tuscaloosa News, centered on Freeze becoming Alabama’s next offensive coordinator, a position coach or just an off-field staff job that has him analyzing film and doing grunt work on Saturdays. Freeze should accept the position, immediately.

Because the best thing that would have ever happened to him and his career is if 10 years ago Freeze had gone to work for Saban and learned what it takes to run a major college program at the highest level. He might have been able to avoid some of the mistakes he made at Ole Miss had that been the case.

It remains possible that Alabama could hire Hugh Freeze in some capacity.

Nick Saban, though, didn't want to say much about that during a brief meeting with the media Wednesday afternoon in Mobile.   


Quote
"I don't really have a comment on that right now," Saban said. "I think Hugh Freeze is a really good coach, so we'll keep evaluating and trying to make our staff as strong as we can make it."

Freeze was in Tuscaloosa recently and met with Saban, per a source, though it's unclear what they discussed.

The former Ole Miss coach has been out of football since resigning in July after, according to reports, a school investigation uncovered calls from Freeze to a number associated with a female escort service.

Alabama was one of at least five SEC schools that had contact with Freeze about on-field jobs this offseason. Saban wanted to hire Freeze as a co-offensive coordinator and position coach.

Here's why that didn't exactly pan out: https://trib.al/aLARNIl

If Nick Saban had gotten what he wanted, Hugh Freeze would be in Tuscaloosa this week helping Alabama prepare for its annual A-Day spring game.

It's what the former Ole Miss coach wanted, too.

The Southeastern Conference, though, wasn't in favor of that happening.

Alabama was one of at least five SEC schools that had contact with Freeze about on-field jobs this offseason. Saban wanted to hire Freeze as a co-offensive coordinator and position coach, sources told AL.com.

However, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey encouraged Alabama not to hire a man as well known for the personal shortcomings that led to his Ole Miss resignation as he is for his success as a coach.

It's the primary reason why Saban, the highest-paid and most powerful coach in college football, couldn't add Freeze to his staff this offseason, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation who provided previously unreported details about Alabama's pursuit of the former Ole Miss head coach.

It was only a few days after Saban's mid-January meeting with Freeze that he learned he couldn't make the hire. Sankey informed both Freeze and Alabama that it would look bad for the SEC for Freeze to be back coaching in the league while Ole Miss suffered from NCAA penalties incurred under his watch. The SEC preferred that Freeze, who resigned in July following a "pattern of personal misconduct," go off the radar for at least a little while before trying to return to work at one of its schools.

Greg Sankey, as you would expect, is not willing to engage in any conversation about his reported role in Hugh Freeze not being hired at multiple SEC schools.
