Alabama was one of at least five SEC schools that had contact with Freeze about on-field jobs.

But he still does not have a coaching position. Here's what he thinks as to why that's the case: https://trib.al/tXHZq2b


Quote
The former Ole Miss coach was a part of an NCAA investigations, and Freeze resigned in July of 2017 for personal conduct reasons, as school officials were made aware of calls to an escort service in Freeze's phone records.

Earlier this week, Freeze was asked if he has been blackballed.

"I think that, this past year, there were several schools that showed great interest in me," he said. "And for whatever reason, they all ended the same way. I think that's a question that's better asked of people that had discussions in regard to my employment. It's probably unfair for me to speculate on that.

"I think the climate in America this past year probably affects a lot of administrators' decision-making and they don't really take the time to hear what our story is. They probably come quick to make some kind of judgment -- maybe that happened and maybe it didn't."

Ole Miss was charged with 21 violations -- 15 of them considered major, with some dating back to the Houston Nutt era (2008-11), but most related to Freeze's tenure.

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

Terms of Barry Odom’s new contract: Salary raised to $3.05 million through 2024. That’s a two-year extension and a $600k raise.

Column: On retiring Ohio State coach Urban Meyer's complex legacy -- so much winning, so much baggage, so much drama.


Quote
If only the moment could have been frozen.

On a clear, chilly Nov. 6 night in Salt Lake City in 2004, Utah smashed Colorado State. The Utes were undefeated, on their way to a 12-0 record and a national top-five ranking — a dream season at a school of modest football heritage. After the game, the 40-year-old coach wrapped his right arm around his wife, pumped his left fist in the air and led the team in the tradition he started — they all sang the fight song with the band and student section.

Stop the march of time, bottle it, put it on a shelf.

If the Urban Meyer story ended right there, with that moment I watched in Rice-Eccles Stadium that night, it would be sweetly uncomplicated. It would be less glorious, for sure, but also less troubling and controversial.

The Meyer story wasn’t ending. It was just getting started, with all its attendant melodrama. More than a decade of incredible winning and ugly headlines and strange health crises have now reached a new plot twist — Urban Meyer stepping down at Ohio State at age 54.

Next act, unknown.

If this were Nick Saban retiring in his late 60s, the accolades would flow in from every corner of the sport. Saban is the only coach of the 21st century to have accomplished more than Meyer. His three national titles at two different schools have earned legendary status — but it all comes with so much baggage and uncertainty attached.
How much antisocial behavior by players and staff was tolerated in the pursuit of victory? How fragile has his state of mind been all this time? And does anyone really believe this is the end?

This isn’t a clean break. Not a simple ride off into the sunset.

Trying to sum up the man’s career took me back to that night at Utah. It was a beautiful time, a fresh story. But ambition was stirring within Meyer —

...When [Aaron] Hernandez was charged with murder four years after leaving Florida, Meyer said he personally engaged in Bible study with the troubled tight end while he was a Gator. Whatever efforts the coach made to help Hernandez did not involve significantly diminished playing time; he played in 40 of 41 games during his three seasons at Florida.

But the drama at Florida wasn’t simply contained to the players. Meyer himself created an entirely different strain of it.

After a shocking upset loss to Nick Saban and Alabama in the 2009 Southeastern Conference championship game, Meyer went to the hospital thinking he was having a heart attack. That was ruled out, but the stress of staying at the top of the profession was eating him alive —

On Mark Richt’s abrut retirement as Miami coach.

Quote
Richt abruptly announced he was retiring from coaching after 18 seasons — including the past three at UM that produced a 26-13 record, emphasizing the decision was all his.

In the span of a few weeks, the Canes lost elite defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, who left to become Temple’s head coach. They watched recruiting sag sharply to a national ranking of 34th for the recent early signing period. They were humiliated in a 35-3 loss to an ordinary Wisconsin team in the Pinstripe Bowl to end a 7-6 season.

The search for his replacement had better be far-reaching, painstaking, creative and not constricted by money limitations. Miami needs either a proven winner or The Next Big Thing, someone with the draw to make recruits want to come to Miami, someone who has the map to getting UM back all the way — and the patience to commit to it.

It can be a veteran coach. Could UM maybe coax Urban Meyer to change his mind about retiring? Its worth a feeler phone call.

Miami’s next guy also could be a find, a gem. Like what Oklahoma now has in 35-year-old Lincoln Riley.

In any case, the Hurricanes need a head coach who wants this program, and this challenge, as much as this program needs and wants him.

Richt returning to his alma mater seemed to be that perfect marriage.

It seemed perfect as recently as late last season, when Miami once was 10-0 and ranked No. 2 in the nation before the train derailed.

The list of all-time winningest coaches in college football history is well-known, but what about only those who coached in the SEC?

Below are the top 10 winningest coaches in SEC history, listed in reverse order. (NOTE: Win totals are those compiled only at SEC schools, while those schools were members of the SEC. For example, Robert Neyland won 173 games at Tennessee, but 61 of those in the Southern Conference).

1. Paul “Bear” Bryant, Kentucky/Alabama (292)

2. Steve Spurrier, Florida/South Carolina (208)

3. Vince Dooley, Georgia (201)

4. Nick Saban, LSU/Alabama (194)

5. Johnny Vaught, Ole Miss (190)

6. Ralph “Shug” Jordan, Auburn (175)

7. Phillip Fulmer, Tennessee (152)

8. Mark Richt, Georgia (145)

Report of a $500,000 raise to $4MM per for Ed O.

But you ask for a rise, there’s no surprise, that they’re giving none away.

Away.

Would have been the only time he had regular season games against Arkansas with his Junction Boys.

Was a big loss for UK football:

Vince Dooley’s wife had best reaction to Georgia finally naming Sanford Stadium field after him



Quote
“My wife (Barbara), who is a lot more emotional, was more than pleased. In fact, she hugged the president and started crying. She was so happy with the moment she just started saying, ‘Hallelujah,' and started crying.”

Dooley now joins a long line of former coaches with names attached to fields or stadiums.

Alabama has Bryant-Denny Stadium for Bear Bryant. Auburn has Jordan-Hare Stadium for Shug Jordan. Georgia Tech has (Bobby) Dodd Stadium. Ole Miss has (Johnny) Vaught Stadium. Tennessee has Neyland Stadium for General Robert Neyland.

Now, Dooley and Steve Spurrier at Florida have fields in their honor.
