Hugh Freeze may have put Ole Miss on probation, but he enjoyed a fair amount of success against Alabama during his five years in Oxford. His teams were 2-3 against the Crimson Tide, beating them in back-to-back years in 2014 and 2015.
Bu Freeze coming to work for Nick Saban? It isn’t as far-fetched as you might think.
In fact, it could happen soon.
Multiple outlets have reported that Freeze met with Saban today in regards to Alabama’s opening at offensive coordinator. The Tide must replace Brian Daboll, who left for the NFL’s Buffalo Bills over the weekend.
Freeze won’t face penalties if he is hired as an assistant coach.
Saban has made it a practice hiring former Head Coaches to join his staff. Freeze would join Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian on the front.
