Ole Miss fans aren't thrilled with Matt Luke landing the full-time coaching job
The Ole Miss Rebels have their new coach, and it’s actually their old coach — Matt Luke. Luke just led the Rebels to a 6-6 record as the interim coach this year.
Does the Rebels’ quick hire of Luke mean the NCAA is going to issue strict sanctions on the program in the coming months? That remains to be seen, but there are plenty of questions surrounding the hire already.
The Rebels made the announcement official on Sunday night, sending out a tweet on the team’s official Twitter page:

However, it didn’t exactly go over well with the Ole Miss fan base. Though there was plenty of support for Luke, there were also plenty of fans who weren’t exactly thrilled with the hire.
Below, you can see some of the negative tweets from the Rebels’ Sunday night decision to remove the interim tag from Luke:
