SEC analyst Booger McFarland names three coaches he thinks would be interested in Ole Miss job
Hugh Freeze resigned from Ole Miss on Thursday night after it was revealed he made several calls to an escort service using his university-issued phone.
Now, the school has named former co-offensive coordinator Matt Luke to the interim head coach spot, but that is an arrangement not likely to extend past the 2017 season, if it even lasts that long.
The speculation will heat up quickly about who should take over on a full-time basis for Freeze, and SEC Network analyst Booger McFarland thinks former LSU coach Les Miles, Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin and former NFL coach Chip Kelly would be interested in coaching the Rebels:
3 names that would want the Ole Miss job IMO- Les MIles Lane Kiffin long shot Chip Kelly

Miles is actively looking for a new job after LSU fired him last year and Kelly was fired by the San Francisco 49ers after last season.
Both would likely be interested in the job if called, while Kiffin, who has yet to coach a game for Florida Atlantic, may be a bit tougher to convince to come to Oxford.
