AP Source reveals number of violations for Ole Miss football under Freeze
The Notice of Allegations recently given to Ole Miss may mean more trouble for the football program, and Hugh Freeze, than originally expected.
An AP source has said that the Rebels’ football program has been cited in 13 of the 28 violations that were originally reported in the NOA. Furthermore, nine of those occurred during coach Freeze’s tenure.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.
This news goes against the opinions of many media members in the aftermath of Yahoo Sports’ Pat Forde’s report on Jan. 29. FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman tweeted that most of the violations in the Freeze regime revolved around Laremy Tunsil.
ESPN’s Joe Schad also tweeted that most of the violations were not football and most of the football-related violations predated Freeze’s time in Oxford.
The violations also involve women’s basketball and track, but how they are divided among the three sports is unknown.
The school has 90 days to respond to the allegations, per standard NCAA protocol.
