Rebel Nation’s Reaction to Matt Luke as Head Coach

Ole Miss has had a rough season with rampant NCAA allegations and having to replace Hugh Freeze, just weeks before football season was set to kickoff, with Interim Head Coach Matt Luke. Throughout the season Luke received his share of criticism and praise, with many skeptical he would be given the position of head coach. 



Former Ole Miss Rebel Deuce McAllister had only praise for Luke.

Meanwhile local restaurateur and chef, John Currence, was less than excited about head coach hire.

Far, far less than excited.

Mayor Tannehill even showed her approval of the new head coach.


The Players, based on their reaction to the announcement at the team meeting, all seem to agree that he’s man for the job.



Regardless of public opinion, it’s clear to see that Luke has a passion for the team and will give it his all.
