Ole Miss fires Luke, who was 15- 21 in 3 seasons


Ole Miss has expelled head football trainer Matt Luke, who posted a 15- 21 record in three seasons at the helm.”After assessing the general direction of our football program, we didn’t see enough energy on the field and decided a change is vital all together for our understudy competitors to contend at the most elevated level,” athletic executive Keith Carter said in an announcement Sunday night. “While upgrades were apparent in specific parts of the program, we are judged at last by our record, and, shockingly, we didn’t fulfill the guideline of accomplishment that we anticipate from our program.”We will consistently be thankful to Coach Luke for his administration, especially from a selecting, scholarly and in general culture point of view. Simultaneously, winning is significant, and we realize that we can go after titles at Ole Miss.”Luke, who played at Ole Miss, took over as the Rebels’ between time lead trainer only seven days before the beginning of fall camp in 2017 after Hugh Freeze was terminated. Luke was named the perpetual lead trainer following the 2017 season.The Rebels completed 4-8 this season, including a 21- 20 misfortune on Thanksgiving night to equal Mississippi State, a game where the Rebels botched an opportunity to send the game into extra time when recipient Elijah Moore was punished for over the top festival in the wake of getting a touchdown pass and afterward professing to pee at last zone. The Rebels were upheld up 15 yards for the additional point, and Luke Logan’s PAT kick was no good.Luke didn’t take the Rebels to any bowl games. The school deliberate a bowl boycott in 2017 due to NCAA infringement that happened when Freeze was the mentor, and a second year of postseason boycott was included by the NCAA in 2018, despite the fact that the Rebels were only 5-7 that season.”I need to express gratitude toward Coach Luke for his dedication to Ole Miss,” Carter said. “His trustworthiness, class and devotion to this program and our understudy competitors is incredible, and we will consistently acknowledge how he ventured up when his college required him the most. We wish him the absolute best, and he will consistently be a treasured individual from the Ole Miss family.”Just seven days prior, Carter told the Clarion-Ledger that the football program was “going in an incredible course” and that he was “amped up for Coach Luke.”
