MS coach Matt Luke ready to seize 'destination job'

Matt Luke Ole Miss

The Rebels did have an up-and-down season under Luke but found a way to finish the year with a 6-6 record.

Luke, 41, guided the Rebels to an upset of No. 14 Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl on Thursday night.

"We changed the culture in four months, imagine what we can do in a full off-season", Luke said.

The Florida Gators hired Dan Mullen as head coach on Sunday, leaving MSU looking for a replacement. In the five seasons prior to 2017, Luke served as offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator.

Experts believe these are two moves that are having a big impact on the sports community in Mississippi.

Luke took over in July after the unexpected resignation of former coach Hugh Freeze. We want him to be our head coach. Ole Miss is in a hard spot, but Luke held the ship together on short notice when Hugh Freeze was let go following NCAA turmoil this offseason. Little's efforts helped Ole Miss to 355 yards of offense for an average of 6.6 yards per play. The weekly honor marks the third of his career, as he also earned SEC Special Teams Player of the Week accolades following the Rebels' 2015 win over Alabama and the 2016 victory at Texas A&M.
