The Matt Luke era is over.
The University of Mississippi and athletic director Keith Carter have cut ties with the third-year head coach after a disappointing finish to a second consecutive losing season.
Luke, who took over as an interim after the Hugh Freeze debacle, went 6-6 in 2017 and won the Egg Bowl on the road. By salvaging what could have been a disaster season, and beating Mississippi State, Luke was brought on as the full-time head coach to the tune of a four-year, $12.6 million dollar contract. Ole Miss regressed each year with Luke at the helm, and went 5-7 in 2018 and 4-8 in 2019.
