As it turns out, getting caught with the phone numbers of escort services on his University of Mississippi-issued cell might have been the best thing that ever happened to Hugh Freeze’s coaching career — or at least the rebirth of it.

Sounds strange, but this is college football after all, where anything can be explained away in pursuit of victory.

The phone numbers are certainly explainable, or forgivable, or ignorable, at least to a lot of people who aren’t going to get too hung up on someone’s personal life.

They were discovered on Freeze’s phone in 2017, when he still coached Ole Miss.
