DESTIN, Florida — Hugh Freeze is facing a wave of allegations from the NCAA, but he has at least one man in his corner.
“I’ve known Hugh since 1991,” Auburn’s Gus Malzahn told ESPN, “and he’s always been a man of integrity.”
The Ole Miss football program was recently hit with a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA. The football program was charged with 13 violations, including nine under Freeze’s tenure. Four of those violations were considered severe. Freeze took full responsibility for the mistakes Tuesday.
When asked Tuesday if this is the end of the NCAA’s investigation, Freeze was not committed to a strong stance.
“I cannot comment,” he said. “Again, the confusing part of a lot of this process is you just can’t comment on an ongoing situation. I can’t comment on that now. I look forward to the finality of it, obviously, and then I’ll be able to stand and talk about it.”
