Ole Miss Coach Freeze Gets Raise and Extension

OXFORD, Miss.–Ole Miss announced on Tuesday that head football coach Hugh Freeze and the university have agreed to a salary raise and extension.

His salary will now rise to $3 million per year and have an automatic raise of $150,00 over the next three seasons after 2014.

“Our confidence in Coach Freeze goes far beyond his progress on the field and in recruiting,” said Chancellor Dan Jones. “With the integrity with which he leads our football program, he has demonstrated he will win the right way. Our student athletes and our football program could not be in better hands.”

Freeze also received a contract extension of one year that takes his contract out to the maximum allowed by the state at four years.

“I would like to thank Dr. Jones, Ross and our administration for their continued commitment to this program,” Freeze said. “The support they have provided our staff has been unwavering and is most evident in the current renovation of our facility, which I can’t wait to see re-open.”

That renovation was a $12.5 million investment into the Manning Center IPF where a new dining hall and nutrition center were added along with a team meeting room to accommodate 200 people among several other things.

The salaries for the assistant coaches under freeze also rose 12 percent which totaled $400,00.
