These past 24 hours have been downright embarrassing for Hugh Freeze. First the former Ole Miss head football coach announced his resignation from the team. Then, just moments later, it was revealed that his decision stemmed from a phone call he made to an escort service using his university-provided cell phone.
After investigating Freeze’s phone records, Ole Miss officials came across a pattern of calls that they deemed “troubling.” After speaking with Freeze about the matter, both parties felt it was in their best interests to part ways, with Freeze announcing his resignation.
Hugh Freeze probably thought resigning, instead of being canned, would help save him from the wrath of social media. He was wrong.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Freeze’s resignation following news of his questionable phone records:

Well we know the escort service Hugh Freeze called wasn’t in Atlanta…ya know because Ole Miss has never been to the SEC Championship.
