Former Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze reportedly interviewed for a major assistant coaching job. According to college football insider Pete Thamel, Freeze interviewed for the Tennessee offensive coordinator vacancy earlier this week.

Former Tennessee offensive coordinator Tyson Helton, the brother of USC head coach, took over as the new head coach at Western Kentucky. That left a void for Jeremy Pruitt to fill after just his first year as the Volunteers head coach.

Helton's departure opened the door for Freeze to get back into the game.

Here's more from Pete Thamel.

Freeze hasn't coached since he was fired by Ole Miss in 2016, but it appears he could be in line for a new gig - in the SEC no less.

The former Ole Miss head coach has also been rumored for a potential Alabama offensive coordinator position if Mike Locksley leaves for a head coaching opportunity.
