Hugh Freeze Reportedly Made "Hundreds" Of Phone Calls To Ole Miss Booster

USA Today's Dan Wolken dropped some more bad news for Ole Miss on Friday.

According to Dan Wolken of USA Today, former Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze made "hundreds" of calls to former booster Lee Harris - the man at the center of the school's NCAA investigation - between 2015 and 2017. Wolken and his team reviewed the school's call records.

Former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze and disassociated booster Lee Harris, who allegedly gave a recruit cash and free food at his Oxford, Miss., restaurant, called each other at least 200 times between January 2015 and the end of Freeze’s tenure last month, according to records reviewed by USA TODAY Sports.

Wolken clarified that Freeze was not part of the NCAA's investigation into Harris - and that it's unclear what the two discussed during the calls.

Freeze is already out at Ole Miss - he resigned back on July 20 after it was revealed that he made "improper" phone calls during his tenure. But the school is still in the midst of an NCAA investigation - one it proactively instituted a self bowl-ban ahead of. It doesn't look like the school is done unraveling just what took place during the Freeze era just yet.
