The Rebels compete as part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. The program has had 36 head coaches since it began play during the 1893 season.[1] Since December 2012, Hugh Freeze has served as Ole Miss' head coach.[2]

The team has played more than 1,130 games over 119 seasons.[1] In that time, seven coaches have led the Rebels in postseason bowl games: Ed Walker, Johnny Vaught, Billy Brewer, Tommy Tuberville, David Cutcliffe, Houston Nutt and Freeze.[1] Vaught won six conference championships as a member of the SEC and three national championships with the Rebels.[3][4]

Vaught is the leader in seasons coached and games won, with 190 victories during his 25 years with the program.[1] C. D. Clark has the highest winning percentage of those who have coached more than one game, with .857.[1] Z. N.

Notes Edit

  1. Statistics correct as of the end of the 2012 college football season.
  2. Ole Miss did not field teams for the 1897 season due to a yellow fever epidemic, and for the 1943 season due to World War II. Ole Miss did not have a head coach for the 1905 season.[3]
  3. Divisional champions have advanced to the SEC Championship Game since the institution of divisional play beginning in the 1992 season. Since that time, Ole Miss has competed as a member of the SEC West.[13]
  4. 4.0 4.1 Johnny Vaught retired following the 1970 season due to a mild heart attack. He returned to coach the Rebels for the final eight games of the 1973 after the firing of Billy Kinard. Kinard finished the season with one win and two losses and Vaught finished with five wins and three losses.[14]
  5. 5.0 5.1 Tommy Tuberville resigned following the 1998 regular season to take the head coaching position at Auburn. David Cutcliffe was then hired and coached the Rebels to a victory in the 1998 Independence Bowl.[15]
