If you are asking yourself why are we posting a story on a college football coach getting a contract extension, then you aren't paying attention to the Coaching Carousel season.
Ole Miss Coach Hugh Freeze got his extension Tuesday morning. Complete with a pay bump--up to $4 million a year per reports.
And it's newsworthy because several blogs/outlets reported that he was the leader for the University of Florida open coaching job.
Those reports were obviously incorrect.
Freeze has gotten results each year with the Rebels, this year the team has been in the Top 10 most of the season and just beat arch rival Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl, knocking the Bulldogs out of playoff contention.
Freeze announced the contract on Twitter:
Very blessed to be at THE University of Miss & work for and with great people and fans! REBELNATION, say it with me, I AM AN OLE MISS REBEL

His boss, Athletic Director Ross Bjork confirmed it:
Proud that we have @CoachHughFreeze leading our program & young men for a long time to come. Agreement is in place & future is bright!
