Podcast: Walker Jones on Matt Luke and the Ole Miss brand”

Interim Mississippi coach Matt Luke almost shed a tear during his introductory press conference Monday. During the press conference, Luke discussed what it feels like to realize his dream of becoming the head coach of his alma mater and how passionate he is about leading this program through a hard time.

The man filling in as head coach of Ole Miss' football team will make $1.15 million this season, according to the school's athletic director.

At the very least, Luke's bank account will receive a nice boost in the coming months. A job I've been preparing for all my life.

"I can't believe I have spent 14 years of my life as a player or coach here".

"I was surprised", Luke said.

Coach Luke's full remarks can be seen below.

Hugh Freeze resigned from Ole Miss on Thursday of last week. "Like I said this is all so much right now. I cannot wait to walk down that tunnel September 2". As for a coaching search, Bjork said he's gotten a number of calls but that he won't talk about the job and that the focus is on Luke. He hopes to have a hire finalized by the end of the week.

"We had a great five-year run, but my job is to get the players ready to play".

"As the season progresses, we will do what is best for the program", Bjork said.

"His passion and energy is contagious", Luke said.
