In this November 28, 2019 photo, Mississippi head coach Matt Luke removes his headset during an NCAA college football game against Mississippi State, in Starkville, Miss.

However, he said the apathy surrounding the program and the lack of support were going to be hard to overcome. "While you can see progress in certain areas we are not experiencing enough success on the field".

"We will always be grateful to coach Luke for his leadership, particularly from a recruiting, academic and overall culture standpoint", Carter said.

Ole Miss players are reportedly furious with the decision. Attendance was the lowest it had been in over a decade. He was 28-15 at Southern Cal after taking over a program that was ineligible for postseason play, but was sacked five games into his fourth season.

Ole Miss has not been nationally competitive for a while, though. I think it's very attractive.

However, athletic director Keith Carter announced it was time to go a different route.

Carter wouldn't put a timeline on when he expected to have a new coach, but said it would happen as quickly as possible.

Matt Luke's tenure as head football coach began in July 2017.

Luke, a former Ole Miss offensive lineman, was elevated to interim head coach about two weeks before preseason practice started in 2017 when MS fired Hugh Freeze.

Luke guided the Rebels, who were already banned from the postseason by the NCAA, to a 6-6 season that helped him land a four-year deal through 2021.

Defensive coordinator Mike McIntyre will act as interim head coach until a new hire is made.
