Coach from the blind side gets a dream job

Who ever forget Sandra Bullock constant rumbling coach Bert Kottanu in the movie "The Blind Side", which received the award for the Academy? History Michael Auger and his journey to the NFL is admired, and now, perhaps it is time to start. Coach Cotton in the film is really a coach X & # 39; nd Freese, a native of Mississippi, which today has landed on his dream when he was named the new head coach at the University of Mississippi football.

Freese, a graduate of Southern Mississippi in 1992, was the first coaching job at a Christian school Briarcrest (now the name of the movie in Wingate Christian School). He was coordinator of the offensive team and a defensive coach defenders before he was appointed head coach in 1995 Trainer of the Year, "The Associated Press" six times.

Then Freese followed his persistent offensive staff "Oger", Mississippi, where in 2005 he became assistant athletic director for external affairs football. The next season he will coach tight ends and set coordinator, who served until 2007, when the then head coach Ed Orzharona released. In 2008, Freese turned out to train at NAIA Lambuth (TN) University, where he went 20-5 in two seasons, including a perfect 11-0 regular season in 2009. School went to the first playoff in 11 years, and ended the year at 12 -1 and the sixth team in the entire NAIA.

In 2010, Freese joined the coaching staff of the State of Arkansas as offensive coordinator, and after Steve Roberts resigned at the end of the season, Freese was appointed as the new head coach. "Red Wolves" thrive under strong offense "the Freeze", but, surprisingly, were very good in defense, ranking 15th in the country, protecting the defense, allowing 19.3 points per game.

Freeze inherits a team that has not won a game in the SEC this year, going 0-8 and 2-10 in the conference as a whole, one of the victories against FCS (formerly Div. I-AA) Southern Illinois. If several categories of protected protection in the bottom of the FBS, and the offense is not much better, the challenge ahead will be powerful, but Freese won wherever he was. He is busy creating his staff, and reportedly, his coach Grant Heard receivers and defensive line coach Chris Kiffin will follow him from the state of Arkansas in their new home at Ole Miss.
