The man whom Hugh Freeze replaced as Mississippi’s football coach was at least partially responsible for Freeze’s stunning downfall. It was a recently filed civil lawsuit from Houston Nutt – who coached Ole Miss from 2008 to ’11 – against the university that unearthed the phone records that eventually revealed Freeze’s school-issued cellphone had dialed an escort service on at least one occasion in 2016. Freeze resigned Thursday after university officials found that the coach engaged in a ”pattern of personal misconduct” that was unacceptable.

All four parole commissioners who conducted the hearing voted for his release after a half-hour of deliberations. ”Thank you, thank you, thank you,” Simpson said quietly as he buried his head on his chest with relief. Inmate No. 1027820 made his plea for freedom in a stark hearing room at the Lovelock Correctional Center in rural Nevada as the parole commissioners questioned him via video from Carson City, a two-hour drive away.
