SB Nation, SI.com and the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal are reporting that Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze has reached agreement on a new deal that will pay him $4 million a year for the next four years, plus bonus consideration for his staff, estimated between $400,000 and $600,000.
Monday, SBNation reported that Florida had made an offer to Freeze in the $4.2 to $4.3 million range. Florida released a statement denying the school had made an offer to anyone, but sources with knowledge of the talks say that helped drive Ole Miss to the $4-million mark.
SB Nation says an announcement from Ole Miss is expected today.
