When Ole Miss decided to make a change at Head Coach for football they turned to two men to guide them on their quest. These two men are Archie Manning and Mike Glenn and are now co-chairs on the committee for finding a new Athletics Director for the University of Mississippi.
The two are responsible for the hiring of new head football coach Hugh Freeze and will look to put their talents together to find a new AD by the end of the Spring Semester (May). There are many interest in the position at Ole Miss and current Rebels AD Pete Boone has agreed to step down as soon as a new AD is named. Chancellor Dan Jones has faith that Manning and Glenn will get the job done and help bring back football to its glory at Ole Miss. Others serving on the committee are Richard Noble (Ole Miss Alumn), Ron Rychlak (Faculty Member), Ethel Young-Minor (Faculty Member), and Cal Mayo (UMAA Foundation Governing Board Member).
