532. Ole Miss football. . . Steve Sloan. Steve Sloan. 1978-1982. 20-34-1 overall record. 2. player

Steve Sloan was a proven head coach before coming to Ole Miss. His best season with the Rebels was his first season when he went 5-6. Sloan's best record in conference play was 3-3 in his second season.

Here is a breakdown of Sloan's time with the Rebels.

  • 1978: 5-6, 2-4 conference
  • 1979: 4-7, 3-3 conference
  • 1980: 3-8, 2-4 conference
  • 1981: 4-6-1, 1-5-1 conference
  • 1982: 4-7, 0-6 conference

Sloan was never fired from Ole Miss, but I am guessing it was something discussed by athletics, especially after going 0-6 in conference play in his last season. Sloan decided to leave Ole Miss after the 1982 season and went on to become the head coach at Duke.
