Ed Orgeron is most known for his time at LSU, but before that, he spent three seasons in Oxford coaching at Ole Miss. Orgeron spent time at USC before going to Ole Miss and tried to bring the Trojan-style offense to Ole Miss, but it never worked out and Orgeron never got more than four wins with the Rebels.

Here is a breakdown of Orgeron's time at Ole Miss.

  • 2005: 3-8, 1-7 conference
  • 2006: 4-8, 2-6 conference
  • 2007: 3-9, 0-8 conference

Orgeron only had two wins against teams with winning records at Ole Miss. In 2007, the Rebels did not win a game in conference play for the first time since 1982. Orgeron was promptly fired in November 2007 after blowing a 14-point lead over Mississippi State.
