Hugh Freeze Resigns After Allegedly Calling An Escort Service From An Ole Miss Phone

Ole Miss head football coach Hugh Freeze resigned after a phone call to a number associated with an escort service came to light, via USA Today:

Athletics director Ross Bjork said in a news conference following the announcement that the resignation did not involve NCAA allegations but was based on a pattern of inappropriate conduct.

The call, which was made on the evening of Jan. 19, 2016, to a Detroit (313) area code, lasts just one minute, according to e-mails exchanged between the two parties. But the phone number is associated with several Web sites advertising a female escort based in Tampa, Fla., USA TODAY Sports has independently confirmed. The phone number has been disconnected.

That's a tough phone call to explain to the old ball and chain.
