Is Notre Dame offensive coordinator Chip Long a real candidate for Ole Miss head coaching vacancy?

Ole Miss fired Matt Luke on Sunday after the Rebels “pissed away” a chance to win the Egg Bowl over their in-state rival the Mississippi St. Bulldogs on Thanksgiving night.

One of the hottest names to surface for the Rebels has been current Memphis Tigers head coach Mike Norvell.

The Tigers can lock up a Cotton Bowl bid this weekend with a win over the Cincinnati Bearcats in the AAC Championship Game.

For Chip Long to be mentioned in the search as the new Rebels coach is a pretty big deal.

If Ole Miss really does interview and offer Long the position — again, I think he would jump at the chance to take over an SEC program.

No interviews have been reported at this time, but we will keep a close eye on what happens between FSU, Ole Miss, and Memphis over the next few weeks.
