PHOENIX -- The Alliance of American Football's Arizona Hotshots announced Thursday that former Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze will be offensive coordinator on head coach Rick Neuheisel's staff for the 2019 inaugural season.
Freeze, who has 17 years of head coaching experience at the high school and collegiate level, went 39-25 in five seasons at Ole Miss
(2012-16). He resigned in July 2017 after Ole Miss chancellor Jeffrey Vitter announced "a pattern of personal misconduct inconsistent with the standards we expect from the leader of our football team" was discovered.
The eight-team league was founded March 20, 2018, by filmmaker Charlie Ebersol and former NFL general manager Bill Polian. It will begin play Feb. 9, 2019. It will have teams in Atlanta; Birmingham, Alabama; Orlando, Florida; Memphis, Tennessee; Phoenix; Salt Lake City, Utah; San Antonio, Texas; and San Diego.
Former Florida and South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier will be the coach of the Orlando team.
