Ole Miss athletic director Mike Thomas says he wants to find a new head coach at the end of the season and that he has not decided on one.
Thomas made the comments Wednesday during a press conference in Gainesville, Florida.
“I have not decided whether I’m going to keep Darrins Simmons or not,” Thomas said.
Simmons, the longtime coach of the Rebels, is on leave until a replacement can be found. “
The people of the university have a right to know whether they can continue to have that coach or not.”

The Rebels hired Jim McElwain to take over as interim coach on Dec. 3 after he was fired by the Gators after the first three games of the year.
McElwin led the Rebels to the SEC championship game last season and was the winner of the 2016 SEC Tournament.
He has since been promoted to the head coaching position.
