a few weeks after ole miss brass announced that head coach ed orgeron would be back in 2008, the third-year coach was fired saturday, espn.com has learned.

the news comes a day after the rebels lost to archrival mississippi state 17-14, capping off a winless sec season for the first time in over two decades. the rebels dominated much of the game, but momentum swung after orgeron opted to go for it on a fourth-and-1 at midfield in the fourth quarter leading 14-0. benjarvus green-ellis was stopped and the bulldogs staged a frantic rally.

in three seasons orgeron's teams won 10 games and had several close losses against ranked teams, but they could never get a big win. his recruiting classes were always highly ranked but the rebels struggled on both sides of the ball, ranking near the bottom of most statistical categories in the sec.

orgeron, who had been pete carroll's right-hand man at usc, had continued to recruit well. he had hoped he could get to 2008, when texas transfer jevan snead, a former blue-chipper, would become eligible.but the turn-the-corner win never came.

oh yeah that was great to see too!

my senior year in high school our coach was getting pushed out because he was not a "winner" yet our high school won 6 games the previous five years before he came and that year we went 8-2 and missed the playoffs due to a three way tie coin flip

anyway he brought us seniors in his office and said "men i came here when you were sophomores and we had 13 guys on the varsity"...........then he started droping his head and he said "********** i can't do this" he walked to the door and said i love you boys and i never saw him again
