Gulfport native Matt Luke earned his dream job - officially.
After leading Ole Miss to a 6-6 campaign as interim head coach, including a 31-28 victory in the Egg Bowl, the Rebels announced today they officially removed Luke's interim tag, making the former Admiral the permanent head coach of the program.
After his high school career at Gulfport, Luke played center for the Rebels from 1995-98. He just finished his tenth season on the Ole Miss coaching staff, spread out over two stints (2002-05, 2012-present).
