Sankey blocks Saban from hiring Freeze

Hugh Freeze is one of only three SEC coaches to beat Nick Saban multiple times during Saban's time in Tuscaloosa

Per the report, Sankey told Alabama that hiring Freeze would be a bad look for the conference as a whole while his previous program, Ole Miss, suffered from NCAA penalties.

Saban has praised Freeze heavily in the past - while at Ole Miss, Freeze scored two wins over Saban's Crimson Tide - and said in January that Alabama was working to find a way to bring him on board.

Freeze remains one of only three coaches that has handed Saban multiple losses during his time with the Crimson Tide.

The report elaborates that both LSU and Missouri were two other schools that had interest in hiring Freeze but were discouraged from doing so by Sankey and the SEC.

The SEC established grounds for the commissioner to intervene in such cases.

The Kroger Co .'s EPS for the trailing 12 months is 1.07. ( NYSE :KR) on Monday, January 22. ( NYSE :KR) on Monday, January 29. The company reported $0.53 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating the consensus estimate of $0.52 by $0.01.

Instead of hiring Freeze, Alabama hired Penn State's Josh Gattis as its co-OC and WRs coach. Ole Miss is also facing a bowl ban in 2018 and scholarship reductions for a number of recruiting violations.

The NCAA hit Ole Miss with sanctions in December following a lengthy investigation into the school under Freeze's watch.

Freeze is now facing a two-game suspension if he is hired as a head coach before November 30 due to NCAA infractions.

But Sankey, according to Al.com, did not want Freeze to work a prominent job in the conference this season. Like everything else, the effect of the consultation with the commissioner depends on the personalities involved.

Alabama will have another former SEC head coach on its staff this year. "If someone doesn't like the bylaws, go change your conference". It's possible he could land an analyst or consultant job, but sources have indicated he's reluctant to uproot his family from Oxford for that type of position. "That program will get a very determined, motivated, better coach Freeze if given a second chance".
