The SEC is calling

NCAA Football: Houston at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Rich Rodriguez was abruptly fired by the Arizona Wildcats about a year ago amid sexual harassment and hostile work environment allegations from a former assistant.

Now, it appears as if he might be back in the coaching circuit mix, this time with an SEC program.

Rodriguez is currently in Oxford, Mississippi, interviewing with Ole Miss head coach Matt Luke for the offensive coordinator, per 247Sports and confirmed by Football Scoop. Ole Miss’ previous OC left for North Carolina to work under Mack Brown.

Rodriguez spent this past offseason in Tucson studying his football philosophies, as well as visiting other college football programs and friends.

During his six seasons at Arizona he led the Wildcats to a 43-35 record, including a Pac-12 South Championship and Fiesta Bowl berth, leading one of the top offenses and rushing attacks in the nation during his time.

Rich’s son, Rhett, will be a junior quarterback at Arizona in 2019, and his daughter, Raquel, a former cheerleader, will start a new position at news station KVOA in Tucson.
