The 2017 Ole Miss football season is just days away, and while it will be good to see actual football as opposed to the emotionally crippling parade of awfulness that has been Ole Miss’ offseason, one question still looms large: Who will be the head coach at Ole Miss in 2018?

Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork has promised to patiently conduct his search over the coming months, and he’s assured the Rebel faithful that all candidates will undergo a thorough vetting. After the last three coaching hires, Ole Miss fans may not be familiar with that process, but apparently Bjork intends to actually examine candidates’ qualifications and potential fit for the job before simply throwing millions of dollars at the first lunatic who expresses some interest in coming to Oxford. It’s refreshing, I know.

The bad news is that you’ve got weeks and weeks of terrible “_________ to Ole Miss” prognostications ahead of you. From out-of-the-loop national writers to the lowliest Mississippi State message board troll, people with bad opinions will be coming out of the woodwork over the coming weeks and months to make their picks for who will end up at Ole Miss. Not to worry, friend. This exclusive Ole Miss Coaching Search Cold Board will help separate the chaff from the wheat and will let you know exactly who won’t be Ole Miss’s football coach in 2018. We’ve reached out to all of our unnamed sources deep with the IPF* and compiled a comprehensive Cold Board for you, the discerning Ole Miss fan. Below you’ll find a detailed list of every candidate who doesn’t have the slightest chance in hell of ending up in the blue and red.
