Report: Ole Miss to name Cal’s Jacob Peeler as its new WR coach


Ole Miss reportedly has found a wide receivers coach, with reporting that Jacob Peeler — who held the same position at California — is the Rebels’ newest assistant.

Peeler’s hiring comes a week after the Rebels lost receivers coach Matt Lubick to Baylor. Lubick, who spent about 10 days on Ole Miss’ staff, was hired as a co-offensive coordinator at Baylor.

Peeler had been at Cal for two seasons. Cal fired coach Sonny Dykes over the weekend.

Peeler is a native of Kosciusko, Miss., which is about 110 miles south of Ole Miss’ campus in Oxford. He began his coaching career in 2008 as a tight ends and assistant offensive line coach at Itawamba Community College in Fulton, Miss.

Peeler also has served as a graduate and quality control assistant at Louisiana Tech.

Ole Miss has yet to officially announce Peeler’s hiring.
