Khayat Backs Orgeron

The future of Mississippi coach Ed Orgeron has been called into question by fans and the media as he struggles to put a winner on the field.

Only one opinion really matters, however, and Ole Miss chancellor Robert Khayat leaves no room for interpretation about his friend's future with the Rebels.

Khayat said in a recent interview with The Associated Press that he's very high on Orgeron and very loyal and committed to him.

Love him or hate him, it's unlikely Orgeron will be given the quick hook by Ole Miss. The Rebels are 2-and-7 going into Saturday's homecoming game against Northwestern State, Orgeron's alma mater.

The Rebels are in danger of going winless in the Southeastern Conference for the first time since 1982 with league games left against No. 3 LSU and at Mississippi State.
