Once the news came out in a team meeting with Ole Miss players that Matt Luke was fired as head coach of the Rebels, it didn’t sit well with a group of them, including Jerrion Ealy and Tariqious Tisdale.

Athletics Director Keith Carter addressed the team on Sunday night in the Manning Center and opened it for questions, but shortly after the meeting started, a large group of players abruptly left the room, signaling their disapproval of the decision, the Daily Mississippian reported. Luke was on the road recruiting on Sunday afternoon when the news broke, reportedly at a recruit’s house, and got back to Oxford immediately, according to the players.
