Matt Luke's contract details released by Ole Miss

Even after being named interim head coach at Ole Miss under the tumultuous circumstances of Hugh Freeze's exit, Matt Luke was not shy about saying it was his dream job.

It is relatively new territory for Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

The report initially surfaced Sunday that Luke would receive the full-time position after serving as the interim coach this season.

Luke was a co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach for Ole Miss the five previous season.

Of course, it's been one of the most tumultuous seasons in memory for coaches in the SEC.

Jeff Bezos Of Amazon Now Worth $100 Billion - Thanks To Black Friday
The Amazon founder is the newest member of the $100 billion club after increasing his fortune by $2.4 billion to $100.3 billion. Unlike Gates or Buffet, Bezos has neither pledged his wealth for charity nor has he done too much about it.

While addressing the team, he listed the characteristics he wanted in the school's next head coach. Some of these coaches have been around for a while and may have a little baggage.

Receiver A.J. Brown went to bat for Luke after the victory.

"Mississippi is not a stepping stone for me, this is where I want to be", an emotional Luke told his team. The details of a contract were then announced Monday with Luke and Ole Miss agreeing to a four-year deal.

Luke played his college football at Ole Miss, playing center for the Rebels from 1995 through 1998.
