Batoon replaces Tom Allen for now and perhaps permanently

Corey Batoon will be at least a temporary replacement for linebackers coach Tom Allen, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said today.

Batoon coached defensive backs for Freeze at Arkansas State and has been an off-field recruiting assistant at Ole Miss.

He will coach safeties during bowl preparation and defensive coordinator Dave Wommack will coach linebackers.

Allen is leaving to become defensive coordinator at South Florida.

Freeze said Batoon “will get strong consideration as the permanent replacement.”
