OXFORD, Miss. – A four-time conference coach of the year and 2019 national coach of the year, Chris Beard will bring his long run of success to Oxford and the SEC, as he has been named the 23rd head men's basketball coach at Ole Miss by Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics Keith Carter on Monday.

A public introduction will take place Tuesday at 5 p.m. CT at the Sandy and John Black Pavilion at Ole Miss. The event will be open to the public and featured live on The Paul Finebaum Show on SEC Network and streamed in its entirety on SEC Network+. Doors open at 4:30 p.m.

"We are excited to welcome Coach Beard and his daughters, Avery, Ella and Margo, to the Ole Miss family," Carter said. "We thoroughly evaluated a number of outstanding candidates, and there is no doubt Coach Beard is one of the top coaches in the nation. After conducting due diligence and speaking to a number of individuals on and off the court, it was evident he is the right person to guide our team to greatness.

You should read what happened. they both say he did not choke her and was merely defending himself when she attacked him. Why does she remain unarrested? Why is he still with a bitch tht would have him falsely arrested, costing him millions?
