Ole Miss named Jacob Peeler its wide receivers coach, head coach Hugh Freeze announced Wednesday.

The Kosciusko native served the last four seasons on the staff at Cal. He was a graduate assistant in 2013-14 before being promoted to assistant coach for inside receivers in 2015.

“Jacob has quickly developed a reputation as an elite recruiter and an outstanding offensive coach who relates well to his players,” Freeze said in a press release. “He is Mississippi born and bred and should be able to hit the ground running as we continue to elevate our program.”
