Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze responded to Jim Harbaugh’s opposition of the NCAA’s satellite camp ban on Wednesday, saying that he supports the ban because it allows him to stay close to home.

“I will never apologize for wanting to be a good father. I miss enough volleyball games. That is a priority for me,” Freeze said on Mike & Mike. “But in all reality, schools that are coming down to do camps way outside of their region, they’re really coming for one or two kids. That’s the truth.”

In an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Michael Rosenberg that was published on Tuesday, Harbaugh criticized Freeze’s previous comments about spending too much time away from his family while traveling for football. 

“You’ve got a guy sitting in a big house, making $5 million a year, saying he does not want to sacrifice his time,” Harbaugh said. “That is not a kindred spirit to me. What most of these coaches are saying is they don’t want to work harder.”

On Mike & Mike, Freeze said he supported the ban, but hoped it could be amended to restrict only Power Five schools from attending satellite camps.
