An anonymous poll conducted by AthleticDirectorU has ranked Ole Miss as the No. 11 athletic director job in the Southeastern Conference.

ADU polled a dozens of currently sitting athletic directors as well as executive-level administrators in the conference for this survey which was intended not to rank current success but to "provide detailed insights about the potential for success at each school."

"It’s imperative to note the Athletic Department Power Index is not intended or developed to analyze the performance or potential of the current Athletic Director at the respective institutions," the poll stated. "Rather, it is an assessment of the opportunity generally through the eyes of both peers and aspirants to the position were it to become available."
