Martin Schulz's social democrats offer Merkel a coalition lifeline

He was a four-year center for Ole Miss from 1995-98, and his father was a defensive back in the 1960s, while his brother was a quarterback for the Rebels from 1989-91.

With it still being unknown what the NCAA will decide, and other SEC jobs (Florida, Tennessee and Texas A&M) opening at various points in the fall, Ole Miss found itself in a tough position with regards to the coaching market.
