"I'm not at liberty to do that", Freeze said.
When his contract was bought out at Ole Miss, he signed a separation agreement in November 2011 that he alleges in his lawsuit was violated.
Nutt filed a civil lawsuit against the University of MS and the Ole Miss Athletic Foundation on Wednesday, alleging breach of contract via defamation of character.
Ole Miss received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA in 2016 that alleged 13 rules violations, including nine that happened during Freeze's tenure.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze had little to say about the latest turn related to the on-going NCAA investigation into the football program when he met with local media prior to beginning his SEC Media Days rotation today.
"The first four years, I really thought we were relevant in the Southeastern Conference, and that is what I said from day one", Freeze said.
"I would love to share my options on it, but it's a legal case, and I just can't comment".
The lawsuit makes the hefty claim that Hugh Freeze, Ross Bjork, and Sports Information Director Kyle Campbell "reached an agreement in 2014 to carry out a carefully orchestrated misinformation campaign, the specific goal of which was to mislead the media, Ole Miss boosters, and potential recruiting prospects about the true nature of the matters that were being investigated by the NCAA".
Nutt's complaint says Ole Miss engaged in "a carefully orchestrated misinformation campaign ... to mislead the media, Ole Miss boosters, and potential recruiting prospects".
Specifics are given in which Freeze called reporters and spoke on the condition of anonimity to claim Nutt's staff was largely blame for the NCAA violations.
Freeze said he took responsibility for the ongoing NCAA investigation into the program, pointing out how the school self-imposed scholarship limitations and a bowl ban.
Wednesday was a chance for Ole Miss football fans to get a good laugh. Adversity tends to crumble people a part or brings guys together.
"I don't think I've spoken to him since I've begged him to keep me", he said, per theClarion Ledger. I have never been around a group of guys and coaches that have worked as hard as we have in the spring and summer.
