Oakman had been accused of raping his girlfriend in April of 2016.
Emails show conflict between the athletics director and head coach at Southern Mississippi over the prospect of hiring ex-Baylor coach Art Briles.
Welcome the new Southern Miss offensive coordinator: Not Art Briles.
Hopson will not lose his job after a horrible week for him and the Southern Miss football program.
This latest report comes on top of Hopson's chastising the university over its Art Briles decision.
Art Briles interviewed for Southern Miss football's offensive coordinator position. Jay Hopson defended the coach though the school did not hire him.
Hopson says the disgraced former head coach 'personally committed no crime' and 'deserves a second chance.'
Fortunately, common sense has prevailed, although why the disgraced ex-head coach was interviewed at all is another question entirely.
