OXFORD — Ole Miss will shuffle its defensive coaching staff in preparation for the Peach Bowl.Director of recruiting operations Corey Batoon will coach the Rebels’ safeties and nickel corners leading up to the Dec. 31 game against TCU, coach Hugh Freeze said Tuesday. Defensive coordinator Dave Wommack will shift from coaching the defensive backs to coaching the linebackers.The moves were made after linebackers coach Tom Allen accepted the defensive coordinator job at South Florida on Monday. Allen was at the Rebels’ practice Monday, but is expected to leave soon for his new job.Freeze said that Batoon will be given strong consideration to permanently replace Allen.Batoon’s background is in on-field coaching, having spent three seasons at Arkansas State with the cornerbacks, safeties and special teams. The final season was in 2011 with Freeze, who brought Batoon to Ole Miss in an staff position.Prior to Arkansas State Batoon spent 11 seasons as the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at Northern Arizona. Batoon came to NAU after a year at Montana working with the defensive line. Prior to that, he was special teams coordinator and secondary coach at Central Missouri State after two years at Saint Mary’s (Calif.) and a three-year stint at Pierce Junior College in Los Angeles.Peach BowlFreeze said Monday that because of the recruiting dead period (which runs through Jan. 14) replacing Allen is not a top priority. Because of prep for the bowl game and then the holidays, Freeze said he expects a hire to be made in early January.Hugh Freeze will take time in finding Allen’s replacement
