Ole Miss Chancellor Jeff Vitter is resigning, according to sources. While a formal announcement is expected later Friday, news quickly spread across social media platforms.
Second consecutive failure of the Mississippi IHL for Oxford and @OleMissRebels. The removal of Dan Jones followed by the installation of Jeff Vitter. Get the @UMchancellor position correct…we deserve better than this consistent ineptitude. https://t.co/n0UbABpqZk

In all seriousness, I want to thank Vitter for his time at Ole Miss.
Now someone take this phone from my hands.

If this is true I’m interested to see how the student body reacts. Vitter has been vilainized by some for his removing of street and building names, putting sports “in their place” and the removal of the state flag from the state school of Mississippi. https://t.co/73I84LMwIU

Before everybody gets all excited about Vitter being gone just remember the same people that picked him will pick his successor.

I’m almost always against firing people. I hate the idea that firing someone automatically makes everything okay. I think you have to invest more into people when they’re struggling at their job.
I will pack up Jeff Vitter’s house and load the UHAUL by myself if I need to.
