Houston Nutt’s Unemployment Lasts Approximately Two Hours

Posted in Gridiron at 9:47 am by

Though knocking off the no. 1 team in the land earned Houston Nutt a proposed two year extension as Arkansas head coach, it proved to be too little, too late — not with other suitors competing for Nutt’s services, anyhow.  Chances are very slim, by the way, that Mitch Mustaine will attempt to transfter to Ole Miss in the near future.  From the AP :

Houston Nutt wasn’t out of a job for long: He was hired as Mississippi’s football coach just hours after resigning at ArkansasNutt agreed to a contract late Monday night, and replaces Ed Orgeron, who was fired Sunday after the Rebels lost to rival Mississippi State and finished 3-9.

The hiring of Nutt was confirmed by a person close to the program who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made.

Nutt resigned even though the Razorbacks upset then-No. 1 LSU 50-48 in triple overtime last week.

    I’ve been waiting impatiently for our buddy Houston to get arrested for something in the hopes that someone will use the headline “Nutt Busted.” BTW, is this bloke any relation to Dicky Nutt? Now that, my friend, is a great name.

    The oldest of four Nutt boys, Houston is not the only family member carrying on his father’s coaching legacy. Dickey is the head basketball coach at Arkansas State while Danny was the Razorbacks’ running backs coach from 1998-2006. Dennis is an assistant basketball coach at Coastal Carolina.
    …
    His kids’ names are Houston III, Hailey, Hanna, and Haven.
    I just hope the last one is pronounced HAV-en
    …
    Any chance of Dave Mustaine using his remaining eligibility? (Apologies if this joke has been beaten to death)

    Hailey Nutt, Hanna Nutt and Haven Nutt. Three porn names if ever there were any.

    Rog – shame on you. Leave the kids alone – It’s enough that their family life has been disrupted.

    Sorry, I assumed those daughters were all adults.
