Houston Nutt’s final game as the head coach of the Ole Miss football program is arguably the most important to his legacy. Coaches, outgoing or not, are remembered by how they finish a season, a career and how they fare against the team’s biggest rival.

It’s easy to see where things went wrong

COLUMN: It’s still hard to believe that Houston Nutt is out as Ole Miss’ football coach less than four years after he arrived in Oxford.

This was a man who filled up the Gertrude Ford Performing Arts Center on campus to hold his introductory press conference with media and fans.

An opportunity to return to the coaching ranks at the Division I level for David Saunders has left a void in Ole Miss’ football operations staff today.

Saunders, who served as the administrative operations coordinator under Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt, agreed to become the new cornerbacks coach/assistant recruiting coordinator at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette under coach Mark Hudspeth, who was hired to replace former coach Rickey Bustle earlier this month.
