Not only was it announced he would not be retained past this season, but his team was defeated handily by Louisiana Tech on Saturday.
Things won’t get any easier for Nutt and the Rebels this week as No. 1 LSU comes to Oxford. (November 15, 2011, Page 6)

Monday’s weekly press conference for Ole Miss football coach Houston Nutt had a much bigger audience than normal. Instead of questions about the Rebels’ next opponent, Louisiana Tech, Nutt gave an opening statement about his four years at Ole Miss and then took questions on why he thought he was not being retained as the program’s coach.
