Dear Quarterbacker,
Former Arkansas and Ole Miss Coach, Houston Nutt, will be our featured speaker this week. Nutt was a star football and basketball player growing up. He initially played at Arkansas, but transferred to Oklahoma State and played both sports there.
After graduation, Nutt was a grad assistant for Jimmy Johnson at Oklahoma State and then Lou Holtz at Arkansas. Nutt then returned to Oklahoma State as an assistant coach and mentored Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas during his time there.
After head coaching stints at Murray State and Boise State, Nutt became head coach of Arkansas in 1997.In the first six seasons, he led the Razorbacks to a bowl game in each year and averaged eight wins a year. Arkansas had up and down years for the next several years and Nutt eventually resigned in 2007.
In November of 2007, he was hired as head coach at Ole Miss. He started strong but ended with an overall record of 24-26 over four years. He is responsible for the SEC enacting the scholarship signing limits.
Nutt has recently been involved in a lawsuit against Ole Miss that has led to the ouster of Hugh Freeze.
Please come and enjoy Houston Nutt. He is full of energy and a great speaker. We look forward to seeing you there.
