A little more on Lee | Ole Miss Sports

David Lee’s name had been rumored for offensive coordinator at Ole Miss before he was announced in the position yesterday. A few other tid-bits on Lee. …

– Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald wrote on Twitter that Lee was “far from safe” once Dan Henning was no longer the offensive coordinator with the Dolphins.

– Lee has been credited with helping develop a number of NFL quarterbacks, including Tim Tebow when the two were at the Senior Bowl last year. Darlington quoted Tebow in a story last March following the NFL combine. “I’ve learned a lot from Coach Lee,” Tebow said. “He’s a great coach. We worked a lot on different drops, on coming out of play actions, adjustments in plays they had. It’s a wonderful experience for me.”

– Lee called some plays for Nutt at Arkansas but was never considered the primary play-caller. Those close to the Arkansas program say Nutt’s only primary play-caller there was Gus Malzahn.
– One observer believes Nutt’s pursuit of Lee following the 2006 season caused Malzahn to leave for Tulsa as head coach.
– Lee had two stints with Nutt at Arkansas, 2001-2002 and 2007 but also coached with Ken Hatfield at Arkansas previously.
