Nutt denies web reports linking him to Colorado | Ole Miss Sports

Internet speculation linking Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt with the Colorado job has picked up steam this evening, some reports saying Nutt will be named the CU coach Monday.

A few minutes ago Nutt responded to a text message and said the reports were “not true.” Asked if he anticipated being the coach at Ole Miss next season, Nutt responded, “yes.”

Nutt has a news conference at Ole Miss set for 2 p.m. tomorrow. It was scheduled last week as a matter of closing the door on the 2010 season and looking ahead. Earlier this evening Ole Miss media relations sent a text message saying the nature of tomorrow’s press conference and team meeting are both “routine.”
