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.”
