The Sporting News reports this morning that Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt has been in contact with the athletic director at the University of Kansas to talk about their vacant head coaching position. If Nutt were to leave, would this mean and could this mean Kent Austin could be propelled into the head coaching position. If I'm not mistaken, his last head coaching gig was a successful one.
What makes the vacancy at Kansas interesting is that University of Buffalo coach and former Alouettes quarterback Turner Gill is also being talked about for the position. One of Gill's top assistants is another former Rider head coach---Danny Barrett.
