Nutt set to interview at South Florida

Houston Nutt may be returning to the ranks of college head coaches.

Nutt is set to interview for the University of South Florida’s vacancy, a source told on Tuesday morning.

Nutt, 55, has 19 years of college head coaching experience at Mississippi, Arkansas, Boise State and Murray State. Nutt’s longest tenure was at Arkansas (1998 to 2007). He led the Razorbacks to a 75-48 record before resigning.

Nutt then went to Mississippi and enjoyed initial success with back-to-back 9-4 seasons. Nutt, though, was fired after the Rebels slipped to 2-10 in 2011.

Nutt spent last season as a college football announcer.

The Bulls are looking for a new head coach following the dismissal of Skip Holtz after a 3-9 campaign.
