Jon Gruden may not be the only big name changing gigs.
According to a report, Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt will become the next head coach at Colorado.
Nutt has been no stranger to coaching rumors before, as his name was linked to openings at Nebraska and LSU while he was at Arkansas. He later left the Razorbacks to take the job at Ole Miss.
Nutt, who has been said to be unhappy with Rebels athletic director Pete Boone, apparently has a relationship with former CU boss Bill McCartney. McCartney has expressed a desire to become more involved with the Colorado program again.
The Buffaloes have been looking for a new coach since dismissing Dan Hawkins recently, and bringing in a veteran coach certainly would stabilize the program as it prepares to move into the Pac-12 next season. Nutt has compiled a record of 97-64 in 13 seasons at Arkansas and Ole Miss.
