Houston Nutt. Image via Wikipedia. South Florida fired its head football coach Skip Holtz on Sunday. The school isn't wasting any time in looking for a replacement  as it is reportedly set to interview former Ole Miss and Arkansas HC Houston Nutt as Holtz's replacement. Nutt led Arkansas to three SEC West titles. His stint at Ole Miss was less successful, ending in a 2-10 season. That's slightly worse than Holtz's 3-9 record this season. South Florida officials obviously hope its Arkansas Nutt they're getting instead of Ole Miss Nutt. (via SB*Nation)
