One of the most experienced coaches in college football could return to the sidelines in the near future. It’s been nearly eight years since Houston Nutt coached in the NCAA, but he’s eyeing a job that recently opened up.
Nutt spent time at Boise State and Murray State before making the jump to Arkansas. During his time in Fayetteville, he won 75 games and led the program to the postseason in eight different years.
He resigned from his position with the Razorbacks amid several controversies. Following his time at Arkansas, he quickly signed a deal to become the head coach at Ole Miss.
It should be noted that Nutt’s time with the Rebels also ended with rumors about recruiting violations.
There isn’t any indication that top programs in college football have interest in hiring Nutt, yet there is one job in particular that he’s targeting.
Brad Logan of the Clarion-Ledger is reporting that Nutt is interested in the head coach opening at UTSA.
Multiple sources confirm that former Arkansas and Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt has "a very high interest" in the head coach opening at UTSA.

Nutt currently works for CBS Sports as an analyst, but this latest report from Logan does hint at him wanting to return to coaching.
UTSA fired Frank Wilson after the team finished this season with a 4-8 record. The best season under Wilson came in 2017, when the Roadrunners won six games.
