Nutt Mentioned As Candidate
Shortly after Bill Parcells resigned as the Dallas Cowboys coach on Monday morning, Nutt's name was mentioned by several media outlets as a possible replacement. On ESPN2's Cold Pizza, sports analyst Skip Bayless and ESPN.com senior writer Pat Forde discussed Nutt as an early candidate for the Cowboys job. The Associated Press and The Fort Worth Star Telegram also listed Nutt among several coaches who could replace Parcells in Dallas. Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher, San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and Southern California coach Pete Carroll have also been mentioned as candidates to be the next Cowboys coach. Nutt was unavailable for comment Monday, and he didn't respond to a text message sent to his cell phone. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has had success hiring college coaches to run his team. He's also no stranger to the University of Arkansas, his alma mater. Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer, who each served as assistant coaches with the Razorbacks, won Super Bowls as the coach of the Cowboys.
