It appears that Houston Nutt has resigned as head coach at Arkansas. A press conference has been called for 6:30 p.m. Monday to address "the future" of the Razorback football program. Nutt will be joined at the setting in the Broyles Center by Chancellor John White and athletic director Frank Broyles.
ESPN reported in early afternoon that Nutt had resigned with a settlement in the neighborhood of $3.5 million. Other sources thought the settlement was more in the neighborhood of $2 million, the amount waiting for Nutt in a deferred annuity had he stayed one more season.
Nutt left the Broyles Center on Monday afternoon amid reports that he had resigned as head coach at Arkansas after 10 seasons. Neither Nutt or his assistant coaches would confirm reports that he had resigned.
It also appears that Nutt is a strong candidate for the head coaching position at Ole Miss. The Rebels fired their head coach earlier in the weekend.
