Mississippi AD: Football fans 'clearly frustrated'
OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi athletic director Pete Boone says "everyone who loves Ole Miss is clearly frustrated" about the progress of the football program.
Boone says he met with coach Houston Nutt on Sunday after the Rebels were embarrassed in a 30-7 loss to Vanderbilt and discussed the future of the program. The loss to the Commodores left the program in disarray and fans calling for Nutt's resignation.
Nutt is in his fourth season at Ole Miss. The first two seasons produced 18 combined wins and back-to-back Cotton Bowl victories, but since then it's been a disaster. The Rebels have lost nine of their past 10 Southeastern Conference games.
Nutt said Monday "there's no excuse" for his team's poor play.
Ole Miss hosts Georgia on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
