A Thaw Between Ole Miss And Brewer The Elder

With Gunter Brewer joining the Ole Miss football staff as Houston Nutt’s receivers coach/pass game coordinator/associate head coach, Kyle Veazey of The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reached out to Billy Brewer for a reaction.

As we mentioned yesterday, Brewer coached the Rebels from 1983 to 1993 before being ousted during an NCAA investigation into his program.  In 1999 he sued the University of Mississippi for breach of contract and eventually won $221,355 from the school.

So how does he feel about his son joining the staff in Oxford?

“My deal with Ole Miss is good,” the elder Brewer said.  “It got better with Houston.  He welcomed me.  It was a great relationship.  He made you feel warm, he made you feel welcome.  Just like anybody.”

(Sounds like Dateline’s Chris Hansen should have been on hand.)

Brewer said that Nutt has occasionally called him to ask a question or two.  “I enjoyed that.  I didn’t hang around.  I didn’t volunteer.  ‘If you want to talk, I’m here for you to talk.’  He’s done that.”

And as for that lawsuit… “That has nothing to do with Gunter Brewer. … No use in washing laundry that’s already been washed.”

Don’t you miss the days when SEC coaches talked like that?  Back before they all became CEOs?
