Boone Still Under Fire At UM; Says There’s No Truth To Resignation Rumor

Will it be one, the other, or both? 

Pete Boone and Houston Nutt are both under fire in Oxford and at this point it’s questionable whether either man will remain in his current position past the fall. 

Rumors that Boone would step down grew so prevalent in the Magnolia State last night that Parrish Alford of The Northeast Mississippi Journal put in a call to the Ole Miss AD just to make sure his job status wasn’t changing.  When Boone called him back, he left this message:


“There’s absolutely no accuracy to the question you were asking me about (my) resignation.”


But the fan group “Forward Rebels” keeps turning up the heat.  Today they placed a new newspaper ad featuring the words “It’s time for a change, Ole Miss” just above a photo of Boone.

“Under Boone’s leadership, Ole Miss has routinely underperformed in the SEC,” the ad reads.  “Coaches have been fired.  A generation of athletes have come and gone.  But Pete Boone stays?  And continues to earn over $429,000 per year.  We at Forward Rebels believe THAT is unacceptable.  Ole Miss leadership must be held accountable.”

If you’re Boone and the natives are restless enough to place ads calling for your head, it’s doubtful that you’ll be able to hang on to Nutt for another year if the Rebels finish as poorly as they’ve started. 

How might UM’s AD buy himself more time?  Perhaps by hiring a Gus Malzahn or Mike Leach to excite Rebel fans.  Of course, what coach is going to walk into a situation where his boss is on the hot seat?

No matter how you slice it, Boone and Nutt are in for the fight of their lives over the next couple of months.

What happend to Houston Nutt?

remember when Jimmy Sexton was leaking rumors a few years ago every job opening and getting Nutt a pay raise?

It wasn't but 2 ago he was rumored for every job opening in the SEC... he got his big pay raise when Auburn hired Chizik, thats when Sexton leaked info that he was a candidate for the Auburn job, so Ole Miss gave him a raise and extension

Ole Miss is just a joke right now, Its hard to imagine how they fell so far so fast. Nutt was being touted as a great recruiter during those years too. I guess nothing lasts in the SEC, so you better take advantage of it while you got the chance

I have noticed the frustration of my Ole Miss friends lately. It's not a laughing matter. They really support their school but don't have much good to say about it's football program. I certainly don't know where the blame lies but "somethin needs fixin." When Boone attended a press conference for Nutt and stated that Ole Miss fans would see some changes fast, it became evident to me that someone was leaving. Now it looks like more than one person is on the way out. The "Forward Rebels" group doesn't appear to be made up of "hotheads".
