Houston Nutt was once loved at Arkansas. He was once loved at Ole Miss. Today he’s detested by many at both schools. Which means they’ll probably be tuning in to hear what he says when becomes a regular part of SiriusXM Radio’s College Sports Nation channel.
It was announced yesterday that Nutt — a three-time SEC Coach of the Year as the presser points out — will “host multiple shows each week,” and is making his debut today. Nutt’s comment:
“In my 30 years as a college football coach, I’ve experienced first-hand the extraordinary passion fans have for their favorite teams. You can hear that enthusiasm and dedication every day on SiriusXM College Sports Nation. I’m excited to be a part of it and I’m looking forward to talking with fans around the country about what’s on their minds as we approach another season.”
Nutt will join SiriusXM host Mark Packer for his morning show and host Jack Arute for his afternoon show, depending on the day.
Whether you like him as a coach or not, the Right Reverend’s personality should make him a good fit for national sports radio.
