CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) -Longtime Arkansas State coach Dickey Nutt has been hired as the new basketball coach at Southeast Missouri State. He joins a school that went 3-27 and is facing possible NCAA sanctions.
Athletic director John Shafer introduced Nutt at a news conference Thursday in Cape Girardeau.
Nutt spent 13 seasons at Arkansas State, where he was 189-186. He led the Red Wolves to their only NCAA tournament appearance in 1999. He resigned after going 9-17 in 2007-08. He did not coach this past season.
Southeast Missouri was winless in the Ohio Valley Conference and lost its final 19 games, the longest losing streak in NCAA Division I.
Nutt is the brother of Mississippi football coach Houston Nutt.
