 JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -Saskatchewan Roughriders coach Kent Austin interviewed for the Mississippi offensive coordinator's job Wednesday.
The coach of the defending Grey Cup champions is an Ole Miss graduate and the second candidate to be interviewed for the job.
A Roughriders spokesman confirmed the interview. Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt is trying to replace David Lee. The offensive coordinator followed the new Rebels coach from Arkansas to Oxford, but had not yet signed a contract when Lee was whisked away by Bill Parcells to become quarterbacks coach for the Miami Dolphins on Monday.
The careers of Austin and Lee touched briefly at Ole Miss. Lee was the quarterbacks coach under Steve Sloan from 1978-82 and Austin was a quarterback in Oxford from 1981-85. Austin is the Rebels No. 3 career passing leader with 6,184 yards and was inducted into the Ole Miss Hall of Fame in 2000.
He was drafted in the 12th round by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1986 and joined the Roughriders a year later. He was the Grey Cup most valuable player after leading Saskatchewan to a league title in 1989 and earned a second Grey Cup with the British Columbia Lions in 1994. He retired two years later.
He entered coaching in 2003, helped the Toronto Argonauts to a Grey Cup as offensive coordinator in 2005 and took the Roughriders to the Cup in his first season as head coach last year.
Roughriders spokesman Ryan Whippler said Nutt contacted Austin while he was in his home state of Tennessee visiting family.
Nutt said Tuesday in an interview with The Associated Press that he would be conducting a nationwide search for his new offensive coordinator. He interviewed former Ole Miss assistant Hugh Freeze on Tuesday.
Lee served under Nutt at Arkansas for a season after coaching for then-Cowboys coach Parcells from 2003-06 as quarterbacks coach. Parcells resigned from the Cowboys after the 2006 season and was hired last week as Dolphins vice president of football operations. Though he has yet to hire a head coach, he has started assembling a staff.
In the meantime, Parcells has interviewed Cowboys assistant Tony Sparano, Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and former Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, who was fired along with the rest of the Baltimore coaching staff last week.
