JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -Houston Nutt wasn't out of a job for long: He was hired as Mississippi's football coach just hours after resigning at Arkansas.
Nutt agreed to a contract late Monday night, and replaces Ed Orgeron, who was fired Sunday after the Rebels lost to rival Mississippi State and finished 3-9.
The hiring of Nutt was confirmed by a person close to the program who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made.
Nutt resigned even though the Razorbacks upset then-No. 1 LSU 50-48 in triple overtime last week.
The school planned an announcement on its coaching situation later Tuesday.
