Ole Miss fired football coach David Cutcliffe on Wednesday. This comes on the heels of a 4-7 finish, Cutcliffe's first losing season in Oxford. In 2003, the Rebels were 10-3 and Cutcliffe was named SEC Coach of the Year. On Tuesday, Cutcliffe issued a cryptic statement which seemed to indicate that he was staying, but would make changes on his staff. Perhaps his bosses thought a fresh start was best for the Rebels. (You're wrong, Colonel Reb). The front-runner to replace Cutcliffe: Ousted Cleveland Browns coach Butch Davis, who rebuilt the U. of Miami's probabtion-ravaged program in the 1990s. Stay tuned ...
Doctor S would like to thank Jen for the tip. Keep up the good work!
Maybe the Rebs can pick up USM's defensive coordinator, Tyrone Nix. He'll be gone (hopefully) at year's end, too.
