Kansas athletic director Lew Perkins best look elsewhere for his next head football coach.
Houston Nutt has reportedly said he "appreciates the interest Kansas showed in our staff" but he's staying put at Ole Miss.
Here's Nutt's full statement:
"I continue to appreciate the ongoing support of Chancellor Dan Jones and Athletics Director Pete Boone. We came to Ole Miss committed to building the type program that our fans deserve. Ole Miss is a great university and the quality of life in Oxford is the envy of others. I can't think of anywhere else we would like to be. There are so many positives here, and we're excited about the direction of the program. Our players are also excited and the response we are receiving from recruits and their parents is most gratifying. We appreciate the interest Kansas showed in our staff, but we are happy at Ole Miss and looking forward to the AT&T Cotton Bowl."
Are there any "big splash" candidates left on Perkins' list?
