AP source: Nutt to stay at Ole Miss with extension

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi is working on a contract extension to keep Houston Nutt amid reports he's a top candidate at Auburn.

A person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press on Friday that Nutt is working out the extension with athletic director Pete Boone and the new deal will be announced as soon as it is complete. The person asked to remain anonymous because an announcement hasn't been made. Nutt signed a four-year, $7.4 million contract when he took over at Ole Miss last season after resigning at Arkansas.

The Birmingham News reported that Auburn was looking at Nutt to replace Tommy Tuberville. Nutt told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal and the Clarion-Ledger of Jackson he has had no contact with Auburn.
