BACK-TO-BACK COTTON BOWL CHAMPIONS (2009, 2010)

“My first game at what was then Hemingway Stadium was in 1960 when Ole Miss played LSU, and I had never been more excited than I was that day. Of course, the stadium is much larger and more impressive now than when I played. I love the on-campus experience at Ole Miss, starting with The Grove, the team taking the short walk to the stadium and the overall atmosphere of gameday.” - Archie Manning

Khayat; NCIS special agent James Reed; renowned Johns Hopkins esman and football analyst Archie professor and physician Alan Partin; former NFL star, national spokesman Manning; and many others, some of whom may be lesser known, but ut no less important in their communities and workplaces. “I am very proud to be associated with Ole Miss. I had a wonderrful time my four-and-a-half years there. I’m most grateful for the friends I made and the relationships that were built with my coaches, teacherss, the students and the family of Ole Miss. If I could do it over, I woould choose (Ole Miss) again 100 times. It was one of the greatesst experiences of my life.”

- Eli Manning Pro Bowl Quarterback, N.Y. Giants 2008 Super Bowl MVP

“My days as an Ole Miss Rebel football player were tremendous. As an NCIS Special Agent I have traveled and worked with many law enforcement counterparts nationally and internationally. As a student-athlete at Ole Miss, I met many people on and off the field who positively influenced my life. Those relationships helped me mature and grow professionally and prepared me to handle many challenges I now face on a daily basis.”

- James Reed NCIS Special Agent

“I will always be indebted to Ole Miss. The University and the Ole Miss family have provided me opportunities and experiences beyond my expectations. It was an honor and pleasure to represent this University - on and off the field. Most importantly, the lessons I learned in preparation, perseverance and execution are the tools that have directly contributed to my successes as an attorney. Thank you, Ole Miss, for allowing me to be a part of something special.”

- Jesse Mitchell Attorney in Jackson, Miss.

- Dr. Robeert C. Khayat Chancellor, Unniversity of Mississippi (1995-2009)

“While playing Ole Miss football for Steve Sloan in the early 80’s, I learned the importance of teamwork, my academic coursework and pursuit of perfection in everything I do. My experience at the University of Mississippi has served me well and helped lift me to the pinnacle of my medical profession.”

- Dr. Alan W. Partin Professor, Director of the Brady Urological Institute at Johns Hopkins University

“My time at Ole Miss from 1997-00 greatly prepared me for the military career I have now. The family experience and wealth of knowledge gained on and off the football field continue to shape the way I approach missions daily. What I learned and experienced with my brothers at Ole Miss has helped me keep myself and my soldiers alive through the toughest of times.”

- Major Sheldon Morris U.S. Army, HHT/6-9 CAV Troop Commander

“I believe it was meant for me to be a 49er, but I believe it all started with being at Ole Miss. I was really fortunate to be a Rebel. Like I say all the time, I wouldn’t want to have played at any other place than Ole Miss.”

- Patrick Willis 3-time Pro Bowl Linebacker, San Francisco 49ers 2007 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year

“I sincerely believe the reason for our success can be attributed to the family atmosphere surrounding our football program. The players do feel a real sense of family. They are invited into the homes of their coaches, and they become a part of those families. Everybody wants to belong to something, and Ole Miss is truly a home away from home.” - Houston Nutt “I love it here at Ole Miss. It’s just a great environment. It’s like a family reunion where everybody is just happy to see everybody. The coaches make you feel comfortable, and when you are comfortable you play better.” - Kentrell Kent Ke ntre rellll Lo LLockett ocke ooc ketttt

Rebel Family “Wh Patrick “When P t i k lleft ft hhome tto attend tt d Ol Ole Mi Miss, we hhadd th the comfort f t off knowing that he would be cared for as part of his new family family. That was never more evident than when Patrick lost his h brother. His Ole Miss family was there to provide the support he needed at his lowest point. At Ole Miss, family is not just a word. It is real.”

- Chris and Julie Finley Patrick Willis’ parents

“Five years ago we didn’t think Kentrell would end up at Ole Miss. They were at the back of the list until he took his visits. After he was coming back from his last visit at Alabama, he called up and said, ‘I’m going to be a Rebel.’ He followed God and his heart and it has been a wonderful decision. Being from Louisiana, our family took a lot of flack about Kentrell going to Ole Miss, but they didn’t understand what a wonderful place it is. It was overwhelming seeing him step off the bus for the first time in the Grove. It was a Mardi Gras-type atmosphere, and everybody was so friendly. We have met so many wonderful people at Ole Miss that have become great friends.”

- Kentrell Sr. and Andrell Lockett Kentrell Lockett’s parents

“We love Ole Miss, Houston Nutt and the superior education that our son is receiving. And of course we love The Grove. As hard as it is for our son to be eight hours away, we know he is well taken care of. We have three boys. Two of them played at SMU and then Gerald went to Ole Miss. In 20 years of being a football mom, I’ve known a lot of coaches from little league to the NFL. Coach Nutt is the first one that I have received a personal phone call from to let me know how my son Gerald was doing. He told me how much he liked and admired my son, and what a great job I had done raising Gerald. He went on to tell me that he was going to take good care of Gerald Gera d and that I need not worry about him m. That was a very special phone call andd one I will never forget. It made me feel like my kid was in the right place and that the coaches really care about him. There was one time when we haad a death in the family, and all the coacchhes were so supportive. Gerald couldnn’tt make it to the funeral, so Coach Shibbest invited him over to his house foorr dinner on the day of the funeral. TThhat warmed my heart heart. We feel so very blessed b that the Ole Miss coaches woulld take the time to be surrogate parents for our son.”

“We are very grateful to the coaches at Ole Miss for taking care of Dustin and helping him get an education. As parents, you always worry about your child, but the coaches at Ole Miss took care of Dustin and helped put our minds at ease.”

The Grove Regarded as one of the world’s top sporting traditions, tailgating on football Saturdays at Ole Miss is one of those activities that every sports fan should take the opportunity to indulge in at some point in their life. Ten acres of lush green grass, watched over by majestic oak trees in the middle of the Ole Miss campus, are transformed from a tranquil picnic spot into tailgating paradise when thousands of football fans crowd into every corner of the land. Weaving through the myriad of red and blue tents, one is bound to encounter a few of the most extravagant set-ups in all of tailgating - fine china, chandeliers, big-screen satellite TVs. Of course, many tents are a bit simpler, but the unique atmosphere still encourages sundresses and high heels for the ladies and coats and ties for the men. Food and drink are abundant. “Hotty Toddy” can always be heard chanted among the trees. Champions walk through it. There is nowhere else like it. It is ... The Grove.

Nation’s No. 1 Tailgating School (Sports Illustrated) Nation’s No. 2 College Football Tailgating Spot (ESPN) “The Holy Grail of tailgating sites” (The Sporting News) “The mother and mistress of outdoor ritual mayhem.” (New York Times) “The mecca of tailgating in American sports” (Columbia Missourian) “In Oxford lies the most magical place on all of God’s green, football-playing Earth: the Grove.” (SI on Campus)

“I still remember the first first time I came here on my official visit. Walking through thro The Grove, the whole atmosphere was just UNBELIEVABLE.” UNB BELIEVABLE.” ” Willis, - Patrick Patr Pa tric ick Wi Will llis, San Francisco 49ers Pro Bowl linebacker

Walk of Champions Rebel players and coaches have paraded through the Grove and been greeted by thousands of admirers two hours before each football game since 1983.

“I can say in definitive terms that there isn’t a better place to spend a college football Saturday than at The Grove, followed by an SEC battle at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.” - Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN

ROY LEE “CHUCKY” MULLINS July 8, 1969-May 6, 1991

“I’ve never been a quitter. It’s not in my heart to give up. I don’t think it should be in anybody’s heart. I may may give gi give ive out, outt, ou but I’ll never give up.” - Chucky Mullins

Chucky Mullins Courage Award Roy Leee “Chucky” Chucky Mullins was born on July 8, 8 1969, 1969 in Russellville e, Ala. After his mother’s death when he was in Russellville, th th grade d andd at his hi request Ch k was placed l d the seventh grade, request, Chucky under the guardianship of Carver and Karen Phillips. Chucky graduated from Russellville High School in 1988. He earned All-Conference, All-Area and All-State honors in football as a junior and senior. He was team captain and most valuable player on his high school team. He also earned three letters in football, basketball and baseball. Because of his athletic and leadership abilities, Chucky was awarded a four-year scholarship to Ole Miss, and he arrived on campus in the summer of 1988. He was redshirted in 1988 but later saw action as a “nickel” defensive back for the Rebels and was rapidly emerging as a defensive force in the Southeastern Conference. Tragically, his injury on Oct. 28, 1989, in the Homecoming game against Vanderbilt ended his football career and left him paralyzed. He was treated at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis until February 1990, when he was transferred to Spain Rehabilitation Center in Birmingham. Chucky’s battle with his physical disability and his undefeatable spirit changed the University of Mississippi.

accident, Chucky endured the For months after the tragic accident grueling challenges of rehabilitation. During the difficult time i Ch k ’ gritty i ddetermination i i andd positive i i spirit ii time, Chucky’s touched the lives of literally hundreds of people. More than a million dollars was raised for the Chucky Mullins Trust Fund. He was visited in the hospital and later at home by such stars as Walter Payton, Janet Jackson and President George Bush. Chucky’s accident and his unbroken spirit transcended football. The people of Mississippi, the South and the entire United States rallied around this remarkable young man.

“It is an honor to receive the Chucky Mullins Award and join such a great group of players. I just want to live up to Chucky’s legacy on and off the field.” 2010 Mullins Award Winner Kentrell Lockett When Chucky returned to Oxford in August 1990 to begin living in the specially-equipped house built by the Trust Fund donations, he announced a determination to return to Ole Miss and pursue a degree. Against all odds, in January of 1991, he did return to the classroom.

However, on May 1, 1991, as he prepared for class, he suddenly stopped breathing. Rushed to the hospital, he never regained consciousness and died five days later from complications resulting from a blood clot. While Chucky did not have a long life, it was a particularly special one. His teammates and coaches said Chucky was a teacher. He taught others how to live their lives to the fullest and how to maintain their focus on the truly important aspects of a precious life. In the state of Mississippi, Chucky Mullins will be forever young and never forgotten. In the spring of 1990, the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity at Ole Miss initiated the Chucky Mullins Courage Award to be given each spring to the Rebels’ most outstanding defensive player for the following football season. Recipients are presented the award at the Chucky Mullins Courage

Award banquet, with the proceeds from the banquet going to a special fund created to help Ole Miss students that are involved in serious accidents. Each year’s award recipient also has the honor of wearing a No. 38 patch on his jersey throughout the season. Prior to the retirement of Chucky’s number in 2006, the award-winning player wore a No. 38 jersey during his senior season. Defensive back Chris Mitchell was the first recipient in 1990. This year’s honoree is defensive end Kentrell Lockett from Hahnville, La. The other finalists were safety Johnny Brown, linebacker Jonathan Cornell, tackle Ted Laurent, tackle Jerrell Powe and linebacker Allen Walker.

Chucky Mullins’ #38 became the second Ole Miss number to be retired (the other is Archie Manning’s #18) on Sept. 3, 2006, during pre-game ceremonies for the season opener vs. Memphis. A monument in his memory was revealed on that day to hold up the bronze bust of Mullins’ likeness. Now, when players exit the tunnel on gameday, they must first pass the monument, and many also touch his head as they charge onto the field.

COACHES AND STAFF

HOUSTON NUTT | HEAD COACH 3RD SEASON | 18-8 (.692) RECORD AT OLE MISS | OKLAHOMA STATE | 1981 The Ole Miss football program sought a proven winner in a head coach and found that man and more in Houston Nutt, who was introduced as the Rebels’ 36th head coach on Nov. 28, 2007. After guiding Arkansas to three SEC Western Division titles and eight bowl berths in his decade in Fayetteville, Nutt immediately reversed the Rebels’ fortunes and has guided Ole Miss to success not experienced in Oxford in 40 years. Nutt’s first two years at the helm have produced consecutive nine-win seasons for the first time since 1961-62 and back-to-back January bowl victories for the first time since 1960-61. Including his decade of success at Arkansas, Nutt has guided his teams to 10 bowl berths in the past 12 seasons, the most of any SEC Western Division coach during this span. Nutt’s squads have recorded eight or more wins in eight of those 12 campaigns and nine or more victories in six of those seasons in the SEC. Rising as high as No. 4 in the national rankings in 2009, Nutt’s Rebels knocked off No. 8 LSU, Tennessee and Arkansas en route to a second straight berth in the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, in which Ole Miss prevailed over No. 18 Oklahoma State 21-7. The 2009 campaign saw Nutt earn his 50th career coaching victory in SEC play (51-45). He is just the 14th conference coach all-time to reach that mark and only the third active coach. With a 93-56 overall mark as an SEC coach, Nutt ranks 18th all-time in the league in coaching victories and behind only Steve Spurrier among active coaches. Nutt was also bestowed with one of his greatest honors last year, as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes named him the 2009 FCA Grant Teaff Coach of the Year Award recipient. The award recognizes a football coach who exemplifies Christian principles and who is involved in FCA. The award is also based on the success/performance of the coach’s team that year. In his first season in Oxford, Nutt led one of the greatest turnarounds in school history, reviving a Rebel squad that was coming off four straight losing seasons and a 3-8 cam36 | REBEL FOOTBALL 2010

paign with no conference wins in 2007. With a 9-4 record (5-3 in the SEC), it marked the team’s best improvement from one season to the next since legendary Ole Miss Coach John Vaught’s debut in 1947. Projected to place fifth in the SEC Western Division in the preseason, Nutt’s first Rebel unit finished second in the West, ended the season on a six-game win streak and earned a No. 14 final national ranking. Nutt’s efforts earned him SEC Coach of the Year honors (SEC Coaches and The Touchdown Club of Atlanta) for the third time in his decorated career and AFCA Region Coach of the Year accolades for the fifth time. In his two seasons in Oxford, Nutt has continued his reputation as a giant killer, as his Rebels have registered a 5-3 record against ranked teams and a 3-2 mark against top-10 teams, including a 25-23 victory over eighth-ranked LSU in 2009. The 2008 Ole Miss squad knocked off three top-20 foes away from Oxford, including the defending national champion in No. 18 LSU and the eventual title holder in No. 4 Florida. The third win was a resounding 47-34 defeat of No. 8 Texas Tech in the 2009 Cotton Bowl. The upset over the Gators - their lone blemish of the season - provided Nutt his fifth win against a top-five opponent as a head coach. In all five wins, Nutt’s team entered the game unranked, and four of the wins came on the road. Also the 2006 SEC Coach of the Year, Nutt has recorded 21 victories over ranked opponents, including the 50-48 overtime win at eventual national champion and No. 1-ranked LSU in his final game as Arkansas mentor. He has had 25 victories while his own team was ranked. Nutt, who was also named SEC Coach of the Year in 2001 and National Coach of the Year in 1998, guided Arkansas to three final national rankings, including a final ranking of No. 15 in 2006. In his 10 seasons in Fayetteville, Nutt was the secondlongest tenured coach in the SEC. Arkansas went 75-48 during his time, including 42-38 in SEC play. In the previous eight years prior to Nutt’s arrival, Arkansas was 38-51 with

two bowl bids. In UA’s first six years in the Southeastern Conference (1992-97) prior to Nutt’s return to Fayetteville, the Razorbacks totaled only 19 league victories. After that, Nutt led the Hogs to four nine-win seasons, including a 10-4 mark in 2006, and SEC Western Division championships in 1998, 2002 and 2006. The Razorbacks earned trips to the Citrus (1999), Cotton (2000, 2002 & 2007), Las Vegas (2000), Music City (2002), Independence (2003) and Capital One (2006) bowls. Under Nutt, the Razorbacks went 53-17 at home, which was the second-most home victories in the SEC during that span. Nutt and his staff have produced 20 All-America selections, 85 All-SEC selections, a Walter Camp Player of the Year winner (Darren McFadden, 2007), a two-time Doak Walker Award winner (McFadden, 2006 & 2007), a Rimington Trophy winner (Jonathan Luigs, 2007), a two-time Heisman Trophy runner-up (McFadden, 2006 & 2007), two Outland Trophy finalists (Michael Oher, 2008 & Shawn Andrews, 2003) and a Lombardi Award finalist (Andrews, 2003). In UA’s first six seasons in the SEC, the Razorbacks averaged three All-SEC picks and had no All-Americans. Nutt’s teams have had 96 games televised since 1998, an average of eight per season. In the eight years prior to Nutt’s arrival, the Hogs appeared on television 36 times, an average of 4.5 games per year. Nutt’s offensive approach has made the Ole Miss rushing attack rise from one of the SEC’s worst to one of the best. In 2008, the Rebels recorded their most rushing yards since 1990 and ranked second in the conference after ranking 11th just one year prior. After averaging 186.5 yards per game with 21 TDs in year one under Nutt, Ole Miss continued its potent rushing offense with a 183.6 clip and 22 touchdowns in 2009. Arkansas led the SEC in rushing five of Nutt’s last six years there and ranked among the nation’s top 15 five times. Nutt’s teams recorded four of the top eight season rushing totals, five of the top nine season passing totals, the top four total offensive averages, five of the top eight season scoring totals and the top seven touchdown passing seasons in

Off the field, Nutt has also given back to the community in a variety of charitable causes. In addition to receiving the 2009 FCA Coach of the Year award, he and his wife Diana committed a gift of $100,000 to the University of Mississippi in April 2009 to create scholarships for deserving studentathletes and to go towards the Indoor Practice Facility. Houston and Diana are strong supporters of the Boys & Girls Club and welcomed 50 of the Oxford Club’s children and their parents as special guests for the 2009 Northern Arizona game. In the summer of 2009, Nutt took part in the Second Annual Coaches Tour presented by Under Armour, traveling to military bases throughout the Middle East to visit U.S. Troops. Along with head coaches Mack Brown (Texas), Troy Calhoun (Air Force), Rick Neuheisel (UCLA) and Tommy Tuberville (Texas Tech), Nutt headed to the gulf on a USAF KC-135 Refueling Tanker and visited more than 12,000 troops and traveled 20,000 flight miles. The coaches participated in meet-and-greets at various bases and coached flag football teams made up of servicemen and women. The head coaches also hosted a symposium where audience members had the opportunity to ask questions. Also in 2009, Nutt received the Award of Merit from representatives from the National Water Safety Congress and Sardis Lake. He was recognized for his part in helping produce several public service announcements about the importance of wearing a life jacket. *** Success is nothing new to the Little Rock, Ark., native. Nutt has compiled a career record of 129-78 (.623) in 17 seasons as a head coach including stops at Murray State, Boise State, Arkansas and Ole Miss. When Nutt was introduced as Arkansas head coach on Dec. 10, 1997, it would have been difficult for anyone to envision the immediate, positive impact that he had on a program, a university and a state. Taking the reins of a proud program that had faltered in back-to-back 4-7 seasons, Nutt faced the daunting task of restoring the excitement and passion in Razorback football. Nutt made an immeasurable impact on the Arkansas football program, but his commitment to enhance the program was not limited to the playing field. Nutt created a family atmosphere for the student-athletes who chose to come to Fayetteville and now to Oxford. While his on-field accomplishments speak for themselves,

school history. Defensively, Nutt’s squads have ranked among the NCAA’s top 30 in rushing defense four times, in passing defense three times and in total defense six times. In his first year in Oxford, Ole Miss dramatically jumped to No. 2 in the SEC in rushing yards allowed from No. 11 in 2007. In fact, Nutt’s Rebels finished fourth in the nation in rush defense and tied for first in tackles for loss. Ole Miss remained among the NCAA leaders in TFLs again in 2009 at No. 11, while improving in pass defense from 63rd in the nation to 15th. Nutt’s latest Rebel defense also ranked 11th in pass efficiency defense, 14th in the country in sacks and 15th in scoring defense. Nutt was only the third head coach in Arkansas history to lead the Hogs to bowl games in each of his first six seasons. Nutt joined former UA leaders Lou Holtz and Ken Hatfield in accomplishing that feat. Nutt has also shown the ability to prepare athletes for the professional level as evidenced by the 41 NFL Draft selections since 1998. He has helped eight former Rebels hear their names called, including two first-rounders for the first time in school history with Michael Oher (Baltimore) and Peria Jerry (Atlanta) in 2009. Fourteen more Rebels have signed free agent contracts the past two years. Nutt also tutored a pair of first-round picks in 2008 and six total draftees. Former Hog Darren McFadden was the fourth overall selection (Oakland), while backfield mate Felix Jones was taken at No. 22 (Dallas) to run the Razorbacks’ total to six first-rounders in five years. In 2004, six former Razorbacks were chosen in the NFL Draft, including first-round selections Shawn Andrews (Philadelphia) and Ahmad “Batman” Carroll (Green Bay). Quarterback Matt Jones (Jacksonville) made it yet another first-round draft pick under Nutt when he was taken with the 21st overall choice in 2005. Three former Nutt pupils inked NFL contracts in 2006, and in 2007, a total of 13 Razorbacks signed professionally, including four draft picks and nine free agents. Defensive end Jamaal Anderson (Atlanta Falcons) went in the first round. Nutt also enhanced the academic success of his players with dozens of student-athletes graduating before their athletic eligibility expired and 175 SEC Academic Honor Roll selections, including 22 in 2009. A total of 74 Razorbacks were named to UA’s Academic Honor Roll (3.0 grade point average or better) during the 2005 and 2006 seasons.

it is his investment in the lives of his players that sets him apart. He and his staff personally monitor class attendance and visit players in their apartments and dormitory rooms at night. Nutt consistently makes decisions with the best interests of his program and student-athletes in mind. While wins and losses are easily calculated, it is Nutt’s commitment to the academic success of his student-athletes that will continue to pay dividends for years to come. His philosophy has proven to be a recipe for success in the rough and tumble world of SEC football. Once courted by Frank Broyles as a star quarterback out of Little Rock’s Central High School, Nutt first thrilled Hog fans when, as a high school senior, he signed with Broyles over Paul “Bear” Bryant and Alabama. He was the last player to sign a letter of intent to play for Broyles before the legendary coach retired after the 1976 season. With Ron Calcagni sidelined by an injury, Nutt started four games as a true freshman in 1976. He also lettered for Arkansas’ basketball team that year, a squad that finished 26-2 and won the Southwest Conference championship with a perfect 16-0 league mark under Coach Eddie Sutton. Recruited as a drop-back passer, Nutt spent the 1977 season as a backup in the option-oriented offense instituted by Lou Holtz, Broyles’ successor at the helm of the UA football program. He decided to transfer to Oklahoma State where he redshirted and then played two years at quarterback for the Cowboys. He also spent two seasons with the OSU basketball program. Nutt earned his degree in physical education in 1981. Following his graduation, Nutt remained at OSU as a graduate assistant for head coach Jimmy Johnson. In 1983, he returned to Arkansas as a graduate assistant under Holtz. His first full-time position came at Arkansas State in the spring of 1984, but Nutt never worked a game in Jonesboro. Instead, Nutt returned to Oklahoma State, this time to be a receivers coach, in August of 1984. He remained in Stillwater for six seasons, working extensively with quarterbacks and receivers. He was named offensive coordinator following the 1989 season. Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders and All-American Thurman Thomas both played for the Cowboys during Nutt’s tenure. Nutt made the trek back to Fayetteville in 1990 to serve as wide receivers coach under Jack Crowe. During his three seasons on campus, Nutt quickly gained a reputation as an aggressive recruiter while he was establishing excellent

Murray State recognized his abilities and hired him as head coach in 1993. Nutt guided the Racers to steady progress with 4-7 and 5-6 marks in his first two seasons. In 1995, the program took off. The Racers went 11-1 in 1995 and won the Ohio Valley Conference with a perfect 8-0 mark. They scored a schoolrecord 421 points and had the most improved record in NCAA Division I-AA football. Their league championship was the school’s first since 1986. Nutt was named OVC Coach of the Year and The Sports Network/Eddie Robinson National Division I-AA Coach of the Year. In 1996, the Racers posted an 11-2 record, including a perfect 8-0 mark in winning their second consecutive league title. MSU won its first I-AA playoff game in school history while eclipsing the school scoring record set just the season before. Nutt was again named OVC and Regional Coach of the Year. Nutt’s accomplishments didn’t go unnoticed. Boise State, in just its second season of Division I-A football, called on Nutt to take over a fledgling program that was coming off a dismal 2-10 record. In fact, Sports Illustrated rated Boise State 112th out of 112 teams in Division I-A football. With what most observers agreed was a limited talent

pool, Nutt managed to guide the Broncos to a 5-6 record in his first campaign. Nutt’s squad held a lead against Wisconsin in the final minute of play at Madison, Wisc., before the Badgers escaped with a win. The Broncos did, however, upset archrival Idaho on its own home field to end the 1997 season. After a successful season at Boise State, Nutt found himself in the running for the top job at Arkansas. The first candidate interviewed, he waited a week to learn his fate before hearing the job was his. Once he arrived in Fayetteville, he took the state by storm. As he recruited student-athletes, he also re-recruited fans who had grown apathetic during a listless decade of Hog football. Many who had stayed away were rejuvenated by Nutt’s enthusiasm. Fans were not the only ones attracted to Nutt’s refreshing approach. Picked to finish last in the SEC West, the Razorbacks exploded out of the gates, winning their first eight games. Arkansas had top-ranked Tennessee on the ropes at Knoxville, Tenn., before an untimely fumble allowed the Volunteers to escape on the way to a national championship. The Razorbacks finished 9-3 and won a share of the SEC Western Division title. The Hogs made their first ever trip to the Florida Citrus Bowl and concluded the season with their first top-20 poll finish (16th) in nine seasons. For his efforts, Nutt was named Football News’ National Coach of the Year. In 1999 the Razorbacks became the Western Division favorite because of an unusually large senior class. The Hogs had trouble on the road throughout the campaign, but finished in the manner of legends, defeating No. 3 Tennessee and No. 12 Mississippi State on consecutive weekends to earn a spot opposite long-time rival Texas in the Cotton Bowl. Nutt’s well-prepared team handed the Longhorns a 27-6 defeat in front of a packed house that included more than 40,000 cardinal-clad Hog fans. For the first time in its illustrious history, Texas was held to negative rushing yards. Once again the Hogs finished in the top 20 in the final polls, and Nutt’s status in the eyes of fans was raised to an even higher level. In the 2000 campaign, Nutt faced his toughest challenge yet, taking on a daunting schedule without the services of the top career passer (Clint Stoerner) and receiver (Anthony Lucas) in school history. From literally the first day of workouts, Nutt and the Razorbacks faced more than their fair share of adversity and injuries. Nine players were lost for the season to injury, including the top three tailbacks listed on the preseason depth chart. In addition, dozens of other players missed practice and game time with various ailments.

JIMMY JOHNSON Head Football Coach | Dallas Cowboys (1989-93) | 1992 & 1993 Super Bowl Champions Miami Dolphins (1996-99) “Houston Nutt is one of the finest coaches in America. I watch a lot of college football and Houston has a reputation of always fielding one of the hardest working teams while placing a major emphasis on special teams. He’s an outstanding recruiter and an ambassador with such passion and energy for football. More importantly, if I had a son that was going to play college football, I would want him with Houston Nutt, because of his values, integrity and caring.” ELI MANNING Quarterback | New York Giants |2008 Super Bowl MVP “I was very excited about Coach Nutt coming in. I thought he was a great addition to the Ole Miss family. He’s a guy that understands SEC football and what it takes to win. I think our program is on the rise. We have some great kids and great players. It’s just a matter of time. We are headed in the right direction.”

DARREN MCFADDEN Running Back | Oakland Raiders “Coach Nutt is a great guy and one of the greatest motivators I’ve been around. He really cares for his players, and I loved playing for him.”

MICHAEL OHER Offensive Line | Baltimore Ravens “In only one year of playing for him, Coach Nutt helped make me 10 times the person and player I was. He’s the type guy who gives you confidence to succeed, and he helped us believe in ourselves. Coach Nutt helped make our senior year really special, and I’m glad I came back to Ole Miss to enjoy it with my teammates.”

COACHES AND STAFF

Despite all the misfortune and distractions, Nutt rallied his team to back-to-back wins over No. 13 Mississippi State and No. 24 LSU to secure yet another winning regular season and a bowl game. In 2001, the Razorbacks stumbled to a 1-3 start, including three-straight losses in league play. Nutt and the Hogs rebounded to win six of their final seven regular-season games, including wins over conference divisional leaders in consecutive contests. Arkansas topped No. 9 South Carolina, 10-7, before downing No. 17 Auburn, 42-17. The Hogs won their way back to Dallas for a New Year’s Day meeting with defending national champion Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl. The 2002 season started impressively with convincing wins over Boise State and South Florida. After a home loss to Alabama and a road defeat at the hands of Tennessee in six overtimes, the Razorbacks’ hopes for a division title looked bleak, but once again Nutt rallied his team down the stretch. Five straight wins, including road conference wins at South Carolina and Mississippi State, gave the Hogs a chance for a share of the SEC Western Division crown. Trailing nationally ranked LSU with less than a minute to play, quarterback Matt Jones found DeCori Birmingham in the back of the end zone for a 31-yard touchdown pass, a share of the SEC Western Division title and a ticket to the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta, Ga. Arkansas made its second appearance in the league championship game and capped its season in the Music City Bowl. The Razorbacks wasted little time getting noticed in 2003. Arkansas topped No. 5 Texas, 38-28, in a nationally televised showdown at Austin in the second game of the season. Arkansas vaulted into the national polls at No. 14, marking the highest debut of any team since the poll was expanded to 25 teams in 1989. Two weeks later, Arkansas rallied for a 34-31 double-overtime win at Alabama to keep the momentum going. After suffering a trio of heartbreaking conference games, Arkansas salvaged its season with a historic 71-63 seven-overtime win at Kentucky. The Hogs

COACHES AND STAFF

tied their own NCAA record for overtime periods set in 2001 at Ole Miss. The memorable win ignited a streak that saw the Razorbacks win four of their last five games including a 27-14 win over Missouri in the Independence Bowl. Arkansas mounted another late-season run in 2004 before coming up just shy of extending its bowl streak to a school record seven-consecutive seasons. With a new quarterback, the Razorbacks missed out on a bowl bid in 2005, but showed great improvement down the stretch. UA led the SEC in rushing for the third time in four years, won two of its last three and suffered its last three losses by a combined nine points. The Hogs were back in business in 2006. After a seasonopening loss, Arkansas reeled off 10 straight wins, including wins over No. 2 Auburn, No. 13 Tennessee and No. 22 Alabama, and won the Western Division title. UA had chances to win but came up short against No. 4 Florida in the SEC Championship game, 38-28, and in the Capital One Bowl against No. 6 Wisconsin, 17-14. Darren McFadden led the SEC and set a school record by running for 1,647 yards and 14 touchdowns. He won the Doak Walker Award as the country’s top tailback and finished second in Heisman Trophy balloting. Nutt was named SEC Coach of the Year by the SEC coaches, the Associated Press and the Little Rock and Atlanta touchdown clubs. Also a national coach of the year finalist, away from the field he was recognized as the 2006 Easter Seals Arkansan of the Year. Much like the nine prior, Nutt’s final campaign with the Razorbacks displayed the determination of his teams. After a 3-3 start that saw a three-point loss at Alabama and a two-point setback to No. 22 Auburn, Arkansas rallied with wins in five of its last six games en route to earning a Cotton Bowl berth. His coaching finale with his homestate team epitomized the heart of Nutt’s Razorbacks. A huge underdog in Death Valley, Arkansas marched into Baton Rouge and battled past the nation’s top-ranked team and eventual BCS champion LSU in a 50-48 triple-overtime classic. It was Nutt’s seventh OT game with the Hogs, posting an amazing 6-1 record. *** Nutt is quick to credit his upbringing for laying the foundation for his success. His parents, the late Houston Sr. and Emogene, spent 35 years teaching young people at the Arkansas School for the Deaf in Little Rock. His father, a 2001 inductee into the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame, also served as athletics director and head basketball coach. The oldest of four Nutt boys, Houston is not the only family member carrying on his father’s coaching legacy. Dickey spent 13 seasons as the head basketball coach at Arkansas State and is now the head coach at Southeast Missouri State, while Danny was the Razorbacks’ running backs coach from 1998-2006 and is currently Ole Miss’ Assistant Athletics Director for Player Development. Dennis was the head basketball coach at Texas State for six years and is now a scout for the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats. The Nutt coaching foursome was featured in an article in Sports Illustrated in 1999. Houston Nutt has proven true to his family’s rich coaching heritage: a heritage that is centered on commitment, enthusiasm and a passion for people. He has impacted his players’ lives and revitalized tradition-rich programs in both Arkansas and now Ole Miss. Born Oct. 14, 1957, Nutt and his wife Diana, who also graduated from Oklahoma State, have four children: Houston III, twins Hailey and Hanna, and Haven.

Houston Nutt spent a week in the Middle East during the 2009 summer visiting nearly 12,000 troops. He participated in meet-andgreets at various bases, as well as coached flag football teams made up of servicemen and women. Nutt also helped host a symposium where audience members had the opportunity to ask questions.

KIM DAMERON ASSISTANT COACH SAFETIES | 3RD SEASON

In his 20-plus years in the coaching ranks, Kim Dameron has helped build some of the top-ranked defensive units in college football. Having served on previous staffs, Houston Nutt welcomed a successful and familiar face to his first Ole Miss staff on Dec. 4, 2007, naming Dameron assistant coach for safeties. In 2009, Dameron’s unit was one of the toughest to pass against in the nation. Led by free safety Kendrick Lewis, Ole Miss ranked No. 11 in the NCAA in pass efficiency defense and No. 15 in pass defense. Under Dameron’s watch, Lewis earned All-SEC second team honors and became the sixth Rebel all-time to lead the team in tackles in consecutive years. Lewis ranked 10th in the SEC in passes defended and 20th in tackles. In his first season in Oxford, Dameron helped lead a Rebel defense that improved from 12th in the SEC to fifth in total defense and from 11th in the league to fifth in scoring defense. Dameron tutored safeties Lewis and Jamarca

Sanford, both of whom finished in the top 16 in the SEC in tackles. Sanford was selected in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings, while Lewis was taken by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2010 Draft. Before arriving in Oxford, Dameron spent the previous three seasons as defensive coordinator at LouisianaMonroe. In 2007, he helped ULM become bowl eligible for the first time since it made the jump to Division I-A in 1994 and end the season winning five of its last six games, including a 21-14 victory at Alabama. During his brief tenure in Monroe, the Warhawks had six All-Sun Belt honorees on defense, including recent NFL Draft fifth-round pick Kevin Payne. The ULM defense was one of the stingiest in the Sun Belt in 2006, allowing the fewest points in the Sun Belt. The defensive unit also ranked third nationally in turnovers gained and ninth in interceptions. Dameron first worked alongside Nutt in 1983 as a graduate assistant under Lou Holtz at his alma mater, Arkansas, after earning his degree. Dameron was a fouryear player for Holtz from 1979-82 at defensive back and wide receiver. As a Razorback, he participated in four bowl games, including the 1979 Sugar Bowl, and was named Southwest Conference Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against Texas A&M in 1979. Dameron continued his coaching career at Missouri State, managing the defensive secondary and special teams from 1986-91. The Bears were the 1989 and 1990 Gateway Conference champions. The 1989 squad was an NCAA quarterfinalist, while the 1990 squad advanced to the NCAA first round of the I-AA playoffs. After spending 1992 as the defensive secondary coach at UNLV, Dameron rejoined Nutt as the defensive coordinator at Murray State from 1993-95. The Racers won the 1995 Ohio Valley Conference championship. That year MSU was nationally ranked third in total defense, second in pass efficiency defense, 10th in rushing defense, and sixth in

scoring defense. He coached first team All-American defensive back William Hampton. Dameron moved on to Cincinnati in 1996 to take a position as the defensive secondary coach. The 1996 squad ranked 13th nationally in total defense and 14th in pass efficiency defense. In 1997, he was promoted to defensive coordinator. The Bearcats won the 1997 Humanitarian Bowl, defeating Utah State. That season the defense was ranked fifth nationally in rushing defense and 33rd in total defense. In 1998, he added special teams and academic liaison duties. Four former Bearcats under Dameron’s tutelage went on to the NFL. He took a break from coaching in the college ranks as a defensive secondary coach for the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL in 1999. Under his tutelage, Toronto ranked first in the CFL in total defense, scoring defense and passing defense, and ranked second in rushing defense. Corner Adrion Smith was a first team All-CFL pick. Dameron returned to college in 2000 at Eastern Illinois, where he served as defensive coordinator for the firstround playoff squad. EIU finished the season ranked No. 15 in I-AA. The Panthers finished the 2000 season ranked 27th in the nation in total defense, while pass efficiency defense finished ninth nationally. Dameron then moved on to be defensive coordinator at Stephen F. Austin, and success immediately followed. In 2002 and 2003, the Lumberjacks were ranked in the top10 nationally for pass efficiency defense. The 2003 squad was also ranked 29th nationally in scoring defense and led the Southland Conference in scoring defense and pass efficiency defense, and ended up second in rushing defense and total defense. Dameron worked directly with special teams and the secondary, including 2003 Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Year and AFCA AllAmerican free safety Brent Hafford. A native of Rogers, Ark., Dameron and his wife, Debbie, have one daughter, Krystle, who lives in Omaha, Neb.

ASSISTANT COACH WIDE RECEIVERS | 3RD SEASON

Houston Nutt welcomed a former pupil to his first Ole Miss staff when he announced the addition of Ron Dickerson, Jr., on Dec. 4, 2007 as wide receivers coach. In 2009, Dickerson coached a pair of record-setting Rebels in Shay Hodge and Dexter McCluster to first team All-SEC honors. Hodge became the first player in Ole Miss history to top 1,000 yards receiving (1,135) and led the SEC in both yards and catches (70), while ranking third in the conference with eight TD receptions. He finished as the Ole Miss all-time leader in receiving yards. A first team All-American all-purpose player, McCluster became the first SEC player ever with 1,000 yards rushing and 500 yards receiving in the same season. He ended his career No. 2 on the all-time Ole Miss all-purpose yardage list. McCluster went on to be drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

RON DICKERSON JR. BREAKDOWN

In his first season with the Rebels, Dickerson mentored a Rebel receiving corps that hauled in a total of 16 TD passes. Hodge led that group with eight TD receptions, which was also tied for first in the SEC. Mike Wallace turned in all seven of his TD catches in the last five games of the season. Three receivers — Hodge, Wallace and McCluster — were honored as All-SEC performers by various outlets. Wallace led the SEC and ranked third in the nation in yards per catch (20.1), ranked third in the league in allpurpose yards (133.6 ypg) and ranked sixth in receiving yards (784). Hodge was eighth in the league in receiving yards (725) and in receptions (44), while McCluster finished seventh in the conference in all-purpose yards (98.5 ypg). Wallace was a third-round pick by Pittsburgh in the 2009 NFL Draft. Before coming to Ole Miss, Dickerson coached the previous three seasons at Louisiana-Monroe, where he served as defensive backs and assistant head coach in 2007. In his final year in Monroe, the Warhawks became bowl eligible for the first time since they made the jump to Division I-A in 1994 and ended the season winning five of their last six games, including a 21-14 victory at Alabama. Before moving to the defensive side, Dickerson had spent two seasons tutoring the ULM running backs, including 2006 All-Sun Belt first-teamer Calvin Dawson. Dawson became the Warhawks first 1,000-yard rusher since Bryant Jacobs in 2002. Prior to joining the ULM staff, Dickerson worked three seasons at Missouri State, where he coached running backs and special teams, in addition to serving as the team’s NFL liaison. Dickerson guided Bears tailback Cody Pratt to back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons,

including the second-best rushing season in MSU history with 1,223 yards and 11 rushing touchdowns in 2003. Dickerson held positions with professional teams prior to his time at MSU. He worked in 2001 as an offensive and special teams intern with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and in 2000 as running backs and special teams coach with the XFL Las Vegas Outlaws. Collegiately, Dickerson was running-game coordinator from 1997-2000 at Alabama State, spent one season as wide receivers coach at Temple and served as director of football operations in both assignments. Dickerson played professionally from 1993-96 for the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL, and the Scottish Claymores of NFL Europe. He is a 1996 graduate of the University of Arkansas and played four years as a running back and wide receiver (1989-92) with Nutt as his position coach with the Razorbacks. His tenure featured a pair of bowl appearances. Dickerson’s father, Ron Dickerson, Sr., was a long-time college and professional football coach, including a total of seven years as the head coach at Alabama State and Temple. Dickerson, Jr., is the founder and president of R.U.N.T. - Recognizing Undeveloped Natural Talents, a youth organization designed to improve opportunities for young people in and out of athletics. Dickerson and his wife, Kendreah, have two daughters, Kristen and Ashten, and a son, Keagan.

MIKE MARKUSON ASSISTANT COACH | CO-OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR OFFENSIVE LINE | 3RD SEASON

Houston Nutt has had only one offensive line coach in his 17 seasons as a head coach, and that post has remained the same at Ole Miss. Mike Markuson, who is considered one of the nation’s top offensive line coaches, also served as the Rebels’ running game coordinator in 2008 and 2009 before being named co-offensive coordinator in January 2010. Markuson’s line ranked second in the SEC (14th in the nation) in fewest sacks allowed in 2009 (17) and was fourth in the conference in 2008 (20), after Ole Miss finished ninth the previous year. Since his arrival, he has tutored a pair of first-team AllAmericans in tackle Michael Oher in 2008 and guard John Jerry in 2009. Oher became the fifth Rebel to win the Jacobs Blocking Trophy, as the SEC’s best blocker, and he was taken with the 23rd overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens. Jerry was taken in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Miami

Dolphins. Dexter McCluster had a record-breaking year running behind Markuson’s line in 2009, posting the second-highest rushing total in school history with 1,169 yards and earning first team All-America honors. It marks the ninth time a Markuson line has produced a 1,000-yard rusher. McCluster ranked fifth in rushing in the SEC (89.9 ypg) and sixth in allpurpose yards (132.1 ypg). He also set a pair of school records with 282 yards rushing and 324 all-purpose yards against Tennessee. Under Markuson’s watch in 2008, the Rebels finished second in the SEC in rushing (186.5 ypg), marking the seventhstraight season a Markuson-coached unit finished in the top three of the SEC in rushing. In Markuson’s decade at Arkansas, no other Southeastern Conference team was more effective at running the ball than the Razorbacks. In 2003, Markuson added the duty of running game coordinator, and the Hogs topped the SEC in rushing in four of the five campaigns under his watch. The 2007 season saw the Razorbacks lead the SEC and end the season fourth in the nation in rushing offense with 286.54 yards per game. Additionally, Arkansas ranked second in total offense (450.0) and third in scoring offense (37.31) in the SEC while sitting at No. 17 and No. 13, respectively, nationally in each category. Under Markuson’s tutelage, center Jonathan Luigs captured the Rimington Trophy, awarded to the outstanding center in college football, and was named a first team All-American by The Sporting News and Rivals.com. Luigs also earned a share (Alabama’s Andre Smith) of the Jacobs Trophy, given annually to the league’s top blocker becoming the first Razorback since Shawn Andrews to win that award. Luigs helped pave the way for 37 100-yard rushing games in 36 career games, including a school-record 17 100-yard performances in 13 games as a senior. Luigs and guard Robert Felton were named to the Coaches All-SEC first team while tackle Nate Garner and guard Mitch Petrus earned secondteam honors. Felton also earned second-team All-America honors from Rivals.com. Also under Markuson’s watch, Darren McFadden (1,830) and Felix Jones (1,162) each rushed for over 1,000 yards for the second-straight year, the 12th and 13th such seasons in school history. Seven of those 1,000-yard efforts came in the last six years with Nutt as head coach and Markuson in charge of the line. During the 2007 season, the McFadden-Jones duo earned 100 yards or more in the same game six times. McFadden was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year and earned consensus first-team All-America honors, several national player of the year accolades and a second-consecutive Doak Walker Award. He also finished as the Heisman Trophy runner-up. Not only did Markuson’s offensive line create lanes for the Razorback running game, it also kept rushers away from the Hog quarterbacks in 2007. The Hogs finished the season fifth nationally allowing only 13 sacks, which equated to just one sack per game for Razorback opponents. The 2006 season was another banner year for Markuson’s unit. Arkansas led the SEC, ranked fourth nationally in rushing offense (228.5), 29th in total offense (378.0) and 31st in scoring offense (28.86). Markuson’s line ranked second in the nation in fewest sacks allowed (.64) and opened the gates for 1,000-yard seasons by McFadden and Jones. Arkansas featured three first-team All-SEC performers from Markuson’s offensive line in Luigs, Tony Ugoh and Zac Tubbs, while Stephen Parker was named second-team all-conference. The 42nd pick in the second round of the 2007 NFL draft, Ugoh was distinguished as a second-team All-American by CollegeFootballNews.com, and Luigs was an Associated Press third-team All-American and a finalist for the Rimington Trophy.

Markuson helped the Razorbacks also top the SEC in rushing in 2005, 2003 and 2002, while the 2004 squad finished second despite the loss of all six starters. The 2003 Arkansas rushing attack ranked fifth nationally, and Andrews was an AllAmerican tackle and an Outland and Lombardi Trophy finalist. With 24 years of collegiate coaching experience, including two as an offensive coordinator, Markuson began his coaching relationship with Nutt at Oklahoma State where he was a graduate assistant in 1987 and 1988 while Nutt was the receivers coach. The two were reunited in 1993 when Nutt was named head coach at Murray State and brought Markuson in to serve as his offensive line coach. They’ve been together since, including the 1997 season at Boise State where Markuson served as Nutt’s offensive coordinator. A native of Farmington, Minn., Markuson began his coaching career at Farmington High School – his prep alma mater – as the school’s defensive line coach in 1983. He began his collegiate coaching career in 1984 with a two-year stint as the defensive line coach at South Dakota State, where he earned his master’s in physical education in 1986. After spending the 1986 season as the defensive line coach at his collegiate alma mater – Hamline University in St. Paul, Minn. – Markuson began his two-year graduate assistantship at Oklahoma State. While in Stillwater, he helped the Cowboys to a 35-33 win over West Virginia in the 1987 Sun Bowl and a 62-14 win over Wyoming in the 1988 Holiday Bowl behind five touchdowns and 222 rushing yards by Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders. In 1989, Markuson served as a graduate assistant at Notre Dame under former Arkansas head coach Lou Holtz. That Fighting Irish team posted a 12-1 record and finished No. 2 in the final Associated Press rankings after toppling Colorado in the Orange Bowl. Markuson landed his first full-time collegiate coaching position in 1990 when he was named the offensive line coach at Austin Peay. He then served as the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Alabama A&M during the 1991 and 1992 seasons. Markuson was a three-year football letterman at Farmington High School where he served as team co-captain and earned all-conference honors as a senior. He went on to Hamline where he was a four-year starter at defensive tackle and a two-time honorable mention All-Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection for the Pipers. He was also team co-captain as a senior. Born June 15, 1961, Markuson is married to the former Dottie Bryant. The couple has a daughter, Joy Noel, and a son, Elliot Bryan.

Former Southern Miss player and assistant coach Derrick Nix joined Houston Nutt’s first Ole Miss staff on Jan. 2, 2008 as running backs coach. In 2009, Dexter McCluster had a record-breaking year under Nix’s watch, becoming the first player in SEC history with 1,000 rushing yards (1,169) and 500 receiving yards (520) in the same season. The first-team AllAmerica and first-team All-SEC selection recorded the second-highest rushing total in school history and set a pair of school records with 282 yards rushing and 324 all-purpose yards against Tennessee. McCluster went on to be drafted in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. In his first season with the Rebels, Nix helped tutor a running attack that ranked second in the SEC in rushing with a 186.5 yards per game average. Using a balanced attack, the Rebels featured three rushers that piled up at

least 500 yards rushing in McCluster (655), Cordera Eason (647) and Brandon Bolden (542). McCluster was also named a second team All-SEC selection as an allpurpose player by the Associated Press. At Ole Miss, Nix has been reunited with his brother, Tyrone, who serves as the Rebels’ defensive coordinator. Before arriving in Oxford, Derrick Nix spent 2007 in the NFL as offensive assistant and quality control coach for Bobby Petrino’s Atlanta Falcons. Nix, one of the best-known players to ever wear a Golden Eagle uniform, began his four-year stint on the USM sidelines as a defensive graduate assistant in 2003. The following year, Nix was promoted to tight ends coach before being appointed to the running backs coaching position, where he spent two years. In 2006 under Nix’s direction, the Southern Miss running backs ran for 2,378 yards and scored 23 touchdowns, the first time the Golden Eagles ran for over 2,000 yards since 1987. True freshman Damion Fletcher, who earned first-team All-Conference USA honors and Freshman All-American honors, ran for 1,388 yards and scored 11 touchdowns, the second most yards in a season in school history. Fletcher set the freshman rushing record at Southern Miss and for Conference USA, and he was also named a finalist for the Conerly Trophy, signifying the top player in the state of Mississippi. In 2005, Nix got career-best years from youthful players Larry Thomas and Cody Hull. Thomas posted three 100-yard rushing performances, while Hull started the final two games of the year and recorded his first 100-yard rushing outing in the New Orleans Bowl with 161 yards on 37 carries, setting the Bowl record and the Southern Miss all-time bowl record. Hull’s 37 carries tied for the fourth most in school history, matching Nix’s own 37-carry performance against Nevada in 1998. As the Golden Eagles’ tight ends coach in 2004, Nix’s crew, used primarily as blockers in the offensive scheme, was successful. A three-time all-conference selection, Nix was a record-setting running back throughout his Southern Miss playing days and was named to the USM “Team of the Century.” He recently became one of only five players in the history of the football program to become a member of the Southern Miss Legends Club.

Nix was the first Golden Eagle ever to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his freshman and sophomore campaigns and the only Southern Miss and C-USA player ever to rush for 1,000 yards or more in three seasons. His career achievements at Southern Miss also included being the C-USA Freshman of the Year and a first team Freshman All-American in 1998. A sprained ankle, along with a kidney problem, forced Nix to sit out a year and a half, before returning for a successful senior season in 2002, which earned him an invitation to the Senior Bowl. After successful kidney transplant surgery in June 2003, Nix began his coaching career as a graduate assistant for the Golden Eagles.

“Tyrone Nix is one of the up-and-coming, bright defensive coordinators in America,” said Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt when he selected Nix to serve that position on his first Rebel staff on Dec. 11, 2007. While also coaching the linebackers, Nix was promoted to Assistant Head Coach in January 2010. Under the direction of Nix, the Ole Miss defense has led the Southeastern Conference in tackles for loss in each of his two seasons and tied for the nation’s lead in 2008. The unit also led the league in sacks in 2008 and finished second in 2009. In a 2008 shutout of Mississippi State, the Rebel defense posted a school-record 11.0 sacks and 15.0 tackles for loss. Nix has helped the Rebels show an improvement in pass efficiency defense from No. 12 in the SEC the season before he arrived to No. 3 in the conference and No. 11 in the nation in 2009. The Rebels have also improved in pass defense from 52nd in the NCAA in 2007 to 15th in 2009. Ole Miss has continued to rise in scoring defense

ASSISTANT COACH DEFENSIVE LINE | 6TH SEASON

On January 16, 2009, Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt added a 15-year SEC coaching veteran to his staff with the hiring of Terry Price as the Rebels’ defensive line coach. In his first season back in Oxford, Price led an attacking Rebel defensive line that helped Ole Miss rack up 96 TFLs and 36 sacks, ranking in the top two in the SEC and 11th and 14th in the nation, respectively. Price’s defensive line keyed a Rebel defense that finished fourth in the SEC and 15th nationally in scoring defense (17.7 ppg) and fourth in the league and 21st nationally in total defense (314.7 ypg). Price mentored defensive tackle Jerrell Powe, who notched 12.0 TFLs and earned second team All-SEC honors from the Associated Press. Meanwhile, defensive ends Emmanuel Stephens and Marcus Tillman tied for 11th in the SEC with 5.5 sacks each, and defensive end Kentrell Lockett totaled 10.0 TFLs and 13 QB pressures.

This marks Price’s second stint in Oxford, as he also coached defensive ends for the Rebels from 1995-98. Since his departure, Price held that same post for Auburn from 1999-2008. Under Price’s watch, Auburn’s defensive line topped the SEC in sacks in 2005. That season included an 11-sack game against rival Alabama. Auburn ranked sixth nationally in scoring defense in 2005, was seventh in 2006 and sixth in 2007 in the same category. Price’s defensive ends were a part of a Tiger defense that led the nation in scoring defense and was fifth in total defense in 2004. Among Price’s past pupils is Quentin Groves, the alltime Auburn career leader in sacks and a two-time all-SEC selection. Antonio Coleman (2008), Marquies Gunn (2005), Stanley McClover (2004, 2005), Reggie Torbor (2003) and Marcus Washington (1999) were also All-SEC honorees under Price. Five of Price’s defensive ends were NFL draft picks between 1999 and 2007. Former Rebel Derrick Burgess (New England), Torbor (Buffalo) and Groves (Oakland) are among the current NFL players coached by Price. In addition, Price helped recruit to Auburn current Arizona Cardinal linebacker Karlos Dansby; Tampa Bay Buccaneer running back Cadillac Williams (2004 AllAmerican; 2005 NFL Rookie of the Year), Atlanta Falcon cornerback David Irons and New England Patriot cornerback Jonathan Wilhite. As an honorable mention All-American defensive end at Texas A&M, Price helped lead the Aggies to Southwest Conference titles in 1986 and 1987. He was a 10th-

round draft pick of the NFL’s Chicago Bears and played there in 1990 and with the Miami Dolphins in 1991. After receiving a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M in 1992, Price was a graduate assistant coach at his alma mater before working as defensive line coach and strength coach at Western Kentucky in 1994 before moving on to Ole Miss. The Atlanta, Ga., native is married to the former Kenya Hodges, who is an Ole Miss graduate. The couple has two sons, Alexander and Devin.

DAVE RADER

ASSISTANT COACH | CO-OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR QUARTERBACKS | 1ST SEASON

A veteran offensive coach with an immense understanding of the quarterback position; that’s what Houston Nutt wanted, and no one fits that bill better than Dave Rader, who was named Ole Miss’ co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach on Feb. 1, 2010. Rader, who returned to collegiate coaching after three years in private business, brought a wealth of experience to Nutt’s staff, having served nine years as an assistant coach and 12 years as a head coach. This marks Rader’s fourth stint in the Southeastern Conference, most recently on Mike Shula’s Alabama staff from 2003 to 2006. Rader was head coach at Tulsa from 1988 to 1999 where he posted a 49-80-1 mark in 12 seasons. He guided the Golden Hurricane to the Independence Bowl in

1989 and the Freedom Bowl in 1991. His 1991 team was ranked 21st nationally, and he was selected as Kodak Region 4 Coach of the Year and a finalist for National Coach of the Year. While head coach at Tulsa, he produced four All-Americans, three first-team Academic All-Americans and 11 NFL draft picks. Rader began his coaching career at Alabama, as one of the first coaches hired by Ray Perkins in 1983. The two had been together with the New York Giants when Perkins was head coach and Rader a quarterback. While serving on that staff, the Tide went 22-12-1 and played in the Sun and Aloha Bowls. Rader then moved to Mississippi State under Rockey Felker where he spent the 1986 season as offensive coordinator and running backs coach. He moved to Tulsa, his alma mater, in 1987 as assistant head coach in charge of quarterbacks under George Henshaw. A year later he was appointed head coach and spent the next 12 seasons at Tulsa. Following the 1999 season at Tulsa, Rader worked in private business in Tulsa for four years before returning to Alabama in 2003. Born in Wichita, Kan., Rader graduated from Rogers High School in Tulsa, where he was a football and baseball standout. He played collegiately at Tulsa and was the Golden Hurricane starting quarterback in 1977 and 1978.

He threw for 2,674 career yards and guided Tulsa to a 9-2 record in 1978, passing for 1,683 yards and 14 TDs. He was selected in the 11th round of the 1979 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers but was later picked up by the Giants. A former board member of the FCA, Big Brothers & Sisters and Heritage Family Services, Rader has served on the American Football Coaches Association’s Football Issues and Ethics committees.

CHRIS VAUGHN ASSISTANT COACH | RECRUITING COORDINATOR CORNERBACKS | 3RD SEASON

Houston Nutt added a familiar face to his first Rebel staff in Chris Vaughn, who was announced on Dec. 12, 2007 as Ole Miss’ cornerbacks coach and recruiting coordinator. In 2009, Vaughn’s unit was one of the toughest to pass against in the nation. With corners Marshay Green and Cassius Vaughn, Ole Miss ranked No. 11 in the NCAA in pass efficiency defense and No. 15 in pass defense. Overall, the Rebels finished fourth in the SEC and 15th nationally in scoring defense (17.7 ppg) and fourth in the league and 21st nationally in total defense (314.7 ypg). In his first season with Ole Miss, Vaughn helped coach a Rebel defense that improved from 11th in the league in scoring defense to fifth and from 12th in total defense to fifth. As cornerbacks coach, he saw the Rebels intercept 16 passes as compared to eight the previous season. In the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, the Ole Miss secondary helped limit Texas Tech All-American Michael Crabtree to just 30 receiving yards, while Green earned Defensive MVP honors.

As recruiting coordinator, Vaughn helped assemble a 2009 signing class that was ranked 18th in the nation by Rivals.com, which also named Vaughn one of the top 25 recruiters in the country. The Rebels’ 2010 class earned even higher praise, tabbed No. 15 by Scout.com. Vaughn has participated in several programs held by the NCAA for aspiring head coaches, including the 2009 NCAA Minority Coaches Forum, the NCAA Football Coaches Academy and the NCAA Football Coaches Expert Academy. He also took part in the NFL’s Minority Internship with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2009 and with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2006. Vaughn served on Nutt’s Arkansas staff for nine seasons, including four as recruiting coordinator. On the field, Vaughn’s coaching responsibilities with the Razorbacks included the outside linebackers (200004), the outside linebackers and strong safeties (200103) and all safeties (2005, 2007). He spent the 2006 season as the director of on-campus recruiting. Among his pupils at Arkansas were Tony Bua, a fifth round NFL Draft pick of the Miami Dolphins, Vickiel Vaughn, a seventh round pick of the San Francisco 49ers, and Matt Hewitt, who signed a free agent contract with the Buffalo Bills. In 2003, Vaughn helped guide a unit that helped Arkansas finish fifth in the Southeastern Conference in total defense and fourth in passing defense. The Razorbacks also ranked third in pass efficiency defense. As outside linebackers coach, Vaughn was instrumental in developing Bua into an All-SEC performer. Bua earned All-SEC honors in 2001, 2002 and 2003, and ended his career as Arkansas’ all-time leading tackler with 408 stops. In 2001, Vaughn helped Arkansas’ defense rank second in the SEC in the red zone by allowing teams to score 68.3 percent of the time, and third in the league and 30th nationally with a plus-five turnover margin. Vaughn

also helped coach a 2000 defensive unit which led the SEC and was 12th nationally in total defense by allowing just 292.1 yards per game. Vaughn began his Arkansas career as a graduate assistant on the 1999 squad, working with the defense. He helped direct a swarming defense that limited Texas to minus-27 yards rushing in a 27-6 Razorback victory in the 2000 Cotton Bowl. Vaughn landed his first full-time coaching position less than a week after the Cotton Bowl win over Texas, joining former UA defensive coordinator Keith Burns at Tulsa as the Golden Hurricane’s linebackers coach on Jan. 3, 2000. Vaughn’s tenure at Tulsa, however, lasted less than six weeks. When a full-time slot opened on the Razorback staff, Nutt lured Vaughn back to Fayetteville on Feb. 17, 2000, in time to prepare for spring practice. One of the first players with whom Nutt made an inhome visit after his hiring at Murray State in 1994, Vaughn went on to earn four letters as a linebacker at MSU. He played his first three seasons for the Racers under Nutt and was a member of Murray State teams that claimed back-to-back Ohio Valley Conference titles and made consecutive NCAA Division I-AA playoff appearances in 1995 and 1996. Vaughn earned All-OVC honors as a senior in 1997, totaling 103 tackles, including six quarterback sacks and 10 stops for lost yardage. He earned his bachelor’s degree in advertising with a minor in art from Murray State in 1998. A native of Tallahassee, Fla., Vaughn was an all-state linebacker, state wrestling runner-up and 4A state weightlifting champion at Godby High School. Born July 24, 1976, he is married to the former Marquette Foster and they are the parents of Christopher Matthew Vaughn II, Cienna Marquette and Camryn McNeil.

coach (1988-89) and then as the defensive coordinator (1989). A native of Conway, Ark., Ealy returned to the University of Central Arkansas in a full-time coaching capacity in 1990. He spent seven seasons at UCA with stints as the secondary coach (1990-94), linebackers coach (1995-96) and defensive coordinator (1990-96). In his first three years at UCA, the Bears won three conference titles and the 1991 NAIA national championship. Ealy joined Nutt’s coaching staff at Boise State for the 1997 season. He worked with the Broncos defensive backs before accompanying Nutt to Arkansas in 1998. Ealy was a two-time honorable mention All-American and all-conference wide receiver at Central Arkansas before injuries prevented him from finishing his collegiate career. He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from UCA in 1982 and a master’s in secondary administration of supervision and leadership at UCA in 1987. One day after the Rebels’ Cotton Bowl victory over Texas Tech on January 3, 2009, Ealy married the former Gloria Smith of North Little Rock.

DANNY NUTT

ASSISTANT ATHLETICS DIRECTOR FOR PLAYER DEVELOPMENT 3RD SEASON Danny Nutt joined his brother Houston Nutt’s first Ole Miss staff as Assistant Athletics Director for Development and is in his third year with the Rebels. Danny has assisted his oldest brother for 14 years since joining his staff at Murray State for the 1994 season and the Arkansas staff on Dec. 11, 1997. He spent nine seasons as the Razorbacks’ running backs coach before stepping down prior to the 2007 season with health concerns. During Nutt’s tenure, Arkansas backs posted five 1,000-yard rushing seasons including 1,647 yards from Doak Walker Award winner and Heisman Trophy runnerup Darren McFadden and 1,168 yards from first team All-SEC selection Felix Jones in 2006. Nutt’s backs helped Arkansas lead the SEC in rushing for the fourth time in five years in 2006 and ranked No. 4 in the nation with 228.5 yards per game. In 2005, McFadden ran for 1,113 yards to rank fourth in the league while another freshman All-American, Jones, ran for 626 and ranked 10th. McFadden was named first team All-SEC, the SEC Freshman of the Year and a freshman All-American. Jones was named a first-team AllAmerican as a kick returner. Nutt helped Arkansas rank second in the SEC and No. 22 in the nation in 2004 by rushing for 187.4 yards per game. De’Arrius Howard, DeCori Birmingham and Peyton Hillis combined for 1,225 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2004. Birmingham signed with the New England Patriots. In 2003, tailback Cedric Cobbs led the SEC in rushing with a 110.0 yards per game average to become the first Razorback to top the conference in rushing. Cobbs was a OLEMISSSPORTS.COM | 51

fourth-round selection by New England in the 2004 NFL Draft and finished his career as the school’s third-leading rusher with 3,018 yards. In 2002, under Nutt’s guidance, Arkansas running backs did not have a fumble during the regular season and SEC Championship Game. The Razorbacks also led the SEC in rushing yards per game (218.9) behind AllSEC tailback Fred Talley. Nutt’s 2001 rotation of Talley, Cobbs and Brandon Holmes produced a total of 1,279 yards and 14 touchdowns, while Birmingham and Mark Pierce added another 166 yards and four TDs. The long line of talented backs Nutt has mentored reaches back to his early coaching years at Murray State, where he tutored two Racer running backs to 1,000-yard rushing seasons. Derrick Cullors tallied a school-record 1,765 yards on the ground in 1995, followed in 1996 by Anthony Downs’ 1,160-yard rushing season. Upon his return to Arkansas in 1998, Nutt coached the tailback tandem of Chrys Chukwuma and Madre Hill to a total of five games with 100 or more rushing yards – three by Chukwuma and two by Hill. In 1999, Cobbs, Chukwuma and Michael Jenkins each broke the 100-yard rushing barrier in a game with Cobbs going for 107 yards in the Razorbacks’ 28-24 upset of No. 3 Tennessee. With 21 years of coaching experience, Nutt developed a reputation as a hard worker both on the recruiting trail and on the practice field. Never was this determination more evident than when he was hospitalized and underwent a delicate surgical procedure to stop bleeding from his brain stem just days before the Razorbacks faced Michigan in the 1999 Comp USA Florida Citrus Bowl. Nutt endured an arduous rehabilitation and a relapse that forced him to miss spring drills in 2000 before returning to the sidelines for 2000 pre-season practice. Nutt began his coaching career at Arkansas where he helped the Razorbacks to three straight bowl appearances as a graduate assistant during the 1986, 1987 and 1988 seasons. After making his full-time coaching debut as the receivers coach at Appalachian State in 1989, Nutt joined the staff at Arkansas Tech, serving as the quarterbacks, running backs and receivers coach at the Russellville school from 1990 to 1993 before joining his brother’s Murray State staff. Nutt landed his first fulltime Division I-A job when he followed Houston to Boise State for the 1997 season before returning to his alma mater for the 1998 season. An all-state prep quarterback at Central High School in Little Rock, Nutt was also a member of a state championship basketball team at CHS. He began his career on the college gridiron at Central Arkansas. As a sophomore in 1982, Nutt was the Bears’ starting quarterback and passed for 1,092 yards during UCA’s first season under head coach Harold Horton, who now serves as vice president of The Razorback Foundation, Inc. Nutt later transferred to Arkansas where as a senior in 1984 he passed for 520 yards and four touchdowns while helping the Razorbacks to the 1984 Liberty Bowl.

Nutt is third-born of four brothers (Houston, Dickey and Dennis Nutt), all of whom are collegiate coaches. Nutt’s older brother Dickey is the head basketball coach at Southwest Missouri, while younger brother Dennis is a scout for the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats. Born May 7, 1961, Nutt is married to the former Carla Carlton. The couple has four daughters – Dallas, and triplets Ashley, Brenna and Caylan.

SEASON OUTLOOK

RebelutioN YOUNG REBELS STRIVE FOR THIRD-STRAIGHT JANUARY BOWL WIN When looking back at Houston Nutt’s first two seasons at the helm of the Ole Miss football program, it’s easy to understand why long-time followers of the Rebels just might recall the days when legendary coach Johnny Vaught roamed the sidelines. After all, Nutt’s first two years have produced consecutive nine-win seasons for the first time since 1961-62 and back-to-back January bowl victories for the first time since 1960-61. Those milestones came when Vaught’s teams were marching to what was then a national-record 15 consecutive bowl games. Vaught’s Ole Miss squads won six Southeastern Conference titles and a share of three National Championships as the Rebels finished nationally ranked 18 times. Both of Nutt’s Ole Miss teams ended the season nationally ranked, 14th in 2008 and 20th in 2009. In his first season in Oxford, Nutt led one of the greatest turnarounds in school history, reviving a Rebel squad that was coming off four straight losing seasons and a 3-8 campaign with no conference wins in 2007. With a 9-4 record (5-3 in the SEC), it marked the team’s best improvement from one season to the next since Vaught’s debut in 1947. Rising as high as No. 4 in the national rankings in 2009, Nutt’s Rebels knocked off No. 8 LSU, Tennessee and Arkansas en route to a second straight berth in the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, in which Ole Miss prevailed over No. 18 Oklahoma State 21-7. As Nutt entered the offseason, the 2009 FCA National Coach of the Year admitted he was facing the biggest

challenge since taking over the program, as his staff assumed the task of developing an extremely young football team with major holes to fill. While the Rebels return 47 lettermen from last season, the team lost 27, including eight starters on offense and five on defense, plus one of the best place-kickers in school history. “We thought the first year would be an enormous challenge, because we didn’t win a conference game the previous year,” Nutt said. “The youth on this team has made it our biggest challenge. We lost 24 seniors.” Offensive starters to be replaced include quarterback Jevan Snead, running back-wide receiver Dexter McCluster, fullback Andy Hartmann, wide receiver Shay Hodge, tight end Gerald Harris, guards John Jerry and Reid Neely and center Daverin Geralds. Only junior running back Brandon Bolden, junior tackle Bradley Sowell and sophomore tackle Bobby Massie return to starting positions on offense. Defensively, the Rebels are in much better shape, having lost only end Marcus Tillman, linebacker Patrick Trahan, cornerbacks Marshay Green and Cassius Vaughn and safety Kendrick Lewis. With the return of senior end Kentrell Lockett, senior tackles Jerrell Powe and Lawon Scott, senior linebackers Jonathan Cornell and Allen Walker and senior strong safety Johnny Brown to the starting lineup, the defense is being counted on to be a strong point early this season as the offense continues to develop. “This spring was a tremendous teaching time for us,

Seniors Kentrell Lockett (left) and Jerrell Powe (right) received preseason All-SEC first team honors and highlight one of the top defensive line units in the nation. 54 FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICA SELECTIONS | 181 TELEVISION APPEARANCES | 276 PRO DRAFT SELECTIONS

Senior safety Johnny Brown finished second on the team with 81 tackles last season. especially since the main focus was the entire offense,” Nutt said. “With replacing eight starters, it was a challenge and we started out taking baby steps. It was time for some of our younger players to step up, and I believe they did.” After having earned his degree in December, Snead decided to forgo his senior season to enter the National Football League Draft, leaving Nutt the task of having to replace a two-year starter who became just the second Ole Miss signal-caller to reach 2,000 passing yards in consecutive seasons. Sophomore Nathan Stanley, who saw limited duty last season, and freshman Raymond Cotton, who was redshirted, took the majority of the snaps during the spring, and Stanley emerged as the potential starter. Cotton’s progress was limited due to a sore shoulder, brought on by a tear in the labrum of his right shoulder. “Nathan had a very good spring and really learned the playbook,” Nutt said. “He took care of the ball for us and was very accurate. He got us out of a wrong play and then into the right play, so he’s ahead. “Raymond showed signs of just being an excellent quarterback, because he’s so strong and fast. He’s 6-4, 225, so he is a real physical specimen. He can run the option. He can sprint out. He can do a few things like that to keep teams off balance. He’s just got to keep learning and hopefully we can manage his arm. Once (JC transfer) Randall Mackey gets here in the fall, he’ll get a good look.” Losing McCluster and Hodge, who accounted for more than 50 percent of the team’s 205 pass receptions, opens the door for a mix of veterans and youngsters being called on to fill that void at wide receiver. “When you lose the first 1,000-yard receiver in Ole Miss history (Hodge), and then lose a guy like Dexter, who was a 1,000-yard rusher and 500-yard receiver, that’s 2,500-yards you’ve got to make up,” Nutt said. OLEMISSSPORTS.COM | 53

SEASON OUTLOOK

“We entered the spring with a lot of questions and a lot of unknowns, but we emerged with guys like seniors Lionel Breaux and Markeith Summers, sophomores Jesse Grandy and Melvin Harris and redshirt freshman Ja-Mes Logan stepping up. “Markeith and Jesse have to be our go-to guys and Lionel is a senior who we expect to show leadership for us. Ja-Mes had an excellent spring and is going to be a guy we are going to count on. Melvin had a good spring and is another receiver that’s big and tall (6-6). We need him to step up for us and become more consistent.”

While the loss of McCluster was a major blow, the Rebels are still deep when it comes to running back. Bolden, who is quicker and now down to 215 pounds, has the most experience among the returning backs, and junior Enrique Davis had an excellent spring, impressing the coaches with the way he ran “behind his pads and going downhill.” Sophomore Rodney Scott has also shown he is a tough runner, and sophomore Devin Thomas has displayed some consistency. Also in the mix are freshman Korvic Neat and junior Derrick Herman, who may be involved in certain packages. As for who will be taking over for McCluster in the

“Wild Rebel” formation, Nutt quickly mentions Grandy and Herman, a converted defensive back. “We’ve got those two guys going,” he said. Another priority in the spring was finding a fullback to replace Hartmann. “We’re going to really miss Andy, because he was so valuable,” Nutt said. “Fullback is a huge responsibility.” Sophomores E.J. Epperson and H.R. Greer will enter the fall as the top two fullbacks. The loss of the dependable Gerald Harris opened up the competition at tight end, and sophomore Ferbia Allen, who has gained 15 pounds and now weighs 245, senior Reggie Hicks and redshirt freshman Z. Mason got strong looks. After losing starters at center and both guard positions, Nutt still maintains the Rebels must continue to be strong up the middle. Sophomore A. J. Hawkins and freshman Evan Swindall battled it out all spring at center, with junior Alex Washington, sophomore Josh Tatum, freshman Chris Gill, junior Rishaw Johnson and freshman Michael Brown shooting up the depth chart at the guard spots. Sowell has the most experience among the returning offensive linemen and will be starting his second season at left tackle after taking over for All-American Michael Oher a year ago. Sowell built on that experience in the spring and was named as the Outstanding Offensive Player, based on his spring practice performance. While the offensive line struggled in the early stages of spring workouts, Nutt was pleased with the continued improvement the unit made against what is expected to be one of the Southeastern Conference’s top defensive lines.

“The reason we got off to a slow start was because we’ve got the middle that hadn’t played. Alex Washington, A.J. Hawkins and Rishaw Johnson played very little and they were going against guys like Jerrell Powe, Lawon Scott and Ted Laurent, so that makes a difference,” Nutt said. “They’re coming and getting better. They just need a thousand snaps. They’ve just got to keep working. We got better, but we must come back in the fall and get even better. Bobby Massie played the last six games at right tackle, so that helps us. We feel good about the tackle spots, because those guys have played the most football. We have a lot of holes to fill and a lot of experience that we’re missing.” Nutt feels the defensive line will once again be a major strength when the Rebels line up for the 2010 campaign, led by preseason All-SEC honorees Jerrell Powe and Kentrell Lockett. Powe also earned preseason AllAmerica accolades from several media outlets. In addition, Laurent was selected as the Outstanding Defensive Player of spring workouts. “Having a good defense gives you a chance every game,” Nutt said. “There’s nothing like having Jerrell Powe, Lawon Scott, Ted Laurent and Kentrell Lockett. Those guys are all seniors and have valuable experience. Sophomore Gerald Rivers is coming, and JC transfer Wayne Dorsey made an immediate impact at defensive end, emerging as the starter, while freshmen Cameron Whigham and Alan-Michael Thomas provide depth.” Another area on defense where Nutt feels good is at linebacker. “You must be strong up the middle and that’s where we’re the strongest. With that defensive line, and then you add returning starters in Jonathan Cornell and Allen Walker, that gives you some experience there. Those guys have played a lot of football.” Sophomore Joel Kight enters preseason as the third linebacker starter and sophomore D.T. Shackelford is back after logging extensive playing time last season. With Kight, Shackelford, freshman Mike Marry and red-

shirt freshman Alex Williams, Nutt says he feels pretty good about his two-deep at the linebacker spots. The biggest challenge on defense is replacing two starting corners, Green and Vaughn. “Corner is a very difficult position to play and junior Marcus Temple and senior Jeremy McGee have the most experience right now and their fundamentals are getting better.” With mostly youth behind Temple and McGee, redshirt freshman Charles Sawyer excited the coaches as he came on strong in the spring and demonstrated his ball skills while coming up with numerous pass interceptions, including two in the Grove Bowl. The loss of Lewis, a three-year starter at free safety, was a blow, but JUCO transfer Damien Jackson had an outstanding spring and enters the fall as the co-starter

with senior Fon Ingram. Johnny Brown’s return at strong safety is a plus and he is being backed up by redshirt freshmen Frank Crawford and Terrell Grant, who moved over from wide receiver late last season. Special teams play has always been a top priority for Nutt-coached teams, and 2010 will be no exception. With the loss of Green, Grandy is expected to get the nod for kickoff returns and punt returns, along with Bolden, after posting the second-highest kickoff return average in school history a year ago. Replacing All-SEC place-kicker Joshua Shene, who became only the second Rebel all- time to lead the team in scoring all four years, remains a major focal point heading into this season. “Joshua’s loss was huge,” Nutt said. “The guy was so consistent and made some awfully big kicks for us. We miss him.” Sophomore Bryson Rose and junior David Hankins appear in a deadlock as to who will replace Shene as the place-kicker. “Right now, Bryson Rose is a little inconsistent and he’s really getting a lot of competition from David Hankins, so that will be interesting,” Nutt said. When it comes to punting, Nutt feels good about the return of sophomore Tyler Campbell, who finished second in the conference a year ago with a 44.0 average and earned SEC All-Freshman honors. Sophomore Andrew Ritter is also back to kick off, along with Hankins. Deep-snapper Preston Powers graduated, and senior Wesley Phillips moves into that spot, with senior Richie Contartesi serving as the holder on placements. When it comes to filling leadership roles, Nutt is counting on Kentrell Lockett, Jerrell Powe, Jonathan Cornell, Allen Walker and Johnny Brown to step forward on defense, while Markeith Summers, Brandon Bolden, Nathan Stanley and Bradley Sowell are offensive players expected to be leaders. “I love this team and I love their personality,” Nutt said. “This is a good, young listening team.”

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead recovered from a slow start to throw two late touchdowns and Dexter McCluster scored twice to lead the No. 8 Rebels to a 45-14 win over Memphis. Snead hit 4 of 5 passes for 73 yards and two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, breaking open a close game. Snead was the focus of preseason hype and mentioned as a dark horse candidate for the Heisman Trophy. But when the spotlight first hit him in 2009, he struggled. He completed just 8-of-17 passes for 102 yards with two interceptions through three quarters, missing badly at

times. It took a big play by Fon Ingram to wipe away those troubles. It looked like Memphis might take the lead late in the second quarter. The Tigers trailed 10-7 and appeared to have an opportunity to take the lead with a solid drive when Ingram stepped in front of Arkelon Hall's pass and returned it 38 yards for a 17-7 halftime lead. That gave Ole Miss confidence going into the second half and Snead completed his personal comeback with a couple of rapid-fire touchdowns of 18 yards to Markeith Summers and 17 yards to McCluster in the fourth. His counterpart had a much more difficult time in the face of pressure from Ole Miss' defensive line. Hall completed 15-of-30 passes with two interceptions for 110 yards. He had 37 yards in the first half and limited the Tigers' effectiveness with several poor passes well off the mark. The Tigers had 284 total yards, three turnovers and were 0 for 2 on fourth-down conversions and 4 for 16 on third down. The defense's early stand was repaid as the offense gained strength. Brandon Bolden rushed for 71 yards on nine carries, scored one touchdown and set up McCluster's 1-yard plunge in the third quarter with a 28-yard run. McCluster had 50 yards rushing as both the Wild Rebel quarterback and an I-formation tailback and 65 yards receiving, too. Enrique Davis finished off the game with a 29-yard scoring run.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Jevan Snead threw three touchdowns, Brandon Bolden rushed for 105 yards and No. 5 Ole Miss got a big game from a freshman linebacker D.T. Shackelford in a 52-6 win over Southeastern Louisiana. The Rebels (2-0) won their eighth straight game - their longest winning streak since they won 10 in 1971-72. Ole Miss, which had about a third of its roster sick with swine flu symptoms during their off week, steps up in class next week with its Shackelford Southeastern Conference opener at South Carolina on Thursday night. Shackelford recovered two fumbles and finished off the scoring with a 58-yard interception return for touchdown against the Lions. Snead completed 16-of-28 passes for 208 yards and Bolden averaged 8.1 yards per carry and was over 100 yards in the first half. The Ole Miss defense continued to make the plays, though. The Rebels forced five turnovers, turning three into 21 points and ending two scoring threats deep in Rebels territory. They held the Lions to 302 yards and didn't allow a single third-down conversion in 14 tries. Cassius Vaughn intercepted a pass deep in Rebels territory that kept the Lions off the scoreboard early. The statistics show the Ole Miss offense with 500 total yards and 258 yards rushing after going up 24-0 at halftime. Snead threw two of his three touchdowns in the first half, extending his school record to eight straight games with multiple scoring passes. The Rebels scored more than 40 points for the fourth straight game, a school record. Bolden was a beast in the first half. He broke tackles at the line of scrimmage and downfield and set up Ole Miss' first touchdown with an athletic run that included a whiplash-inducing stiff-arm and a burst of speed at the corner.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Ole Miss could not defend its Top 5 ranking or overcome South Carolina's defense. Star passer Jevan Snead was hounded all game and the fourth-ranked Rebels never got in gear, losing to South Carolina 16-10. Spencer Lanning kicked three field goals and fullback Patrick DiMarco a key 2-yard TD catch for the Gamecocks. Ole Miss (2-1, 0-1) had one last chance at a go-ahead TD that would've extended its eight-game winning streak. But Snead was sacked by Cliff Matthews, then had a fourth-down pass knocked away by Darian

Stewart. Snead, the Ole Miss junior, missed six straight throws during one stretch but did come through with a critical play. His 45-yard TD pass to Markeith Summers with under 10 minutes left in the game that cut it to 16-10. South Carolina's defense had to come through after that because the offense, which controlled things for much of the first three quarters went three-and-out on its final four possessions. Snead's 11-yard pass to Pat Patterson brought Ole Miss to the Gamecock 32 with 2:55 to play. Then coach Houston Nutt tried to outfox South Carolina. Snead had thrown at least two TD passes in each of his past eight games. He finished this game 7-of-21 for 107 yards. Bolden appeared to get things going with a 59-yard touchdown run. A holding penalty, however, brought that back and the Rebels eventually settled for their only points of the half on Joshua Shene's 42-yard field goal. Ole Miss came close to scoring just once more, but instead of another field goal, Nutt went with a fake. Holder Justin Sparks' pass to Derrick Davis came up 2 yards shy of a first down. Garcia fumbled away one drive after a sack on Ole Miss 16 in the first quarter. An illegal shift on the Rebels' 4 led to Lanning's first field goal. Freshman receiver Tori Gurley caught Garcia's pass and took it in for a 12-yard score right before halftime. But South Carolina was flagged for an ineligible receiver downfield. Lanning converted a 20-yard field goal to put the Gamecocks ahead 6-3 at the break.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jevan Snead passed for three touchdowns as No. 18 Ole Miss bounced back with a 23-7 victory over Vanderbilt. Snead threw for just one touchdown in last week's 16-10 loss to South Carolina, a game that dropped the Rebels (3-1, 1-1 SEC) from a No. 4 ranking that had been their highest since 1970. He matched his season high with three TDs against Vanderbilt in helping the Rebels to their best start since 2002 when they opened 5-1. The Commodores (2-3, 0-2) picked off four Snead passes a year ago Hodge in Oxford, Miss. They nearly matched that with Jamie Graham, Casey Heyward and Myron Lewis each intercepting a pass. But Ole Miss' Marcus Temple intercepted Larry Smith in the end zone with 10:55 left to help preserve a 23-7 lead. Ole Miss outgained Vanderbilt 397-240 and held the ball for nearly 36 minutes. The Commodores disintegrated twice inside the Ole Miss 20 in the first half. They missed two field goal attempts and finished with an uncharacteristic 12 penalties for 74 yards. Ole Miss did its part, sacking Smith four times. Nutt said he thought his defense was outstanding, though Vandy had scored only 12 points combined in its two previous SEC games. Snead came in having completed 49.3 percent of his passes and ranked 65th nationally in passing efficiency. He looked much more like the quarterback who led the Rebels to a Cotton Bowl win as he guided them to three scoring drives in the first half. He had two TD passes in the second quarter. His best throw of the night, a 48-yarder down the right sideline to Shay Hodge on third-and-16, set up his 12-yard TD pass to Brandon Bolden for a 17-0 halftime lead. He made it 23-0 by capping the Rebels' opening drive of the third quarter with a 7-yard TD to Hodge, his second of the game. Snead finished 19 of 34 for 237 yards, all season highs.

Game #6 • Oct. 17, 2009 Attendance: 47,612 • Vaught-Hemingway • Oxford, Miss.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mark Ingram rushed for 172 yards and a touchdown and No. 3 Alabama defeated No. 16 Ole Miss at VaughtHemingway Stadium in a battle of ranked teams. Jevan Snead threw four interceptions for Ole Miss, tying a career high, and the Crimson Tide scored after a blocked punt and a fumble recovery on a punt return. Leigh Tiffin hit five short field goals, passing his father Van Tiffin on the Crimson Tide career list for third place in career scoring. Shene Snead completed 11-of-34 passes for 140 yards. Twice Alabama defenders ripped the ball away from Ole Miss receivers who were bobbling it. The Crimson Tide held the Rebels to 19 yards and one first down in the first half on the way to a 16-0 lead and allowed them past the 50 just four times overall. The Rebel defense answered with big play after big play despite being on the field for 35:30. The defense was especially good after turnovers. The Rebels forced a field goal with a goal-line stand after Cory Reamer's blocked punt gave Alabama the ball at the 5. But with the Ole Miss offense holding the ball for just 8:57 in the first half, Alabama used 47 plays for to rack up 237 yards. That helped Mark Ingram score untouched from 36 yards out on fourth and 1 with 55 seconds left in the half to make it 16-0. The defense rallied and came up big again late in the third quarter after Reamer stripped Dexter McCluster on a punt return and recovered the fumble, giving Alabama the ball at the Ole Miss 40. Jonathan Cornell and Kentrell Lockett sacked McElroy for an 11-yard loss on first down, but Ingram picked up the Tide's third fourth-down conversion, then carried the ball to the 3 with a 24-yard run. The Rebels, however, forced the Tide back a yard on the next three plays before Kiffin's fourth field goal. After Kareem Jackson returned an interception deep into Rebels territory in the fourth quarter, the Ole Miss defense forced a fumble. Ole Miss defensive backs also knocked two passes away from Julio Jones in the end zone.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Jevan Snead threw for 240 yards and three touchdowns as Ole Miss defeated UAB 48-13. One week after throwing four interceptions against Alabama, Snead was 15-for-22 with no interceptions for the Rebels (4-2). Freshman Rodney Scott rushed for two second-quarter touchdowns for Ole Miss and was one of four players to score their first career touchdowns. Scott Freshman Jesse Grandy returned the opening kickoff 88 yards for a score and junior Lionel Breaux scored on his seventh reception of the season. Sophomore Andrew Harris caught touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. Despite scoring 13 seconds into the game, Ole Miss struggled offensively and managed just 45 yards of total offense in the first quarter. But the Rebels came to life after that, scoring on six consecutive possessions. Quarterback Joe Webb rushed for 121 yards, threw for 89 yards and scored the only touchdown for UAB (2-4). Playing their first game in 16 days, the Blazers didn't get on the scoreboard until they trailed 41-0. Ole Miss got a quick shot in the arm when Grandy received the kickoff at the 12-yard line, leaped over teammate Brandon Sanders, who was blocking near the 30-yard line, and broke free down the right sideline. Ole Miss gained 501 yards on offense, compared to 351 for UAB. Scott led the Rebels on the ground with 57 yards on nine carries, and Brandon Bolden rushed for 56 yards on 12 rushes. Shay Hodge caught a team-high seven passes for 99 yards.

Snead

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Dexter McCluster set career highs in rushing and receiving, and Jevan Snead threw for a career-high 332 yards to lead Ole Miss to a 30-17 victory over Arkansas. Ole Miss (5-2, 2-2 SEC) jumped ahead 17-0 and controlled the line of scrimmage throughout. The Rebels could have won by more if not for three turnovers. Arkansas (3-4, 1-4) pulled to 24-17 in the third quarter when Carlton Salters caught a tipped pass for a 58-yard touchdown, but the Razorbacks couldn't finish the rally and Ole Miss added two field goals in

the fourth. McCluster plays a variety of roles for Ole Miss, but he hadn't been much of a factor this season. That changed right away against Arkansas. He touched the ball on about half the Rebels' first-quarter plays and had already run for a career-high 108 yards by halftime. In the second half, he caught a screen pass, eluded the first line of defense and went 64 yards for a touchdown and a 24-10 lead. He finished with 123 yards rushing and 137 receiving to become the first Rebel in the modern era to top the century mark in both categories. Arkansas kept it close with a touchdown on a lucky bounce. Ryan Mallett threw deep for Greg Childs on third-and-long. Childs went up with two Ole Miss defenders, and the ball caromed right to Salters, who jogged the final few feet to the end zone. That made the score look respectable, but the Rebels controlled this game. They made 31 first downs to Arkansas' 13 and outgained the Razorbacks 553-299. Snead opened the scoring with a 1-yard touchdown run, then threw a 25-yard scoring pass to Shay Hodge near the end of the first quarter. The Rebels kept Arkansas off balance in the second. Snead lined up out wide in the Wild Rebel formation, and when Ole Miss ran a reverse to him, he threw deep to Markeith Summers for a 39-yard gain that set up a field goal. Arkansas finally scored to make it 17-7 on Knile Davis' 3-yard run with 2:15 left in the half.

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Chris Todd passed for 212 yards, Ben Tate ran for 144 yards and Walt McFadden returned an interception for a touchdown to lift Auburn to a 33-20 win over No. 22 Ole Miss. The Tigers (6-3, 3-3 SEC) scored 23 points in the third quarter and turned away Jevan Snead and the Rebels (5-3, 2-3) seven times on drives to midfield or beyond. Ole Miss had appeared to get back on track with two straight wins but couldn't overcome a frenzied third-quarter flurry that led to a 24-point Grandy hole. McFadden stopped the Rebels' final chance by stepping in front of Snead's pass near the Auburn goal line for his second pick in the final minutes. He also had a 29-yard return for a score in the third quarter. The teams traded huge momentum swings in the third quarter, combining for a wild 36 points. Auburn nearly reached its 24-point total of the previous two games. The Tigers scored two touchdowns in 12 seconds to take a 24-7 lead with 11:25 left. First, Wildcat quarterback Kodi Burns tossed a 14-yard touchdown pass to tight end Tommy Trott. On the next play, McFadden snagged the ball with his right hand after it bounced off the hands of Markeith Summers, then shook off Summers and headed to the end zone. Tate then scampered 53 yards for a score, becoming the fifth Auburn back to surpass 3,000 career yards. Jesse Grandy answered with an 82-yard kick return to push the margin back to 17 points, then the game got even wilder. Dexter McCluster sprinted 79 yards for a touchdown to make it 31-20. Joshua Shene's point after attempt hit a teammate in the back and Demond Washington returned it all the way for two points. McCluster had his second straight huge game, rushing for 186 yards on 22 carries and catching four passes for another 17 a week after racking up 260 all-purpose yards. Snead couldn't get going, completing 16-of-35 passes for 175 yards - 105 courtesy of Shay Hodge - and a touchdown and was hurt by several dropped passes. Ole Miss opened the game by breezing 94 yards for a touchdown without facing a third-down play but trailed 10-7 at halftime.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Shay Hodge scored two touchdowns on a career-high 169 receiving yards and Ole Miss pulled away from Northern Arizona 38-14. With the Rebels' top offensive weapon Dexter McCluster getting much of the night off, Hodge scored twice, including a 65-yard strike from quarterback Jevan Snead. The Lumberjacks (5-4) made the game interesting with a pair of Snead second-quarter touchdowns, the second one tying the score at 14 with just under 8 minutes left in the half. But the Rebels (6-3) responded with 24 unanswered points. Snead threw for two touchdowns and rushed for two more, and Hodge came up with his second consecutive 100-plus-yard game. It was the fourth time this season that Snead did not throw an interception, with three of those games coming outside of conference play. The junior completed 16 of 29 passes for 235 yards. Hodge caught nearly half of those passes, finishing with seven receptions. Northern Arizona quarterback Michael Herrick returned to the school that signed him out of high school. The junior who did not play in two seasons with the Rebels, threw for 233 yards on 20-for-31 passing in his first action at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Ole Miss blocked a pair of field goals in the second half. Kendrick Lewis blocked the first and Kentrell Lockett got the second. Most of the action came during a second quarter, when the two teams combined for 38 of the game's 52 points. Ole Miss quickly grabbed momentum when Marcus Tillman intercepted Herrick on the first play of the game and returned it to the 15-yard line. Five plays later, Snead completed a 6-yard touchdown pass to Hodge.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Dexter McCluster rushed for 282 yards and finished with 324 all-purpose yards, setting records at both Ole Miss and Tennessee as his Rebels’ ran over the Volunteers 42-17. His rushing yards broke the Rebels’ record of 242 by Dou Innocent in 1995. He eclipsed the all-purpose mark of 317 yards by Deuce McAllister in 1999. McCluster scored on runs of 15, 23, 32 and 71 yards in Ole Miss' McCluster first win against the Volunteers since 1983. It's the most rushing yards given up by the Volunteers. Tennessee had yielded 217 yards to Colorado's Mike Pritchard in 1990 and Alabama's Bobby Humphrey in 1986. Ole Miss (7-3, 3-3 SEC) - off to its best start since 2003 - clinched bowl eligibility for the second straight year with the victory. It was the Rebels’ first win against Tennessee (5-5, 2-4) in 13 games. McCluster scored his first touchdown just 1:31 into the game and added another with 1:20 left in the opening quarter. His 32-yard scamper came in the third quarter and Ole Miss opened the fourth quarter with McCluster's 71-yarder. Brandon Bolden added 46 rushing yards and two touchdowns for the Rebels, who finished with 492 yards of total offense, including 359 on the ground. It was former Ole Miss coach Ed Orgeron's first return to Oxford since he was fired in November 2007 after three seasons. In his first year at Tennessee as defensive line coach the Vols have improved, but struggled against the Rebels. Jevan Snead, who was 13 of 20 passes for 133 yards, was sacked only once. Jonathan Crompton finished 20 of 37 for 176 yards and two Tennessee touchdowns. He hit Jeff Cottam with a 16-yard TD in the first quarter and Denarius Moore with a 25-yarder in the second quarter. But the Vols' offense never got on track, gaining just 275 yards over all, 99 on the ground. Their only other score was a 27-yard field goal by Daniel Lincoln in the third quarter.

Game #11 • Nov. 21, 2009 Attendance: 61,752 • Vaught-Hemingway • Oxford, Miss.

Game #12 • Nov. 28, 2009 Attendance: 55,365 • Davis Wade • Starkville, Miss.

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Time ran out on No. 8 LSU before it could attempt a short, potential game-winning field goal and Dexter McCluster and Ole Miss survived a frantic final minute to come away with a 25-23 victory. After LSU pulled within two points on Jordan Jefferson's touchdown pass to Rueben Randle with 1:17 left, the Tigers failed to convert the tying 2-point conversion on a fade pass into the corner of the end Hodge zone. Brandon LaFell recovered the ensuing onsides kick at the LSU 42 and got his team into Ole Miss territory with a 26-yard reception that included two broken tackles and 20 yards after the catch. But Ole Miss sacked Jefferson for a 9-yard loss, then snuffed out a screen pass, and left the Tigers with fourth-and-26 from the Ole Miss 48 with 9 seconds left after a timeout. After the timeout, Jefferson hit Toliver on a 43-yard in traffic pass down the right side to the 6 and the team rushed down the field. There appeared to be confusion among the chain gang and it took several seconds for the first-down marker to be placed. LSU did not send out its field goal team and was not completely lined up when the referee signaled for the clock to start and Jefferson had no options as the time expired before he could spike the ball. Before the craziness at the end, McCluster was the story. He ran for 148 yards and passed for a touchdown, a 27-yarder to wide-open Shay Hodge for the first completion of his career midway through the fourth quarter. Ole Miss' second straight win over its traditional rival turned out to be one of the most exciting games in the series. The Rebels' defense shut down the Tigers much of the second half and appeared to earn the win after grinding out a 15-play drive that consumed 8:26 and ended in a short field goal that gave them an eight-point lead. It was the first time Ole Miss beat LSU in consecutive seasons since 1997-99. Hodge had seven catches for 117 yards, tying the school record for 100-yard games in a season.

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Little-used backup quarterback Chris Relf accounted for three second-half touchdowns, as the Bulldogs upset No. 20 Ole Miss 41-27 in the Egg Bowl. Ole Miss (8-4, 4-4 SEC) couldn't stop the one-two combination of Relf and Anthony Dixon, who finished with 133 yards and a touchdown. Dixon has 1,390 yards in 11 games, breaking James Johnson's school record by seven yards. Summers It was the sixth straight win for the home team in the series and the 10th in the last 11 games. The Bulldogs carried the golden eggshaped trophy given to the winner to the end zone and celebrated with fans after the win, which came a year after an embarrassing 45-0 loss. Relf had been Tyson Lee's backup and shared playing time all season, but was often given the short hook after mistakes. This time he played most of the second half and dominated Ole Miss with 131 yards rushing, averaging 10 per carry on his first 10 and 8.7 yards overall. The run specialist also stung the Rebels with touchdown passes of 2 and 34 yards, rallying the Bulldogs from a 13-10 halftime deficit. The Bulldogs gave up 385 yards, but were stingy inside the 20. The Rebels' most success came on long pass plays for touchdowns - 20 yards to Shay Hodge, 48 yards to Markeith Summers and 52 to Dexter McCluster. The Bulldogs held McCluster under 100 rushing yards to snap a four-game streak against SEC opponents, but he still managed 145 all-purpose yards. Jevan Snead finished with 275 yards passing and three TDs, but his three interceptions were costly. With 96 yards receiving and a touchdown, Hodge set the single-season school record for receiving yards and became the first Rebel to surpass 1,000 yards (1,023).

2009 BREAKDOWN

Game #13 • AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic • Jan. 2, 2010 Attendance: 77,928 • Cowboys Stadium • Arlington, Texas ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Dexter McCluster gave Ole Miss fans a finale to remember, rushing for 184 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead 2-yard run on a direct snap with 4:03 left as the Rebels beat No. 18 Oklahoma State 21-7 in the Cotton Bowl. McCluster also had an 86-yard TD run in the second quarter after the senior had already become the first Southeastern Conference player with 1,000 yards rushing and 500 yards receiving in the same season. Ole Miss (9-4) had five turnovers in the game, but Oklahoma State McCluster had six in the fourth quarter, and seven overall. The Rebels failed to capitalize on Kendrick Lewis’ two interceptions, but McCluster scored after a fumble to break a 7-7 tie. Patrick Trahan picked up another fumble and returned it 34 yards for a touchdown less than a minute later, then intercepted a deflected fourth-down pass by Oklahoma State’s Zac Robinson on the next drive. Nutt has led to Rebels to consecutive 9-4 seasons, both capped by Cotton Bowl victories. Ole Miss had lost all eight of its SEC games in 2007 before Nutt arrived. McCluster was the obvious standout, the game’s offensive MVP for the second year in a row. He had 34 carries along with five catches for 45 yards. He leaves Ole Miss with 3,923 career all-purpose yards, second in school history behind Deuce McAllister’s 4,889. After becoming only Ole Miss’ fourth 1,000-yard rusher on his third carry of the game, McCluster surpassed 500 yards receiving on the final play of the first quarter. Yet, his best was still to come. McCluster’s 86-yard TD run in the second quarter came on a handoff from freshman quarterback Nathan Stanley. McCluster went to the right and through a gap, running untouched for the second-longest run in the 74-year history of the Cotton Bowl. That was Ole Miss’ first offensive play after Jevan Snead threw an interception and was hit so hard on a blindside block while pursuing the defender with the ball that his helmet got knocked off. Oklahoma State tied the game at 7-7 midway through the third quarter when running back Keith Toston took a direct snap on third-and-goal from the 1. He made a step toward the line, then stopped and threw a jump pass to Wilson Youman for a touchdown. On third-and-goal from just outside the 1 in the first quarter, Ole Miss’ 330-pound defensive tackle Jerrell Powe lined up at fullback like he had done several times this season. Powe got his first carry, but was stuffed just short by linebacker Donald Booker. Powe got payback in the third quarter when Oklahoma State tried to score on fourth-andgoal from the 1. Powe wrapped up Toston’s legs behind the line before Lewis hit him high to stop him short. Oklahoma State Ole Miss 2nd Quarter 11:19 UM 3rd Quarter 7:13 OSU 4th Quarter 4:03 UM 3:12 UM

SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE

OLE MISS SEC STATISTICAL CHAMPIONS (SINCE 1948)

HISTORY AND RECORDS

HISTORY OF OLE MISS FOOTBALL The University of Mississippi boasts a long and colorful football history, which includes the formation of the first football team in the state, as well as one of the winningest programs in the history of collegiate football. In its 117-year history, the Ole Miss football program has claimed three national championships (1959, 1960 and 1962), six Southeastern Conference titles (1947, 1954, 1955, 1960, 1962, and 1963), and one SEC Western Division title (2003), produced 54 first-team All-America selections and 166 All-SEC First Team selections, appeared in 33 bowl games with 21 wins, and sent more than 270 players into the professional ranks.

Rebel Football Beginnings

The beginnings of the program can be traced all the way back to 1890, when Dr. A.L. Bondurant, who would later serve as dean of the Graduate School, urged Ole Miss students to help in the formation of an Athletic Association in the interests of football, baseball and tennis. Such a group became a reality a short while later, and in 1893, a football team was organized, with Bondurant serving as the manager-coach. That first squad set a precedent that was to become an Ole Miss tradition, winning four of five games during that maiden season, including a 56-0 victory over Southwest Baptist University of Jackson, Tenn., in the inaugural game on Nov. 11, 1893. Early financial matters were the responsibility of the manager and support came largely from the Athletic Association, which was made up of a combination of students and faculty members willing to back the athletes by payment of a small fee. Although it has never been documented, it is thought that C.D. Clark of Tufts was the first paid football coach at Ole Miss. His name appears as manager of the team as shown in the Ole Miss Magazine dated November 1894.

The Pre-WWII Years

Prior to 1925, a total of 22 coaches took their turn as head coach at Ole Miss, with only seven heading up the program for more than one season. Those early years were characterized by periods of both prosperity and difficulty: 1883-95, 12-3; 1896-1908, 24-36-1; 1909-14, 33-17-4; and 1915-24, 30-48. Since the formation of the Athletics Committee in 1925, the Rebels have had just 14 head coaches, with three of those also handling the dual responsibility of athletic director. The establishment of the committee on a faculty-alumni basis (a student representative has since been added) seemed to re-establish alumni support for the football program and a bright future lay ahead. Homer Hazel of Rutgers served as the head coach from 1925-29, winning 21 games, losing 22 and tying three before being succeeded by Ed Walker, a Stanford graduate, in 1930. While Walker’s record was a modest 38-38-8 over his eight-year stay, he firmly established the direction of the football program. He took Ole Miss to its first bowl game in 1935, with the Rebels falling to Catholic University, 20-19 in the Orange Bowl, and also coached the Rebels’ first All-America first teamer in Bruiser Kinard 100 | REBEL FOOTBALL 2010

First Ole Miss All-American Bruiser Kinard (Left)

in 1936. Kinard, who also earned All-America first-team honors in 1937, would be the first of 44 Rebels to earn the prestigious national accolade. Under Walker’s tenure, Ole Miss took another step to help cement a solid future for Rebel football and other athletic teams when it became a charter member of the SEC in 1933. The Rebels have competed in the league ever since. Prior to joining the SEC, Ole Miss had competed in the Southern Conference from 1922-32. Harry Mehre, from Notre Dame, became the head coach in 1938 and put together a pre-war record of 3926-1, which included several notable victories. Mehre led Ole Miss to its first-ever victory over Vanderbilt in 1939, its first win in 11 years over LSU in 1938, and the first win over Tulane in 25 seasons in 1941. The post-war period would prove to be the Rebels’ most glorious era as C.M. “Tad” Smith, a member of the Ole Miss athletic family since 1929, succeeded Mehre as director of athletics. Smith would serve as athletic director for 25 years before retiring on Feb. 1, 1971. Harold (Red) Drew of Bates was brought in as head coach in 1946 and Ole Miss football stood on the verge of becoming one of the most powerful and respected programs in the country. A long-time assistant coach at Alabama, Drew remained at Ole Miss just one season before returning to Tuscaloosa as head coach, but his brief stay would prove to change the course of Rebel football.

Vaught Places Ole Miss On National Football Map

John Vaught, a line coach under Drew and a former All-American at TCU, remained in Oxford as head coach in 1947 and led the Ole Miss program to national prominence over the next 24 years. In his first season at the helm in 1947, the Rebels posted a 9-2 record and won the first of six SEC crowns (1947, 1954, 1955, 1960, 1962, 1963). That 1947 season also saw Ole Miss great Charlie Conerly become the first Rebel player to be a contender for the Heisman Trophy, placing fourth in the voting for the prestigious

honor. Vaught’s first year proved to be a sign of good things to come for Ole Miss. During his 24-year tenure, the Rebels would have only one losing campaign. Vaught’s squads, however, didn’t stop at just winning league titles, as the Rebels claimed three national championships in 1959, 1960 and 1962. Ole Miss won

record (.778 winning percentage). The 80 wins and 77.8 winning percentage were second to only Oklahoma during that decade. In the 1960s, Vaught guided the Rebels to a 72-20-6 record and a 76.5 winning percentage, which was the fourth best during that decade. Under Vaught’s guidance, Ole Miss made Hemingway Stadium (later named Vaught-Hemingway Stadium) one of the toughest places in the nation for opposing teams to play. In his 24 seasons at the helm, Vaught’s teams compiled an impressive 57-6-2 record in Oxford for an astounding 89.2 winning percentage. From 1952-1964,

the Rebels put together an incredible 34-game homefield unbeaten streak (33-0-1), including 21-straight victories from 1952-59. In the 1950s and 1960s under Vaught, Ole Miss was a fixture in the national polls. The Rebels were ranked atop the Associated Press poll for three weeks during the 1960 season and one week during the 1961 campaign. In 1964, Ole Miss was ranked preseason No. 1 in the Associated Press poll. Vaught also made going to postseason play the norm rather than the exception for the Rebel football program. Ole Miss played in 15 consecutive bowl games from 1957-71 which, at that time, was a national record. In all, Vaught led Ole Miss to 18 bowl game appearances, posting a 10-8 record in those contests. For his efforts, Vaught was named SEC Coach of the Year six times (1947, 1948, 1954, 1955, 1960, 1962). During his time at the helm, Vaught coached some of the best players ever to wear the Red & Blue. In 24 seasons, Vaught produced 26 All-America first teamers. He also coached four players who finished in the top five in the Heisman Trophy voting. Along with Conerly in 1947, Charlie Flowers (5th in 1959), Jake Gibbs (3rd in 1960) and Archie Manning (4th in 1969, 3rd in 1970) were in the running for college football’s top honor. Failing health forced Vaught to resign his position in 1970 and the reins of the Ole Miss football program were turned over to Billy Kinard.

The Post-Vaught Years

Kinard became the first Ole Miss alumnus to head up the football program, while Frank “Bruiser” Kinard, an offensive line coach under Vaught since 1948, was named to replace Smith as athletic director that same year. The Rebels went 16-9 under Billy Kinard, including a 10-2 record and a 41-18 Peach Bowl victory over Georgia Tech in his first year in 1971. Kinard’s 10 victories are tied for fourth most by a first-year head coach in NCAA Division I history. Kinard coached the Rebels through the 1972 campaign and the third contest of the 1973 season, before startling developments following the Sept. 22, 1973, game with Memphis State saw both Kinards replaced by Vaught. Vaught returned to the field to guide the Rebels through the remainder of the 1973 season while also taking on the responsibility of athletic director. Following the 1973 football campaign, Vaught resigned once again as head coach, but remained on as athletic director. His final record with the Rebels was an amazing 190-61-12. The 190 victories still rank Vaught among the top 25 winningest coaches in NCAA Division I history, and he is the fourth-winningest coach in SEC history behind Bear Bryant’s (Alabama) 323 wins, Lou Holtz’s (South Carolina) 238 wins and Vince Dooley’s (Georgia) 201 victories. In 1979, Vaught was inducted in the National College Football Hall of Fame. Ken Cooper, an assistant under Kinard since 1971, was named head coach on Jan. 17, 1974, and took Ole Miss through the 1977 season. Cooper compiled a 21-23 record during his four years at the helm, and his tenure is probably best remembered for one hot and humid day in September 1977. In one of the most memorable games in Rebel football history, Ole Miss upset Notre Dame, 20OLEMISSSPORTS.COM | 101

the 1959 Dunkel System national crown, the 1960 Football Writers Association of America, Dunkel System, and Williamson System national championships and the 1962 Litkenhous Ratings national title. Vaught’s 1959 squad, which was honored as the “SEC Team of the Decade,” was ranked the third best collegiate football team from 1956 to 1995, according to the Jeff Sagarin Ratings released in January of 1996. The Rebels were also among the winningest programs in the country under Vaught during the 1950s and 1960s. From 1950-59, Ole Miss posted an 80-21-5

Following the 1977 season, Steve Sloan was hired as the new Rebel boss and began his five-year stint in 1978. Sloan posted a 20-34 record from 1978-82.

Brewer Returns

After stepping outside the Ole Miss family football tree the previous nine seasons, Ole Miss looked for a familiar face to lead the football program, and the Rebels found that person when Billy Brewer returned to Oxford to take over as head coach in December of 1982. In only his first season in 1983, Brewer put the Ole Miss program on the road back to national prominence. Brewer guided the Rebels to their first winning regular season since 1977 with a 7-4 mark. The Rebels received their first bowl game invitation since 1971 and met Air Force in the Independence Bowl. Ole Miss dropped a 9-3 decision to the Falcons and finished with a 7-5 record. Brewer followed his first season with 10 more at the helm of the Rebel program. During his tenure, he led the Rebels to five more winning seasons and four additional bowls, including Ole Miss’ 1990 New Year’s Day Gator Bowl appearance. The Jan. 1 bowl game was the program’s first since 1969. He was named SEC Coach of the Year in 1986 (8-3-1 record) and 1990 (9-3 record), and the 1986 season saw the Rebels return to the national rankings for the first time in over a decade. In his 11 seasons, Brewer also led Ole Miss to eight Egg Bowl victories over rival Mississippi State. Brewer coached 11 years (1983-93) and compiled a 67-56-3 record, making him the second winningest Ole Miss football coach behind Vaught. Brewer was dismissed just prior to the 1994 season, and Joe Lee Dunn took over as interim coach, directing the Rebels to a 4-7 record under difficult circumstances.

Rebels On The Rise

In the mid-1990s, Ole Miss football was somewhat down, but not out, and it needed a boost of energy to revitalize the program. On Dec. 2, 1994, Tommy Tuberville was selected as the coach in charge of getting the Rebels on the right track. After serving as an assistant coach on the collegiate level for nine seasons (eight at Miami and one at Texas A&M), Tuberville began creating excitement in his first season in 1995, finishing the campaign with a 6-5 record and a Egg Bowl victory over Mississippi State. That excitement grew to a fever pitch in 1997, when Ole Miss recorded its best season since 1992 with an 8-4 record, a thrilling 15-14 Egg Bowl victory over Mississippi State and a Motor City Bowl win over Marshall. The bowl appearance was the program’s first since 1992, and the Rebels earned a final national ranking of No. 22 in both polls. The revitalized Ole Miss program continued its winning ways in 1998, despite a coaching change following the regular season. David Cutcliffe took over as head coach on Dec. 2, 1998. Cutcliffe, who came to Ole Miss from his offensive coordinator post at Tennessee, took over the reins just 29 days before the Rebels’ Sanford Independence Bowl date versus Texas Tech. Despite the short preparation time for the game, Cutcliffe led the Rebels to a 35-18 victory over the Red Raiders, quite arguably the biggest upset of the 1998 bowl season.

Offensive Fireworks Over Oxford

Cutcliffe, who is recognized as one of the top offensive minds in collegiate football, brought with him to Oxford a high-powered offensive style that had Rebel fans waiting with anticipation for each season to start. In his six seasons, the Rebels averaged more than 350 points per year, including shattering the record for points scored in a season during the 2003 campaign with 442. The previous mark was 391 points by the 2001 squad. During Cutcliffe’s tenure, the Rebels set numerous game, season and career records.

Cutcliffe’s football philosophy also translated into wins for the Rebel program. Under Cutcliffe, Ole Miss posted 44 overall victories, including four wins in the postseason. In the time from 1997-2003, the Rebels played in six bowl games, tied with Arkansas for the most bowl appearances among SEC Western Division schools during that span. The only SEC teams that made bowl appearances all seven years were Florida, Georgia and Tennessee, all Eastern Division squads. In 2003 Cutcliffe guided the Rebels, who many picked to finish fifth in the SEC’s Western Division, to a 10-3 overall mark and a share of the SEC West title with eventual BCS National Champion LSU. The title was the Rebels’ first league football title of any sort since winning the conference crown in 1963. Following their 31-28 victory over Oklahoma State in the SBC Cotton Bowl Classic, the Rebels ended the 2003 campaign with a No. 13 national ranking. It was Ole Miss’ first New Year’s bowl since the 1991 Gator Bowl against Michigan. Cutcliffe preceded his 2003 campaign with four winning seasons in 1999 (8-4), 2000 (7-5), 2001 (7-4) and 2002 (7-6) becoming the first Rebel mentor since

Coach “O” Puts Rebels on Recruiting Map

On December 16, 2004, Ole Miss turned to one of college football’s premier recruiters and defensive line coaches in Ed Orgeron. He took control of the Rebel program after serving the previous seven seasons as defensive line coach at the University of Southern California, where he played a key role in Pete Carroll’s Trojans winning back-to-back national championships in 2003 and 2004. Orgeron also served as USC’s recruiting coordinator from 2001-2004 and was named the 2004 National Recruiter of the Year by The Sporting News and Rivals. com. Orgeron’s talent as a recruiter created a buzz among Rebel fans and drew national attention when Ole Miss’ 2006 signing class finished as high as ninth in the rankings. All three of his recruiting classes were listed among the best in college football.

The Houston Nutt Era Begins

The Ole Miss football program sought a proven winner in a head coach and found that man and more in Houston Nutt, who was introduced as the Rebels’ 36th head coach on Nov. 28, 2007. After guiding Arkansas to three SEC Western Division titles and eight bowl berths in his decade in Fayetteville, Nutt immediately reversed the Rebels’ fortunes and became just the fifth Ole Miss coach to guide the Rebels to a bowl in his first season. Nutt’s first two years at the helm have produced consecutive nine-win seasons for the first time since 1961-62 and back-to-back January bowl victories for the first time since 1960-61. Rising as high as No. 4 in the national rankings in 2009, Nutt’s Rebels knocked off No. 8 LSU, Tennessee and Arkansas en route to a second straight berth in the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, in which Ole Miss prevailed over No. 18 Oklahoma State 21-7. In his first season in Oxford, Nutt led one of the greatest turnarounds in school history, reviving a Rebel squad that was coming off four straight losing seasons and a 3-8 campaign with no conference wins in 2007. With a 9-4 record (5-3 in the SEC), it marked the team’s best improvement from one season to the next since legendary Ole Miss Coach John Vaught’s debut in 1947. Projected to place fifth in the SEC Western Division in the preseason, Nutt’s first Rebel unit finished second in

the West, ended the season on a six-game win streak and earned a No. 14 final national ranking. Ole Miss has always been committed to having one of the top football programs in the nation, and the University has strengthened that commitment in recent years. Among the newest upgrades to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium was a new $6 million integrated system featuring a large high definition video display that was installed at the beginning of the 2008 season. The Daktronics video display is one of the largest true high definition displays in the Southeastern Conference. Also included in the upgrades was a new sound system. In addition, a new state-of-the-art synthetic surface

called FieldTurf was installed in the stadium for the 2009 season. Among the finest facilities in all of college athletics, the Indoor Practice Facility sits right beside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The 150,000 square-foot enclosure features a full-sized indoor practice field among many other amenities. The tradition continues for a program with a proud and storied history.
