SEC might decide to sit out this year’s coaching carousel
Southeastern Conference teams may not bother taking a spin on this year's coaching carousel.
While at least one coach has been fired already in each of the other Power Five conferences, the SEC doesn't have any coach on the brink of being let go heading into the final weekend of the regular season. Barring a surprise move, 2019 would mark the first time since 2006 that the SEC begins a season with no new head coaches.

Former Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt refiles lawsuit vs school
OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Houston Nutt's lawsuit against Ole Miss, its athletic foundation and the Institutions of Higher Learning Board of Trustees has been refiled in Lafayette County Circuit Court.
Former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze, who resigned in July after a university investigation uncovered a "troubling pattern of personal conduct," issued an apology to Ole Miss fans on RebelGrove.com. The controversy began when a call made by Freeze to a number tied to a Tampa, Fla. escort service was brought to the university's attention by a lawyer for Houston Nutt, another former Ole Miss coach who is suing the univeristy. Nutt’s attorney emailed Ole Miss’s general counsel and mentioned a “phone...
Former Mississippi coach Houston Nutt's civil lawsuit against the school and its athletics foundation has been dismissed by a federal judge.
The one-page filing Wednesday said the federal court "lacks jurisdiction under the pleadings as presented" and the suit was dismissed by U.S. District Judge Neal Biggers. The suit was dismissed without prejudice, meaning it can be refiled.
The man whom Hugh Freeze replaced as Mississippi's football coach was at least partially responsible for Freeze's stunning downfall.
It was a recently filed civil lawsuit from Houston Nutt — who coached Ole Miss from 2008 to '11 — against the university that unearthed the phone records that eventually revealed Freeze's school-issued cellphone had dialed an escort service on at least one occasion in 2016.
