Nevin Shapiro Spoke With Houston Nutt About Miami Job In 2006

The latest name to be caught in Nevin Shapiro's web of deceit, allegations and violations related to Miami Hurricanes football is Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt, whom had multiple phone conversations with Shapiro in 2006 over the then-vacant head coaching job at UM.

According to Nutt’s cell phone records obtained by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette through the Freedom of Information Act, Nutt spoke with Shapiro just after Larry Coker had left the school.

According to records, Nutt called Shapiro at 10:17 a.m. on Dec. 7, 2006 and the call lasted 30 minutes. Nutt then hung up and called his agent, Jimmy Sexton, before contacting Shapiro again that same day. Nutt also called Hernandez four times in a span of four hours that day.

Nutt also spoke with UM assistant AD Tony Hernandez shortly after speaking with Shapiro, so feel free to put two-and-two together on that one.

Does it mean Nutt's in trouble? Not really. It's just one more example of just how involved Nevin Shapiro was in the affairs of Canes football. It's becoming harder and harder for anyone related to the program to claim otherwise.
