Woo pig sooie: Cowboys interview Houston Nutt

070426_nutt_hmed_1p-nbcsports-story-612This is getting ridiculous now. Jerry talking to all his old cronies?

If you have one of those red plastic pig hats, you’ve got a shot at a job with the Cowboys.

According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys interviewed former University of Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt recently.

There’s some uncertainty about the future of tight ends coach John Garrett, the brother of head coach Jason Garrett. John Garrett’s interviewing for the Delaware job.

Nutt was the head coach at Arkansas from 1998-2007, which was followed by a stint at Ole Miss. He has no NFL experience.
