JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

This season will be Houston Nutt's last at Ole Miss, and Athletic Director Pete Boone will step down in 2012. That announcement came at an afternoon news conference.

"Out goal is compete for championships, and we are not making progress in that regard" said Boone. "It's time for our team to have new leadership and a new direction."

Boone won't be involved in hiring Nutt's replacement. That will be handled by a committee headed by former Ole Miss great Archie Manning and Mike Linn of Federal Express.
