Former Ole Miss coach Nutt's lawsuit vs. school dismissed

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.

Nutt filed the lawsuit against Ole Miss in July during Southeastern Conference Media Days. The Rebels' former coach - who led the program from 2008 to '11 - was alleging a breach of his severance agreement because of false statements he says school officials made during an ongoing NCAA investigation.

The lawsuit alleged then-Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze and other school officials created a ''false narrative'' in an effort to place primary blame on Nutt for the NCAA investigation instead of Freeze.
