Former University of Tulsa football coach David Rader could be headed for a fourth tour of duty in the Southeastern Conference.
Mississippi football coach Houston Nutt has targeted Rader to be the Rebels' new co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, according to a source familiar with the situation. Rader would replace Kent Austin, a former Ole Miss offensive coordinator who was recently named Cornell's head coach.
Rader began his college coaching career in the SEC as an assistant coach at Alabama from 1983-85. He also spent one season as an assistant at Mississippi State and returned to the SEC for his most recent coaching job as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Alabama from 2003-2006.
Rader, a Rogers High School and TU graduate, was the Golden Hurricane's head coach from 1988-99. He returned to Tulsa to go into business following his last coaching job.
