Dickey Albert Nutt (born June 13, 1959) is an American college basketball coach. He most recently coached at Southeast Missouri State University before being let go after the 2014-15 season. Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, he became the head coach of Arkansas State University in 1995 and resigned on February 19, 2008, ending his thirteen years as head coach just 3 victories short of the all-time win record for the school. In June 2007, Nutt had said that his future with the school was uncertain after receiving a one-year contract with the school.
Nutt had been coaching at Arkansas State since 1987, when he started as an assistant at the university. Prior to that, he had spent two years as an assistant coach at Oklahoma State. He led the Indians, now the Red Wolves, to the NCAA Tournament once, winning the Sun Belt Conference tournament to secure the conference's automatic bid in 1999. Arkansas State received a 15 seed, and was eliminated by Utah in the first round.
Nutt played collegiately at Oklahoma State from 1977 to 1982. After graduating, he began his coaching career in the high school ranks as an assistant coach at Stillwater High School in Oklahoma.
In March 2009, Nutt was named as the head basketball coach at Southeast Missouri State University.
Nutt's brother, Houston Nutt, was the head football coach at the University of Mississippi. Another brother, Dennis Nutt, was previously head coach for Texas State University and a former professional basketball player.
Nutt also has three children, two sons and a daughter. His oldest son Logan played basketball for Ole Miss before transferring to Southeast Missouri State in December 2009 joining his younger brother, Lucas, who played for his father at Southeast Missouri State through 2014.
