Prior to the Jets, Nunn worked with CLV (2016), NYG (2010-15), TB (2009), GB (2005-08), MIA (2001-02, 04) and WAS (2003). He has been part of six top 10 defenses for three different teams and 19 different players have produced at least 5.0 sacks in a season under him. Of those 19, 11 matched or established their single-season career bests while coached by him. Among the players coached by Nunn in the NFL are Hall of Famers Bruce Smith, who broke the NFL career sacks record under him in 2003, and Jason Taylor, who established a single-season best 18.5 sacks in 2002, as well as Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck, both of whom registered multiple 10+ sack seasons with him.

Before entering the coaching ranks in the NFL, Nunn spent 12 years coaching at the collegiate level, including eight seasons as the head coach (1992-99) at Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, GA after spending his first season at the school (1991) as the defensive coordinator. Among his other stops were coaching defensive ends at Tennessee, where he coached current Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers, and one season as the defensive line coach at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (1988).
