Nutt's Fate Hanging In The Balance

Houston Nutt

Arkansas coach Houston Nutt is scheduled to attend an announcement tonight regarding the future of the Razorbacks football program.

University officials won't comment on the nature of the announcement, other than to say that Nutt, Chancellor John White and outgoing athletic director Frank Broyles will be on hand.

The Razorbacks lost their first three Southeastern Conference games after a turmoil-filled offseason then rebounded to finish the regular season 8-4. They knocked LSU out of the nation's Number-1 spot with a 50-48, triple-overtime victory over the Tigers on Friday.

Two weeks ago, university officials strongly denied reports that this would be Nutt's last season as Arkansas' coach. On Sunday, Nutt said White and Broyles wanted him to return, but that more talks with university officials were forthcoming.
