But Nutt said Sunday he'd like to wait until meeting with Arkansas athletic director Frank Broyles when asked about the chances of his coaches staying on staff again.
"I'd like to wait until coach Broyles and his evaluation on everything," Nutt said. "I haven't talked to him yet. I know how hard our guys work. I'm very partial to my staff. I know how much they care and how much they love these guys and how hard they work. It's tough. We're in a tough business.
"There are some not happy with me right now. The only thing I know to do is roll up my sleeves and go back to work and do better."
Nutt plans to meet with Broyles and discuss the Hogs' 5-6 season as soon as the 79-year-old is released from the hospital. Broyles checked into Washington Regional Medical Center on Friday for treatment to help correct an irregular heartbeat that has persisted for more than a month.
Doctors hoped blood thinners would help regulate Broyles' heartbeat after he checked into the hospital in October shortly after his wife, Barbara, died due to complications from Alzheimer's disease. But after 30 days without improvement, a hospital stay was scheduled so doctors could try other medicines.
Arkansas sports information director Kevin Trainor said Broyles could be released as early as today.
Nutt believed he would meet with Broyles today or Tuesday and said Arkansas' offseason "always starts there."
"I know how hard our guys work and how much it hurts them," Nutt said about the disappointing season. "Sometimes you just have to put blinders on and go to work. We all have to get better, starting with me. Got to get better. We all can improve. We've got to improve and get our guys in a position to win.
"I think the worst thing you can do is sit around and you feel sorry for yourself and listen to too many people. Naturally, there's a tendency to be negative. There's a tendency in today's society to be negative. Can't do it.
"We've got too many people depending on us. We've got too many 18-, 19-year-olds waiting for you to show them the way."
