Broyles checked into the hospital Friday to undergo treatment to correct an irregular heartbeat that has persisted the past month.
Arkansas sports information director Kevin Trainor said Broyles' heart is back in rhythm and the 79-year-old is expected to return to the office today.
Broyles had been on blood thinners since October, when he was hospitalized with an irregular heartbeat after his wife, Barbara, died due to complications from Alzheimer's disease. Doctors prescribed blood thinners hoping it would help regulate Broyles' heartbeat. But after 30 days without improvement, another hospitalization was scheduled so doctors could try other medicines and procedures.
Trainor said medication didn't work so Broyles underwent a 10-minute procedure, called an electrical cardio version, in which a mild shock is applied to the heart to get it back into rhythm.
The latest hospital stint was Broyles' fourth in little more than a year. He has been on medication to help regulate his heart for the past 10 years.
When Broyles returns to the office, one of his first orders of business is expected to be his annual, season-ending evaluation of coach Houston Nutt. The seventh-year coach said Monday afternoon he still hadn't met with Broyles since the Hogs' 5-6 season came to an end with Friday's 43-14 loss to No. 14 LSU.
On Sunday, Nutt declined to talk about the future of his coaching staff during his final press conference. He said he wanted to wait until Broyles' evaluation.
"I haven't talked to him yet," Nutt said Sunday. "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."
Poole Undergoes Surgery
Arkansas tailback Dedrick Poole underwent successful surgery in Cincinnati on Monday to repair a torn hamstring he sustained on Oct. 16. The injury was much more severe than the Razorbacks first believed.
The junior's rehabilitation process will last through spring practices and the summer. Poole played in six games and was fifth on the team in rushing (115 yards).
Weber said other players will be evaluated in the next few weeks to determine if other procedures will be necessary in the offseason. Tight end Jared Hicks will likely need surgery to correct a shoulder injury that bothered him all season.
Arkansas finished the regular season with the Southeastern Conference's third-ranked scoring offense (29.8), finishing behind Florida and Auburn. The Razorbacks held the SEC's fourth-ranked rushing offense (187.4 yards) and fifth-best passing offense (210.5). Arkansas was sixth in total offense (397.9 yards).
Individually, quarterback Matt Jones was second in the conference in total offense (245 yards), fourth in passing yards (188.5) and seventh in passing efficiency (132.8 rating). Defensive end Jeb Huckeba was sixth in the SEC in sacks (6 1/2) and in tackles for losses (12 1/2).
