Nutt Steps Down After 10 Seasons

Arkansas football coach Houston Nutt tendered his resignation on Monday night during a press conference at the Broyles Athletic Complex.

Nutt, who was hired in 1997 and coached the Razorbacks for 10 seasons and eight bowl appearances, said he was stepping down to help bring a fractured Arkansas fan base back together following a tumultuous last year.

The team will be coached in its upcoming bowl game by defensive coordinator Reggie Herring. The entire coaching staff other than Nutt will take part in the bowl game.

Nutt said that he has not accepted an offer to coach at another program, but said "I still feel like I have some coaching in me."

The search for a new coach will be handled by incoming athletic director Jeff Long. No timeline on finding a replacement for Nutt, who led the team to a victory over No. 1 LSU last Friday, was set.
