Incoming athletic director Jeff Long has interviewed Clemson coach Tommy Bowden about the possibility of replacing Houston Nutt at Arkansas, sources told The Morning News on Monday.
A source close to the situation described the talks as preliminary, but the discussions are believed to have heated up to the point where Bowden is now considered the leading candidate to be Arkansas' next coach.
A source told The Post and Courier (of Charleston, S.C.) on Monday that Bowden is expected to interview either today or Wednesday in Fayetteville.
Stanley Reed, the chairman of Arkansas' Board of Trustees, didn't want to comment when reached by The Morning News on Monday night.
But when asked if board members had been consulted about Bowden, Reed said, "The board was consulted, not for a yes or no vote. Just for advice as to generally how the board felt, just to get feed back."
