It's official that UALR men's basketball coach Chris Beard is leaving for UNLV after a one-year 30-5 record in leading Little Rock to a first-round NCAA tournament victory.

Athletic Director Chasse Conque has wished Beard well and said Little Rock is better positioned for his year here and that he'll move quickly to fill the opening.

UNLV will have a $200,000 payout over two years to buy out Beard's contract. He made about $260,000. UNLV paid its recently fired coach $750,000 and reportedly offered $1.5 million to someone who turned down the job.

No word on what UALR had offered Beard to get him to stay.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
