Jimmy Dykes out as Razorback women's basketball coach

  • RESIGNED: Jimmy Dykes.
After saying earlier this week that he hoped to continue as Razorback women's basketball coach, Jimmy Dykes has resigned, reports KATV .

Athletic Director Jeff Long's statement said in pertinent part, "I support his decision."

Nobody mentioned the incident in which several team members knelt earlier this season during the playing of the National Anthem. It enraged many in Arkansas, many of whom almost certainly had never seen a women's basketball game. Absent that episode would Dykes have survived a three-year record of 43-49? We'll never know. I'll still say Dykes handled that incident well.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
