Grant Hall has a good follow to our exclusive earlier today. It sounds like it could happen as it should — a fond farewell with an easy transition for a towering figure in Arkansas modern history.

And he mentions Bo Mattingly’s report tonight that advances something we’d hinted at, too. Changes could be coming on down the line. Might Houston Nutt’s contract be bought out? He and his family sure made a mess of player relations. What’s Stan Heath’s future?


When we first started working this story, a primary source said he wouldn’t be surprised to see a “clean house” by the end of the year. Stay tuned.

Thanks for listening to the washed-up hacks at the free tabloid in Little Rock. We won’t bore you with the list of exclusives you read here first.


Help to Keep Great Journalism Alive in Arkansas

Arkansas Times needs to raise $25,000 to help fund our new agriculture and environment reporter, who comes to us with help from Report For America. Without a dedicated agriculture reporter, the stories of our state’s primary industry and its 243,000 workers remain untold. This isn’t just about news—it’s about recognizing the backbone of Arkansas’s economy. Every dollar you donate helps us reach our goal and keeps agriculture at the forefront of our community conversation. Act now; the stories of 19 million acres of forest and countless hardworking Arkansans depend on it.
