Danny Nutt Steps Down

Arkansas Running Back Coach Danny Nutt is stepping down it was announced today by his brother, Arkansas Head Coach, Houston Nutt. His stepping down is related to Health Problems.

From the UA press release:

Danny Nutt is currently under treatment for a serious condition that includes bleeding from his brain stem. The condition first became critical in December of 1998 when Nutt was hospitalized for more than a month. He missed coaching in the 1999 Comp USA Florida Citrus Bowl while undergoing surgery and treatment. Danny missed spring practice in 2000 after a relapse, but returned to the sidelines for the fall campaign.

In recent months, Nutt suffered another recurrence of the brain stem bleeding. His condition will not allow him to coach this season and will likely prohibit him from returning to the football field as a coach in the future.
