I didn't stay up late enough last night to see the documents supplied by UALR Chancellor Joel Anderson on Athletic Director Chris Peterson's abrupt resignation after 14 years and some notable successes raising money for facilities.

You'll see the two letters reveal little about underlying causes — if any — for the sudden departure. I'd be surprised if there wasn't a precipitating event of some sort. Personnel related records enjoy protection from disclosure under Arkansas's public records law unless they form the basis for suspension or firing. Peterson resigned. Given the ongoing review of the UALR baseball program — and given Joel Anderson's solid-gold record — I'd expect further information on relevant managerial circumstances, if there be any. Coverage in the Democrat-Gazette this morning made a bare reference to some unspecified recent event and quoted Peterson as having no immediate plans. Both contribute to the appearance of troubled waters.
