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 s
tatement 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.
THE ANTHEM: The Dykes era will be remembered for this.
