Former Razorbacks coach Nutt gets good news on reports

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Former Arkansas running backs coach
Danny Nutt has received an encouraging report from doctors on the
brain condition that led him to resign his position last week,
Razorbacks head coach Houston Nutt said.

Danny Nutt, 46, had brain surgery in 1998 for bleeding in his
brain stem, a condition that persists.

Houston Nutt said Monday that his brother visited doctors in
Little Rock last week and that he is back home resting in
Fayetteville.

"He got a good report," Houston Nutt said. "There is no more
fresh bleeding. So they want to wait two and a half or three weeks,
go back and do another MRI or brain scan and decide then if they
need surgery."

"Right now, they are trying to keep him still and keep him
healthy. He can walk a little bit and try to get some things going
physically. So overall, that's really good news," Houston Nutt
said.

The Razorbacks have named Tim Horton as running backs coach.
Horton was a Razorbacks wide from 1986-89 and was the offensive
coordinator at Air Force.
