LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -Nolan Richardson says he's still in talks with Arkansas State about the school's coaching vacancy after a quick visit to Jonesboro, where the school's campus is located.
``We had some conversations yesterday, and it went well,'' Richardson said Friday. ``There's nothing that's been done or said or anything, other than to continue to work on whatever they need to work on - and to show me what I needed to be able to accept.''
Richardson said he went to Jonesboro on Thursday. On Friday, he was back in the Fayetteville area, where he lives. He said he hadn't been to the Jonesboro area in about 14 years.
``It's very progressive looking, and kind of reminds me of this area - other than the fact that we're in northwest (Arkansas) and they're in northeast,'' the 66-year-old Richardson said.
Richardson didn't go into details about his talks with Arkansas State, but described them as ongoing.
Richardson has been out of college coaching since being fired by Arkansas in 2002. He led the Razorbacks to the 1994 national championship.
The Arkansas State job came open when Dickey Nutt resigned last month.
