LITTLE ROCK (AP) -Arkansas running backs coach Danny Nutt is resigning because of a recurrence of bleeding from his brain stem.
Nutt, 46, is the younger brother of head coach Houston Nutt. Danny Nutt, who had brain surgery in 1998, is currently receiving treatment for what the university called ``a serious condition that includes bleeding from his brain stem.''
The school said Nutt would not coach this season and was unlikely to coach in the future. A news conference is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, when Houston Nutt was expected to meet with reporters.
Danny Nutt has been on his brother's staff since Houston Nutt took over at Arkansas before the 1998 season. The Razorbacks open the 2007 season Sept. 1 against Troy. Danny Nutt was also an assistant for his brother at Boise State and Murray State.
