U of A Plans To Meet To Rename Bud Walton Arena


The University of Arkansas System Board of Trustees plans to talk about naming the court at Bud Walton Arena after Nolan Richardson.

The Arkansas Senate put forward a resolution earlier this month requesting the university name the court after Richardson.

It’s something that’s been controversial for years now, after he was fired in 2002 amid a public feud with university officials.

The former coach has a long list of accomplishments at Arkansas, including leading the team to it’s first and only national title in 1994.

The Arkansas Board of Trustees is scheduled to meet at noon today in Hot Springs.
