Former Arkansas coach, AD Broyles dies at 92

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Frank Broyles, who guided the University of Arkansas to its lone national football championship and later molded the overall program as its athletic director, has died at the age of 92.
    
Broyles died Monday from complications of Alzheimer's disease, according to a statement from his family.
    
Broyles won almost 71 percent of his games as head football coach with the Razorbacks for 19 years.
    
He became the school's athletic director in 1974 while still the football coach, eventually retiring from the gridiron to focus on administrative duties following the 1976 season.
    
As athletic director, Broyles led an overhaul and upgrade of Arkansas' facilities - as well as leading the school in its move to the Southeastern Conference.
    
Following his coaching career, Broyles - who earned a spot in the National Football Foundation's College Hall of Fame - served as an analyst on ABC's college football telecasts.
