Washington, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on the death of former University of Arkansas football coach and athletic director, Frank Broyles:

"Today, college football lost one of the greats. Few people could match Frank Broyles's dedication to the University of Arkansas: 57 years of devoted, distinguished service. In that time, he not only led teams to multiple Southwest Conference titles and a national championship; he also built an athletic department that was the envy of the South. Everyone involved in Arkansas athletics today owes him a huge debt of gratitude. I join Razorback fans in extending my deepest condolences to the Broyles family and the University of Arkansas."
