Frank Broyles, Joe Gibbs' mentor, resigns as AD

Frank Broyles resigned as athletic director at the University of Arkansas. The 82 year old Broyles has been affiliated with the school for half a century. Joe Gibbs and Jimmie Johnson were Razorback assist coaches under Broyles. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones played for the coach.

In his book Racing To Win, Gibbs spoke of the role that Broyles played in his coaching development. Broyles was a master at selling his program to players, a lesson Gibbs would put to good use in his career.
