It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Coach Frank Broyles. He passed peacefully in his home surrounded by his loved ones.
For 92 years John Franklin Broyles lived nothing short of a remarkable life. To all who would listen, Frank Broyles was quick to proclaim, in his unmistakable and infectious southern tone, that he was blessed to live ‘A Charmed Life’.
For more than five decades, he served the University of Arkansas and all citizens of his adopted home state in his role as a coach, administrator and goodwill ambassador for his beloved Razorbacks.
We wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to all those who helped contribute to his charmed life. Whether you were one of his players, coaches, colleagues or friends, a Razorback fan or fellow caregiver, you were an integral part of his fairy tale story. To his family, he was quite simply, our hero.
Broyles led Arkansas’ football program from 1958-76, winning the national title in 1964 and seven conference championships. He compiled a career head coaching record of 149-62-6. He spent one year at Missouri before taking over the Razorbacks’ program.
After his coaching career, Broyles went on to be the men’s athletic director, a position he held until 2007.
Rest in peace, Frank.
