Statement reads: “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.”

“Frank Broyles had a profound impact on college football as a legendary player, coach, television commentator and administratior. He touched the lives of so many during his years of service to the University of Arkansas as football coach and athletics director. Our thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends.”

 

Greg Byrne

 

“Coach Broyles will forever be one of the greatest in college football, and his energy and enthusiasm for the University of Arkansas and college football was unmatched. We send our deepest sympathies and prayers.”

 

Bill Clinton

 

“I got to know Frank Broyles well in late 1977, his first year as athletic director for the University of Arkansas and my first year as attorney general, when I represented him and Coach Holtz in the well-known and controversial Orange Bowl case which culminated in one of the greatest victories in Arkansas football history. I worked with him throughout my tenure as governor, and we kept in touch afterward. He was a leader of character, intelligence, and determination, and on his watch Arkansas became a leader in many sports. A big part of his legacy came later in his efforts to find a cure for Alzheimer’s and his support for families struggling with it, including his work with the US Senate special committee on Alzheimer’s which Hillary helped to form. I’ll always be grateful to have known him and called him my friend.”

Broyles Award

 

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Coach Broyles. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Broyles family in this most difficult time. Today, we mourn the loss of a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. Coach Broyles was a star collegiate football player, legendary head coach, visionary athletic director, charismatic broadcaster, and a passionate advocate for Alzheimer’s caregivers.
Coach Broyles always recognized the importance of the assistant coach and had an amazing ability to select and mentor outstanding assistant coaches. He molded many into the greatest head coaches in the game of football. He leaves behind an incredible legacy that we at the Broyles Award will continue sharing for decades to come.”
