Dana Altman stepped down from his new position as Arkansas Razorbacks hoops coach less than 24 hours after accepting the job, saying that returning to Creighton was "in his family's best interest."
Altman has coached the Bluejays for 13 years and said he made the decision to return to the Omaha, Neb., school after talking to Creighton's athletic director Bruce Rasmussen, then his family.
"After I was sure he would allow me to return, I talked to my wife," Altman said. "This is something I'm doing for my family. I wish I would have come to that decision earlier."Aren't you supposed to check with them before you make a move like this? Just a thought, Dana. But this looks even worse for Frank Broyles: not only did he screw up royally by firing former coach Stan Heath in the first place in an effort to get Texas A&M coach Billy Gillispie to leave College Station, but he can't even get his sixth or seventh option to stick around. If Broyles wasn't scheduled to retire after next football season, Hogs fans would be calling for his head. Now, they'll just have to grin and bear it.
