Report: Nolan Richardson makes Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame
One of the all-time coaching great is getting his moment in the sport's hallowed hall.
Twenty years after he took Arkansas to its only national title, Nolan Richardson will earn among the greatest honors in basketball.
Yahoo Sports reports the 72-year-old will be named as a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. The official release of all the names in the 2014 class will come Monday. The Razorbacks reached the 1990, 1994 and 1995 Final Four under his tutelage. Richardson's college basketball coaching career finished with 508-206 record. He spent five years at Tulsa (winning the 1981 NIT title) before coaching the Hogs from 1985-2002.
Richardson won 390 games in Fayetteville.
Most recently, Richardson coached the Tulsa Shock, a WNBA franchise.
Earlier this season Arkansas brought back Richardson, former coach Eddie Sutton and president Bill Clinton for a big ceremony to celebrate the history of Arkansas hoops, including the 1993-94 title team.
