Multiple sources are reporting that Arkansas State has hired former LSU coach John Brady. Brady replaces Dickey Nutt, who resigned after 13 years leading the Indians.
Brady was fired by LSU in the middle of the season, with the Tigers struggling to an 8-13 start.

There was some recent rumblings that Nolan Richardson, the long time Arkansas coach, would get the job.. but talks fell through.
