Jim Harris with The Buzz: Jimmy Dykes, Recruiting Arkansas, The Final Four


Each Tuesday Jim Harris appears on 103.7 The Buzz FM at 11 a.m. during the The Zone with Justin Acri and Pat Bradley. This week the crew talks about Jimmy Dykes.

This week during Jim’s appearance, he and the guys at the station talked about new Razorback women’s basketball head coach, Jimmy Dykes, what the hire could mean for recruiting in-state talent to the program and some thoughts on the Final Four match ups this weekend.

Dykes has said the days of girls leaving Arkansas to play top-level women’s basketball at out-of-state programs has come to a halt with his hiring. Time will tell.

Here is Doc Harper’s column on the hiring of Jimmy Dykes from Monday. An excerpt is below:

I’m glad my gut reaction didn’t last long.

When I first heard on Sunday morning that Arkansas hired Jimmy Dykes to replace Tom Collen as the head coach of the women’s basketball program, my first thoughts were something along the lines of, “A broadcaster? Jeff Long hired a media personality as a head coach? He spent half a million dollars buying out Tom Collen to replace him with a local guy who’s not even a coach?

“Well, hey, if this works out, maybe I have a better shot at being a Razorbacks coach than I ever imagined!”

But once you take a step back and look at the bigger picture of women’s basketball and the Razorback athletic department, this really does make quite a bit of sense.
