Arkansas expected to hire Gragg as new athletic director

Arkansas expected to hire Gragg as new athletic director”

- A spokesman said Thursday that candidates are still being vetted for the University of Arkansas' vacant athletics director position. Arkansas officials eventually said no decision had been made yet.

University of Tulsa athletic director Derrick Gragg is expected to be named the new athletic director at the University of Arkansas, according to a source.

In 2003-06, Gragg was an administrator at Arkansas under Frank Broyles, hired as an associate athletic director and promoted to senior associate athletic director after three years.

FOX23 expects the Arkansas search to go into next week.

John Moss with KTUL, the ABC station in Tulsa, says he has confirmed that Tulsa University's Derrick Gragg has yet to interview for the position.

Gragg is a native of Huntsville, Ala. and has been in athletic administration since 1993, at his alma mater Vanderbilt where he played wide receiver.

Gragg earned his Ph.D.in higher education administration at the University of Arkansas in 2004.

Arkansas has four candidates now in consideration for its athletic director position, a source familiar with the search has confirmed to SEC Country.

Gragg would replace Jeff Long, who was sacked two weeks ago after he'd been with the Razorbacks since 2008. She informed former football coach Bret Bielema of his termination on November 24, at which time she stated she would be leading the search for a new head football coach.
