Frank Broyles Checks into Fayetteville Hospital with Irregular Heartbeat

NOVEMBER 26, 2004 - Posted at 8:12 a.m. CST

 

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Arkansas Athletic Director Frank Broyles says he won't be at today's Arkansas-LSU football game.  He'll be in a hospital instead.  Broyles says he plans to check himself into a hospital for treatment of an irregular heartbeat, and expects to stay at least through the weekend.

Broyles, a former Arkansas football coach, said he doesn't plan to watch the game because it might cause too much stress.  He said he'll wait to find out the score after the game.

The 79-year-old was treated at Washington Regional Medical Center in October for the same problem and has been taking medication for a month to help regulate his heartbeat.  He said he has been taking blood thinners, but it has not worked.
