Nolan Richardson Reports He's Talked with ASU About Coaching Job

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) - Nolan Richardson said he's talking with Arkansas State officials about the school's basketball coaching vacancy.

Richardson has been out of college coaching since being fired by Arkansas in 2002.  He made his remarks after a luncheon today in North Little Rock.

The job has been open since Dickey Nutt resigned two weeks ago.

Richardson said he has had dialogue with ASU, and plans to visit some more with the school's athletic director and chancellor.

Richardson coached for several years at the University of Arkansas, leading the school to an NCAA national championship in 1994.
