South Alabama Coach Ronnie Arrow steps down before UALR game

UALR resumes Sun Belt Conference play on Saturday by facing an opponent without its head coach. South Alabama's Ronnie Arrow has stepped down.

Still waiting for some more information, but multiple sources in Alabama now are reporting that South Alabama Coach Ronnie Arrow has stepped down as the Jaguars Head Coach.

This comes just before UALR goes to Mobile to resume Sun Belt Conference play on Saturday.

And Matt Weaver is dominating this story on Twitter. Read his posts by CLICKING HERE. This is an especially interesting one:

It appears that Arrow decided to retire after recently becoming the winningest coach in Sun Belt Conference history. He was in his second run as South Alabama's coach, replacing John Pelphrey several years ago.

South Alabama is 5-5 on the season and coming off a victory over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. The Jaguars are 2-0 in the Sun Belt Conference after sweeping the Florida trip (Atlantic and International) in late November.

UALR is 8-5 overall and 2-0 in the Sun Belt Conference. The Trojans also faced a team in its first game after a coaching change last season. Under far different circumstances, Ken McDonald was replaced by Ray Harper. UALR lost that game in Bowling Green, Ky.

The press conference started at 3 p.m. Arrow and assistant coach Jeff Price, who is taking over, apparently did not attend. We hope to have more details in a little while.
