Mike Larrabee Resigns as Arkansas Head Coach

Mike Larrabee has resigned from his position as head coach at Arkansas, the school announced in a statement Sunday.

The Razorbacks' season & Larrabee's tenure ended with a 1-0 loss to Alabama on Sunday. The defeat capped off a weekend that saw the Hogs be outscored 24-3 and a season where they registered just one conference victory and were the only SEC team not to make the conference tournament.

Since his hiring in 2009, Larrabee was never able to lead the Hogs to a relevant position in the power-packed SEC. In his six seasons at the helm of the program, Larrabee registered a 149-181 overall record, but a dismal 38-114 record in conference play. His team did make two NCAA tournament appearances, in 2012 and 2013.

Barring a completely-surprising move in the next several years, it's likely this is the last time that an SEC head coaching position will be available for a number of years. A national search to fill Larrabee's position will begin immediately.
