Did you know that the former home of Arkansas Razorbacks legend Frank Broyles and his wife, Barbara, recently sold?
The 5,948-SF home sits on 3.3 acres on Canterbury Road in Fayetteville and fetched a price of $959,400. The six-bedroom, five-bathroom home was designed by equally legendary architect Fay Jones, for whom the School of Architecture & Design at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville is named.
The buyers of the home were Troy and Anne Henry of Jonesboro. The seller was Betsy Arnold, daughter of Frank and Barbara Broyles and CEO of the Frank & Barbara Broyles Legacy Foundation.
During Broyles’ career as football coach of the Razorbacks, he won 144 games in 19 seasons, including the 1964 national championship and seven SWC titles. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1983.
Broyles, who was athletic director years after leaving coaching, died at 92 in 2017. Barbara died in 2004 at 79.
