Statement from President Clinton on the Passing of Eddie Sutton

Most people knew Eddie Sutton as a basketball genius who won more than 800 games, made the Hall of Fame, and was the first coach to take four different schools to the NCAA tournament, including nine of his eleven Arkansas teams, earning him a special place in the hearts of all Arkansans. I'll always remember him as a good man, who cared about his players, got the best out of them and prepared them well for life after basketball. And I will always love him for being a ferocious, loyal friend. Our hearts go out to his three sons and their families, and all those whose lives he touched.
