USM coach close to home

Southern Miss coach Scott Berry is back near his old stomping grounds this week.
Berry grew up in Neosho, Mo., about 65 miles north of Fayetteville.
“I’m very familiar with Hog country and coming here,” Berry said Thursday during an interview on the SiriusXM program Playbook. "When I was growing up and coming through here it was just a little two-lane Highway 71 with a bunch of stoplights through Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale and Fayetteville.
“It’s fun to come back close to home.”
Berry said he might try to visit an old hangout while he’s in town.
“I asked our bus driver, who is from here, if AQ Chicken House was still around and he said it was. I said, 'Still good fried chicken?'He said, ‘Coach, it’s the best there is,’” Berry said. “If I do get time I’ll go over there and visit AQ Chicken. That was one of the spots growing up that we might have visited when I was a kid.”
