Arkansas wasted absolutely no time firing Bret Bielema off into the sun after the Razorbacks' 48-45 home loss to Missouri on Friday night.
In fact, Bielema was told he was done as he was WALKING OFF THE FIELD:
“I was informed coming off the field that I am no longer the coach of Arkansas,” Bielema told reporters. “I’ve never been let go in my entire life, so this is a first for me, but I’ve had quite a few coaches that have moved on always kind of say, whether it’s right, wrong or indifferent, you want to leave the place better than when you got here, and I know that’s happened.”
Bielema, who finished 29-34 in five seasons at Arkansas, is a potential candidate for the newly open head coaching slot at Nebraska. Mike Riley was fired on Saturday morning.
