That’s over a million more than Houston Nutt in half the time.

Good riddance, poor contract negotiation. No big deal though, the RF is flush and hasn't tapped the reserves in years.

no doubt.  I don't even want to think about how many years I will have to work to make what he's getting in a month for not working.

of course his pales in comparison to what the bank execs got for crashing the market in 2008

Why is his career over?  He could coach another 20 years or more.  He's not getting a head coach job at a top 40 program until he proves himself, but there's plenty of time for that.  Especially, if he learned from his mistakes here.

maybe not completely over, but he is going to be starting close to the bottom again.  I doubt he gets a job at a P5 program and it will be more than the 3 years left on his buyout before he does.

That "risk" was more than mitigated by the $30+ million he received for his five years of being Bret Bielema here.

Except that he wsn't rewarded with that huge buyout until after he went 6-6 in 2014 and beat a whipdog Texas in the Texas Bowl.

he already had a huge buyout, the only thing that changed was he got an extension.

in essense it was before and after the exact same contract.  he gets his base salary prorated throughout the length of the contract.  so when his base went from 3.2 to 3.85 per year, so did his buyout.

Did we get him to jump or did he want to get out from Pappy's shadow and we provided a great opportunity?  A down program one year removed from an 11 win season.

Actually, he would have been owed only 1 million when fired last year under his original 6 year contract.

EDIT: the link reporting that 1 million buyout was apparently incorrect. 

But the question remains, why reward a 7-6 season with a raise, extension, and a higher one-sided buyout?  Totally unnecessary.

Fair ? He risked his career ? He sat on his backside and made excuses bc he knew he had the buyout to fall back on. All he did was destroy our program. He doesn't deserve anyone's pity. He's a sorry excuse for a human being.

yeah, a 20% raise and a big extension was a big much for winning 2 conference games in 2 years.

I think Long and/or the BOT jumped the gun just a tad on that one.

you can be a good coach and still lose in the SEC.  the level of competition here is unlike any other conference.

of course that doesn't excuse coastal carolina etc.

Dude is NOT a good coach.. I'd be willing to bet that he's either severely concussed from his playing days or darned near retarded. Geez some people.

Now you find Coastal or how about Toledo ? Brett is retarded or concussed. Had no business taking this job. Should have been fired at the end of season one. Too many supporters from his "friends"

well Trump and boys removed all the safeguards of that happening again, little as they were , so just stick around for a few years.  You will get a lesson in those that don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it, not that it matters i guess.  Hawkings says we are a doomed planet--and he is a genius and as non political as you can get.  Won't matter to us but if you love your grandkids you might be a little worried.  Not that anyone wants to think about stuff like that, lol.

He received the contract extension in February 2015, after the 2014 season concluded.

2013: 3 wins
2014: 7 wins
Early 2015: Contract Extension
2015: 8 wins

Downhill from there.


Might wanna look up the definition for "progression."

I am no Bielema fan by any means. God Almighty am I glad the dude is gone. But "regression" wasn't rewarded here. Your post is just inaccurate. Had he won 7 in 2013 and then 3 in 2014 and still received an extension, then yes, regression would have been rewarded. As it stands, progression was rewarded, just too early.

Bielema has stated he's been contacted by some NFL teams about coaching. As an assistant coach. And assistant NFL coaches do make big money. So his career is not over.

The career isnt over if he chooses it not to be. However having 10+ million sitting in the bank collecting interest doesn't always compel a person to be hungry for any job that may come about.

Makes the job more marketable to future coaches.  Win big or get rich trying...

Problem isn't with the way Arkansas negotiated the contract.  The problem is this is what the market is demanding right now.

His career isn't over.  He still garners a lot of respect in the coaching circles.  He isn't going to get a head SEC gig any time soon, but he can get a job with a lower tier school (the FL schools seem to be where coaches go to rehab their careers) or jump to the NFL like you said.

Losing at Arkansas doesn't kill anybody's career.  Kinda says a lot about our program...

Until 16 games ago, a lot of people on here were happy. Few people foresaw the meltdown. Line problems gave a few people a wiff. But, most were happy. If it weren’t for injuries he might still be here. Same way Nutt hung on for so long.
