He said that Jeff will be fired. If not it will be because he is taking another job. WOW!

Rumor is JL isn't allowed to have a say in the new hire. Why would anyone think he'd still be here next year?

I think Jl is AD in name only and may introduce the coach but not much else.

Anybody else shocked that the buyout IS $12M and not the $5M later reported.

No, I’ve said it all along.  I still think they may compromise around $9M

For those that can't listen.  JL and BB is out.  Fans don't be anxious, powers ARE absolutely making changes.

Grant pretty emphatic Gus is a real possibility.

I'm sorry, did he give any reason he said it is $12m? Unless he's been given the info from Long, Varady, or Cornrich, which isn't happening, then he's blowing smoke.

According to Grant Hall.  Nothing against him but I've heard anything from 5-15 million and nothing that causes me to give more credit to one source over another.

He said there was another component with the foundation that pushes it back up to $12M that could/should get negotiated down. 

I think they're going to pay whatever to punt these two guys, it's just JL is an idiot (that's my observation not Grant's)

Said if there would have been a straw poll it would have been 8-2 against Long.  Didn't have to take it because Bobbit said he'd fix everything.  Thank god!!

So, President Bobbitt is on record as saying the buyout is $12m, do we have any recording of this?

No he said in addition to the $5.7M there was another component through the foundation that pushes it up to $12M.  My first thought was an annuity like all the other coaches for the past 30 years but man that's a big arse annuity so it might be something else

Grant's not getting this info from Bobbit but I've known GH for 30 years and while he's a little odd to me, he's been around forever and has tons of contacts much like Mike Irwin.

He was the sports editor @ NWA Times, I think.

He and Rick were the original hosts of Razorback talk radio when I was in school back in the early 80's.  Think it was 90 mins every monday.  no internet.  Still remember anxiously listening every week for the search to replace eddie sutton.  it was all Rollie Massimino up until they hired nolan, from what i remember.

So it wasn't Bobbitt, and it's relying on information from a private entity that isn't subject to a FOI?? I'll wait for further confirmation, because that won't be a plus for those wishing for dismissal.

IMO he referenced Bobbitt when talking about the $12M.  He was talking a bit in circles

A caller asked him if Jeff Long was 'fired' and Grant said 'basically yes'.  Said Jeff will be around until January and then leave for another job.  JL was told to go find a new job.

Yeah Grant's got the attention span of a nat.

He did say that Bobbit assured the BOT that they will get this all taken care of . 

Grant said Steinz has accepted the challenge of getting a new AD and HC.  Grant is really insinuating Gus will be the next HC

Irwin is great with history, but often wrong on things that aren't factually happening in the public view or already happened

I'm pretty sure the only way the buyout would go up from $5 million to $12 million is if they let Jeff Long negotiate it.
