  • I'd advise taking a year or two off, enjoy the new baby, gamble his ass off in Vegas and S. Florida, move to where Jen's parents are, do a little TV BS a couple times a year, let the stink wear off a bit.

    Then hope some foolish mid-major replacing their coach who upgraded jobs will roll the dice or back his way into the Purdue, Illinois, Indiana jobs when they need a coach.

    The best he could hope for at this point is taking over FAU when Kiffin moves on or USF or UCF but I'm not sure that any of those AD's are dumb enough like Jeff Long to fall for his rouge.  KState is probably a closed door now. Iowa is a fart in the wind for him now. No chance a Power 5 program is taking the risk seeing how terribly he underperformed here and he brings a plan that is a losing proposition for most schools.

    Purdue wouldn't hire him on a bet, with his Neanderthal offense.

    Also think if he stays in the south or southeast, he will have to change his offensive system to get a job.

  • I think he ll get a chance at a P5 again. Nationally, media and people realize what Arkansas is (a mid to bottom SEC school all time) and don’t fault him for not succeeding here in 5 years or less. They saw what he was able to do at a B10 power.

    He ll be just fine.


    Whoever replaces him will have some influence on Bert's future too.

    If his replacement shows quick success, and his predecessor had success (BP, not Smilie), then it's pretty clear the guy in the middle didn't carry his (considerable) weight.

  • I could see a Western Kentucky type school.  Kind of like Petrino did to rebuild his reputation even though their reputations took severe knocks for different reasons.

    I'm not a Bielema hater.  I believe he's a good coach and some things got away from him and spun out of control (all things he's responsible for).  If he's let go, I hope that he can rebuild his rep and get where he wants to go.

    ^^^I like this post.^^^

  • As a guess, with typical AR luck?

    CBB disappears for two years, resurfaces at MN and wins Big Ten title shares three of ten years while fostering a public face that the issue was always "us."

    Making it even more difficult to locate a Head Coach after the next one fails.

  • Can't imagine any school, of any consequence, wanting him. He'd probably be great on tv.

  • Probably Sips Whiskey and slips off to Vegas

     You can change your screen name. Your login name will not change, but your name shown to the rest of us will be what ever you want it to be. It also changes on all of your past posts too, so don't think you can go on a troll spree and get away with it.

  • enjoys the florida sun, does some tv. then will probably return to coaching after a year
  • #60 by DeltaBoy on 14 Nov 2017
  • Does a small program like Rice or East Carolina or something let him try to retool as their head coach, does he go back to DC duties somewhere, or does he get into broadcasting?

    Who cares.

    Disagree. The smart ones realize that both programs are similar with regard to resources and recruiting base. What Arkansas lacks is the AD that built the program staying on his ass like Alvarez. Look what happened to Gary Andersen after he left Alvarez. He failed at Oregon St. and quit.

  • You never know. Will Muschamp proved he could not win the SEC East in four years at Florida. So South Carolina hired him.  ???
  • #65 by Mellon Collie on 14 Nov 2017
  • He's got Big Ten coordinator written all over him.

    Muschamp went 10-2 his second year and went to the sugar bowl. Bret hasn't quite done that. If so we would have him for 5 more years.

    Maybe?


    If Nebraska is really going after Bret Bielema and Jim McElwain, then they really have fallen further than I thought.

    I think that waa already obvious when they hired Riley. I bet oregon st paid his fare out of town.

    Les Miles would be a better coach for them, and his son plays for Nebraska, apparently. Also, during a game he did color for earlier this year, he apparently kept saying "we" when referring to Nebraska. (likely because his son plays for them)
  • #70 by bkjbearcat on 14 Nov 2017
  • The MAC, Missouri Valley or D2. Of course I've been saying I can see him as the successor to Old Man Snyder at K-State as long as BB keeps Snyder's son around for 2 years or until he finds a HC job somewhere.

  • He'll be a head coach at the FBS level again when he decides he wants to and probably will be in a P5 conference again not too long after that if it isn't his next step.  I doubt he would take a dead end job like KU right now although he could probably land somewhere like that.  A USF-like job would be a good spot outside the P5.  Only problem for him in Florida is you have to take at risk kids especially at a USF, UCF, FAU, FIU. 

    Bielema is young for a coach.  His resume can be spun:  did well at Wisconsin, took on the challenge at Arkansas at a time when the program needed to be rebuilt after turmoil, Arkansas can't recruit like most of the SEC, schedule has been brutally tough, injuries in his final season decimated team from a leadership standpoint, didn't succeed in a tough job, still built a good program off the field, does things the right way in terms of the NCAA, good personality to work with as far as administration, etc.  - no reason to respond to argue these as I'm not saying they are all true, understand what it means to spin a resume.  He is still marketable (unless something crazy comes out).

    Should take a season off and spend it with wife and daughter and visiting other coaches and NFL franchises.  Keep his contacts and maybe evolve his thinking on the game. 
  • #72 by Next1_04 on 14 Nov 2017
  • Bielema is leaving Arkansas?

    Link?
  • #73 by Pig in the Pokey on 14 Nov 2017
  • I read on here many times his next step after Arkansas would be the NFL.
    LOL!!! What a riot. NFL Network, maybe.
  • #74 by okrazorback on 14 Nov 2017
  •   If I had All the money He will have when he leaves I would go anywhere I wanted to go. I haven't heard anyone say he is leaving  except people on this
    board, but I hope he l e aves.

  • No NFL team will hire a perennial loser.

    If he doesn't win out, this will be his second losing season. 

    The definition of perennial:

    per·en·ni·al
    pəˈrenēəl/Submit
    adjective
    1.
    lasting or existing for a long or apparently infinite time; enduring or continually recurring.

    More fact checking, less knee jerk stupidity.

  • Bret's style translates only to programs who recruit their asses off.  So.  Unless he changes scheme....he's headed to TV.
  • #78 by Hook 'em Hogs on 15 Nov 2017
  • WOW are you really that dense?  BB isn't even a mediocre coach much less a good one.  I have never been BB hater (in fact quite often argued BB deserved time to build his program), but it is well past time to call a spade a spade!  The fact you say "if he's let go" speaks volumes about you.  LOL

    Ahh, the belittling of someone who has a different opinion of you.  Classic!  +1 if I could.  I haven't seen it used so coldly in quite a while. 

    The "If he's let go" is simply my lack of inside knowledge as to whether he will be fired this year or not.  I know that some of you guys just "know" in your gut and stuff.  I don't trust my gut in things like this-too many moving parts.  If I had facts that you apparently have, I'd say "When he is let go."  I simply don't know.  I have an opinion though, and I think it's important to be able to share opinions without name calling. 

    There are simply too many examples in life (including coaching) where a great employee did a great job before and after a stop on his/her career path, but during that middle stop just couldn't get it rolling.  I'll stand by my statement that he's a good coach because he didn't just magically plop down at Wisconsin.  He worked his way up and did good work and landed a big time job where he performed well.  For two years, he had the national media talking about how he had Arkansas rolling.  The end of last year and all of this year have rightly silenced that talk.  I think some poor hires and failure to keep his personal philosophy as THE philosophy have led to this.  He's made big mistakes that may very well cost him his job-again, I won't say for sure because I don't know.
