Is Long already reaching out?
« on: October 12, 2017, 11:48:19 am »

The handwriting is obviously on the wall, gotta think he's got a short list that he's already contacting.

Just because Finebaum says he "Thinks" Jeff Long is negotiating a contract extension doesn't mean it's going to happen.

I don't think Long is getting an extension, but I don't think Long is going to be let go or quietly take another job elsewhere.

I believe his contract expires next summer so if he doesn't get offered an extension or a new contract, I'd doubt that he hangs around until his current contract expires.

Jeffrey leaves here, it will be to a commissioner job or another P5 athletic department with multiple solid athletic programs like Arkansas. Contrary to popular belief, while at Arkansas his stock has gone up, way up.   We'll be fortunate to keep him.

I think the only reason he’s where’s he’s at is because of the Petrino firing, without that he’d be just another ad.

Why? Beilema's buyout has turned out to be fairly reasonable, so he didn't screw that up. Because he hired CBB in the first place? Heck, everyone in the entire country was shocked that we could snag the sitting Wisconsin coach, it was considered a fantastic hire at the time.
  Honestly, why all the hate for Long? Is it because he's from up north? Or because he's respected by his peers. Maybe the new reason is that he has exposed nearly all of us on Hogville as complete idiots who can't decipher a relatively simple employment contract that's been out there for 5 years.

More than anything, Mr. Long wants to run a clean program. And Coach B. does that. When Auburn, Ole Miss, and the others go down for their cheating. Arkansas will stand proud.

Is it too much to ask for the person hiring the coach to not require him to recruit choir boys... or at least get a coach that doesn't emphasize that? We're not Vanderbilt, no matter how much Pope Long wants us to be. I just want someone that will get ballplayers... they don't have to be brain surgeons. Keep them graduating, academically eligible, and out of jail. If you can't keep them out of jail, recruit enough speed to outrun the 5-0.  ;)

Yes, he's contacting any and all universities that are possibly interested in hiring a new AD. His CV is bright and shiny today, and he's putting it out there for everyone to see. He's the kinda guy who must leave on his terms, and he's not going to risk getting fired over the next few years.

Turmoil?
Baseball - good
Basketball - back on the up swing
Track - great
Football - mediocre
Women’s basketball - new coach
Softball - just participated in the NCAA tourney
Golf - good
Swim team - ???

Athletic Department worth over $160 million.

No thanks. I would rather Razorbacks not be in the news for raping women and stealing credit cards. IMO, that is much more embarrassing than losses on the field.

Pretty much covered that. The last part of the comment was obviously sarcasm.

maybe I misunderstood, but I thought Wally implied that JLong would go before BB and that might be coming down the pike when he was on Finebaum.  I didnt see the interview, so I could be completely wrong. Everyone on here was saying that Wally doesnt write anything unless he has already been told something, so I just assumed that Long was on a hotter seat than BB.   But I guess I shouldnt assume.  LOL

I have seen a poll where Long ranked something like #5 out of all ADs of Power 5 schools.  Outside of the state of Arkansas, he is well respected. Thats why I figure we are stuck with BB cause Long loves him some BB and I figured the BOT loves Long because of how financially stable the Athletic Dept has been.

Ever since I leaned the buyout for Bret is reasonable to low he was in good graces with me.  I don't get why some of you are so mad.  He's as an AD, not a psychic.  It was a good hire and firing Bret at the end of the year will be appropriate timing.

Tim Horton for what?  Head coach!? Wouldn't that be for the head football coach to decide?  Or be forced to do.
