He has class.  He has not said a bad word publicly about Arkansas.  His coaching ability is what was the problem.

I liked the guy after a couple of years. He was very cocky when he got here but left humbled. Very classy tweet. He did not have to do that.

I know the truth, and that is if you hit the lotto for $11.7 Million, you would be pissed if they paid you in $20 bills instead of $100 bills.
You guys are just blind and it is not my fault. Guy walks away from here with 30 million dollars and produces nothing, and you sit around patting him on the back, talking about how great of a person he is. Funny I didn't see him telling his attorney to take a sensible buyout because he hadn't produced, no he sent his attorney to get every dollar  possible on his way out. I just don't see how great of a guy he is................

No it wasn't his fault he had his finger in ole Jeff's eye. But does that excuse him for making the cash grab on the way out the door, knowing he hadn't delivered anything on the field?

That's the business of coaching. If he did as you said, would you leave money on the table? He didn't have to reach out to Morris, but chose to. I hope he has great things to say about his time here.

He took what was contractually owed to him. Doesn't make him any less of a class act.  Guy is full of class, unlike many on this forum.  Many could learn some very good life lessons from him that would make the world a better place

Exactly! He peter-principled. Nice guy? I don't know, never met the man. Good coach? No. So he needs to remain classy because that's all he can hang his hat on right now because his coaching record is atrocious at Arkansas.

If by class you mean he manipulated an AD who was in love with him to get a contract he neither earned nor deserved, then I agree.

He did his job honorably. It just didn't work out. You don't know if it would have worked out next year or not. He didn't get that chance. It's not like he stole money. His agent negotiated the deal. You want to be mad? Call Jeff Long.

Fact is, the guy came here because he wanted -- and thought -- he could win here. He took the job. He came looking for it. His kid is now from Arkansas. He has ties and roots. I'm not going to knock the man for sending a congratulatory tweet. In fact, if Bret and family ever want to come have dinner with me my door is open.

He negotiated his buyout.  He could have got the entire amount if he really wanted, which was apparently a few mil more.  And thatís how contracts work...

Making the cash grab?  He took what he was contractually due.  He fulfilled his end...the results just weren't there. 

Problem is that the terms of his buyout were too generous for too long.  That is on our former AD and probably factored in his termination.

Why people got to be such asses even after he is gone.  Yeah I dogged on him mercilessly this season.  Yes he's getting a fat buyout, but there's nothing contractually obligating him to show class and dignity yet he freely chooses to do so.  The outgoing coach being so gracious sets a good tone for the players and the incoming coach.  He and Jeff have been nothing but class and I respect both of them for it.

You guys are just blind and it is not my fault. Guy walks away from here with 30 million dollars and produces nothing, and you sit around patting him on the back, talking about how great of a person he is. Funny I didn't see him telling his attorney to take a sensible buyout because he hadn't produced, no he sent his attorney to get every dollar  possible on his way out. I just don't see how great of a guy he is................
Sorry. Thatís not mutually exclusive. Being a good person has nothing to do with someone handing you a 11.8M check. You can be both, and he is.

He didnít have to say anything, grow up and acknowledge that not working out at Arkansas doesnít mean we have to hate him as a human.
