He admitted it. Not sure how an agent negotiates a contract that allows you to lie with national media microphones in your face.

I havenít seen the audio where he admitted it.  Just where he said maybe he shouldnít have said anything.

My point is that the buyouts canít become meaningless.  Agents wonít let that happen.

ďWe played hard today.Ē - oops, maybe he lied about that. Fired with cause. 

If McElwain told the AD he just made it up then heís a fool and should be fired.  If he tossed the letter away or heard it on the radio then itís all a nonissue.  Thatís not reasonable cause.

I bet he sees a sizable buyout anyway, just not anywhere near the contract.

If Florida is such a great job, why did they get stuck with Muschamp and McElwain back to back?  If Norvell could choose between Florida and Arkansas, I donít think Florida is a slam dunk choice.  Not the way it once was anyway.

McElwain looked a lot like Norvell coming out of Colorado State.  Didnít work out like they expected.  2 straight SEC east titles but it was boring.

This is his first year losing. He took them to the SEC Championship game in year 1 and 2.

I'm aware  of that but the Florida faithful have very little patience. McElwain has been on thin ice since the Gators were embarrassed by the Hogs last year.

May be more of a reflection on the person doing the hiring.

Fla may not be a top five job now, but with the right coach and the recruiting base it certainly could be.

My post history screams that I cant stand HDN.

HIS...history screams he will never work for us again.  So yeah, it wss a joke.

You were hinting you had inside info. But of course, you cant tell anyone...because its super secret.

But you still wanted everyone to know you knew.

So I made a joke to point out how silly your super secret post was.  THAT was my agenda.

It worked, too.

I dont have any other agenda for you. I don't know you well enough to have an agenda. Or care.

LOL right then don't respond to my post, as in ignore me.  It's your post history not mine.

Not trying to be argumentative but I cant beleve the AD would sway someone that much?  My alma mater is UA and I would probably take the UF job.  Way bigger upside in the east.

Not argumentative, I'm sure it's rare.

Florida will never get out of the buyout. He never even said HIS family received death threats, he said  that coaches families receive death threats. The best they can hope for is he will reduce their buyout by taking a head job for $1-2 million somewhere else.
I'd take a head job $1-$2 million. probably a lot less.

I would think that Dan Mullins would be the likely pick, he was offensive coordinator their. He would be a great coach for the hogs as well. He knows how to evaluate talent and QB development. MS, beat the dog crap out of A&M last night. MS, QB is outstanding it took two season but Dan has him function on all cylinders. They will beat the dog crap out of us in Fayetteville.

I am thinking Dan Mullen returns...

It is my understanding that the reason Mullen wasn't considered at UF before was a feud with Jeremy Foley. Foley is gone, replaced by Mullen's former boss at Moo U, Stricklin.

Mullen would do very well at Florida IMO and has been looking to get out of Stankville, interviewing for several jobs the last 2-3 years.

The AD connection may make Mullen the favorite and he is definitely an upgrade over the Swamp Donkey McElwain.

I would take Mullen over what we have, but no way he comes here over UF if offered there. I would let UT have Gruden if we could have Norvell but we are probably still saddled with Butter Bean for at least another year..

Any coach Florida wants, will go to Florida instead of Arkansas, regardless of who calls first.

Whoever Norvell's agent is, or any other coach's agent...it's their job to know who's shopping. They know it now.

And Florida is a bigger job than Arkansas. They know that, too.

Yes, Florida is for sure a bigger job. However, there is a LOT more pressure to win there and not just win but score a lot of points. Their idiot fans expect to win every game and score 40 or more, no matter the opponent.. BB wouldn't have lasted 4 years there, let alone 5..

Wait a cotton picking minute, it's been said countless times on Hogville that who the AD is makes no difference to a coach. 

Or at least Jeff Long being the AD would make no difference.  Well I guess only time will tell us peons how the wind blows.

He will, but it will probably be A&M. Our best bet is Norvell, if Jeffie will pull the trigger in time.

Mullen is not the great coach many seem to imply.  At Fla, he would be a solid 8+ winner with 9 to 11 in his wheel house.  Geo will be better most years.  But he is not going to guarantee FLA the East 8 out of 10 years and go win NCs.

Gus might take the Fla job and do well but I suspect the jab at Long earlier is Gus saying he would not come to Arkansas with Jeff as AD. and we know Petrino wouldn't.

Say what you want but Mullin's MSU Bulldogs manhandled Texas A&M at Texas A&M yesterday. They were impressive.

Norvell seems like a bright hopeful coach.

Does he have enough history to be Arkansas coach

I want BB gone, but with all of the jobs that are opening up this is a horrible situation for Arkansas to be in.  Hiring a coach after this season is going to be a massive crap shoot....

Oh, you mean weíre not hiring Gruden?
