The Arkansas Razorbacks are reportedly cold blooded. Instead of giving Bret Bielema time to get off the field, or until tomorrow morning when there was more time following the loss, the Razorbacks decided to get it done right away.
Bielema knew he was going to be fired. It was just a matter of when. A news report came out last Sunday that they were going to part ways with their head coach.
He was allowed to coach his final game against the Missouri Tigers on Friday. Following the 48-45 loss to the Tigers — and as he was leaving the field — Bielema was fired.
“I was informed coming off the field, I would no longer be the coach at Arkansas,” he said. “Never had this happen to me in my life so this is new to me.”
The Razorbacks ended their season with a 4-8 record. They finished 1-7 within the Southeastern Conference, as they won against the Ole Miss Rebels on October 28th.
Arkansas also fired athletic director Jeff Long recently. The Razorbacks have their sights on Auburn Head Coach Gus Malzahn, who reportedly, if hired, could pick his own athletic director.
This is one of the worst ways to be fired as a head coach. Another bad way was when the USC Trojans fired Lane Kiffin at the airport.
