Jeff Long Out As Razorback Athletic Director

Reports surfaced Wednesday that AD Jeff Long and Arkansas were parting ways. Long hired Bielema from Wisconsin in December 2012, a move praised at the time because Bielema had won three consecutive Big Ten championships.

Long was hired at Arkansas to replace legendary coach and athletic director Frank Broyles in 2008 but made the hire of former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino in 2007 before officially taking the position.

Petrino was sacked four years later after lying about his relationship with a staffer after a motorcycle accident.

The school's dismissal of Long likely signals football coach Bret Bielema is on his way out, too. It also didn't help Long that Arkansas is 4-6 this season and Bielema has a 29-32 record as the Razorbacks coach. He served as the chairperson and face of the College Football Playoff selection committee in 2014 and 2015.
