Arkansas Story from footballscope

One thing about the Arkansas job, for football as well as other sports, it really has never been a stepping stone job. Coaches for sure have left, but it was pretty much because their relationship with the AD had become toxic (Eddie Sutton, Ken Hatfield). All the others were let go, they didn’t want to leave. This is the case for all sports. Texas tried to get John McDonald, also Dave Van Horn I think. Teams went after Nolan Richardson, a couple of high profile attempts were made at HDN. Kentucky may have gotten Sutton anyway, but that was after being scolded severely by Broyles about Eddie’s personal demons getting too serious. Petrino had Florida make a big move for him. When we get a coach that is successful, that we want to stay, we make it happen.
