Since Bobby Petrino was fired, a number of high-profile coaches have been linked to the vacant Arkansas Razorbacks head coaching job. Presumed top targets Skip Holtz and Gus Malzahn have already denied being interested in the position, and Nebraska Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini has become the latest high-profile coach to join the club.
Pelini said speculation linking him to the Arkansas job is "ludicrous" and that he's happy with his current job. Pelini has been at Nebraska -- a large program with a large fanbase -- for four seasons, and he has a 38-16 record in that time. He collects a good paycheck and wouldn't exactly be making a huge move up in the coaching world by leaving for Arkansas.
Oh, and anyone else you've heard linked to the job? They haven't spoken to Arkansas. It's all rumors, according to a man who would know, Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long.
At this time I have not spoken to anyone about the Head Coaching position.— Jeff Long (@jefflongUA) April 12, 2012
