In an under-the-radar story that received almost no media coverage, last week the Arkansas Razorbacks parted ways with former head coach . The details of the parting of the ways between Arkansas and Petrino are shrouded in mystery, so perhaps no one will ever know what led to his dismissal. At any rate, the school is already hard at work on attempting to find a replacement. Although there is certain to be almost nothing at all sensational or newsworthy regarding this story, one name has already come out as a potential candidate for the head coach position.
Clay Travis from Outkick the Coverage reports that Arkansas has contacted former Tennessee Volunteers head coach Phil Fulmer about the job opening. Fulmer was with the Vols from 1992 until 2008, winning two SEC championships and a national championship during his tenure there.
I suppose the Razorbacks could do worse than having a former Coach of the Year and the holder of a lifetime 152-52 record take over their program. I had a joke written down that says, "The first question during the interview will be, 'Do you own a motorcycle?'" but I'm not sure what that means, since this is the first I'm hearing about Arkansas and a head-coaching vacancy.
