Other thread was getting close to 1000 comments, making a new one:
Evidently Brett Bielma wrote a letter to Jeff Long (Arkansas AD) on December 3...
Just wanted to say that this note is long past due. As I watched your press conference this past spring I wanted to reach out and say how much I respected your actions but more importantly your words. As a head coach I know that my comments are looked at in every way possible. Here at UW I have a great AD because he is a man of his word and asks the same for all of us. Best wishes moving forward and stay strong. It was the right call!
P.S. One thing I have learned through my time at UW is that today’s society wants to win them all, but as Coaches and Administrators we need to balance the Big Picture for all our student-athletes!
After not getting hired at Auburn, Bobby Petrino goes to Western Kentucky
ESPN article on Petrino, includes quotes
Not sure how long he stays, but does it really matter? If he stays 2 years, he is going to leave WKU in good shape (Taggert left after 3 years)
