According to Yahoo Sports! Pat Forde, Arkansas will hire Wisconsin’s Bret Bielema as their next head coach.
Starting as an Iowa grad assistant in 1994, Bielema was promoted to linebacker’s coach in 1996 and left to become the co-defensive coordinator at Kansas State from 2002 until 2003.
Bielema started as the defensive coordinator for the Badgers in 2004 before taking the head coaching position in 2006.
Going 68-24 in his seven years in Madison and 37-19 in Big Ten play, Bielema has lead the Badgers to bowl appearances every year.
Bielma will take over an Arkansas team that underperformed under interim head coach John L. Smith in 2012.
