Boston College Football Coaching Search: Wisconsin's Bret Bielema To Arkansas Makes Things Interesting

Kevork Djansezian

Arkansas will hire Wisconsin's Bret Bielema as its next football coach, possibly throwing a wrench in the Eagles coaching search.

Wow.

In a stunning coup, Arkansas will hire Wisconsin's Bret Bielema as its next football coach, Yahoo! Sports has learned.

Bielema, who has taken the Badgers to three straight Rose Bowls, was nowhere on the radar amid months of speculation over who Arkansas would hire.

An announcement will come Tuesday, sources told Y! Sports, but Bielema is not expected to be introduced until Wednesday.

I do believe Wisconsin Badgers football just became a ... STEPPING STONE job.

Stating the obvious, but this isn't the greatest development for Bates and BC:

Stay classy, Irish beat writers.

Diaco can't be tops on Wisconsin's wish list. Not with the types of coaches being mentioned for the now vacant Wisconsin head coaching position on Twitter. You have to think Pitt's Paul Chryst is an early leader for the now vacant Wisco position. Still, there's a chance this complicates things for Bates and Boston College.
