Yesterday you resigned as head coach of the football team at the University of Arkansas. While many feel, including myself, that this was two-years in the making, I think we need to remember what you’ve done for the program in the last 10 years:
The bigger problem that I (and others) see, is that during the same 10 years, you also accomplished:
It’s tough in Razorback country. It’s a good-ol’ boys network. The truth of it, though, is that we (the fans) want better results. It seemed that your ego came in the way of trusting your coaches to do their jobs. When you finally seemed to, we got our biggest win of the season – but it was a little too late.
For the record, I thought you were a great coach and a masterful motivator. It was just the last three years that doomed you and half of it was off the field.
You’ll do well wherever you land and I hope you find success there, too.
Thanks for coaching the Razorbacks back into the competitive landscape of college football. We appreciate most of what you’ve accomplished.
Hog Callingly Yours,
PS - Do you REALLY think you should take $3M+ for quitting a job? If you leave most of that in your office once you’re gone, we’d completely understand.
