The University of Arkansas's search for a football coach

Posted By on Fri, Apr 20, 2012 at 2:50 PM

Just in case you wondered:

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The following is an update from Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long regarding the head football coach position at the University of Arkansas.

“As we near the completion of spring practice, I wanted to provide an update regarding our progress in naming a head football coach at the University of Arkansas. While we have initiated a review of potential candidates both inside and outside the program, the process remains ongoing and will extend beyond the spring game weekend. While this process is a priority, it is imperative we take the time to identify a leader for our program who will provide the best opportunity to build upon the recent success of our nationally ranked program on and off the field.

“I appreciate the tremendous leadership our assistant coaches have provided this spring. They continue to serve in the best interests of our student-athletes and the Razorback program.

“My hope is that by sharing this information today, we may focus our attention this weekend on supporting our coaches and football student-athletes at the spring game. I hope you will join me at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Saturday to show our support and cheer on the Razorbacks.”

Arkansas will conclude its spring practice on Saturday at 2 p.m. with the annual Red-White Spring Game, sponsored by Cox Advanced TV, Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Admission is free to the game. The game will be aired live on CST with live look-ins on ESPN during ESPN Goal Line: Spring Football and available worldwide on ESPN3.com to those outside the CST viewing area.

State cops took his reports seriously, they say. But in the end, they found nothing actionable.

  • Not justice

    The strongest, most enduring calls for the death penalty come from those who feel deeply the moral righteousness of "eye-for-an-eye" justice, or retribution. From the depths of pain and the heights of moral offense comes the cry, "The suffering you cause is the suffering you shall receive!" From the true moral insight that punishment should fit the crime, cool logic concludes, "Killers should be killed." Yet I say: retribution yes; death penalty no.
