The coaches come and go

Posted By on Tue, Dec 6, 2011 at 2:26 PM

Football news today:

* KFSM now reporting as legit the talk that has filled chat boards all day — that Hog defensive coordinator Willy Robinson is getting the boot. This overshadows news that Bobby Petrino is bringing his brother Paul back as Hogs' offensive coordinator.

* John Chavis of LSU was honored with the Broyles Award in Little Rock today as the country's top assistant football coach.

Coaches, roaches. Find us some Honey Badgers on Arkansas high school fields — preferably with a New Orleans accent like the one at LSU. And a couple of Barkevious Mingos.

UPDATE: Euphemism watch, from the D-G and its NWA kid sister:

Arkansas has announced defensive coordinator Willy Robinson will not return to the program.

Like....he had a choice. Jeff Longese at work here. Willy was fired. Fox 16 has Petrino statement. Be curious if the Robinson contract — his pay was $325,000 — provided for some severance.
