At this time, and given the current events, his name isn't a good fit......Bo Pelini....Bob Patrino....not going to work.
If Bo Pelini has any interest in the vacancy at Arkansas, he sure didn’t show it yesterday. When asked if he was flattered to have his name mentioned in connection with top coaching jobs, Pelini said:
“You talking about the Arkansas thing? Actually, I didn’t even know my name got thrown around. I don’t even know how that stuff happens. I’m here and I’m happy to be here.”
That’s not all. In addition to saying that Nebraska “is a destination job” and not “a stepping-stone job,” Pelini said his being linked to the Razorbacks’ vacancy is “kind of ludicrous.”
Coaches often lie in these situations, but for now at least, it sure sounds like Arkansas AD Jeff Long can scratch Pelini’s name from his list. If Pelini’s name was even on his list.
