Don't pay him. And when Sam doesn't work out be the Vandy of the West. I'm sure if he were offered a HC job commiserate with where he coached at he'd be on it. You should have learned from KU.

Bert and Arky had a contract for the separation. Why don't they all just do what the contract says? What is wanted. or yearned for, means nothing. Just do what the contract said.

Arkansas Foundation believes that since he got a job in New England and stopped looking for a Head coaching job they were off the hook. I don't believe that is correct interpretation of the contract language. Obviously Bret does not.

My point is that the contract is probably clear, concise, and comprehensive. Both sides should go with that. Whether they wanted him to be the King of the World or a janitor has no bearing on it. They both need to abide by the contract.

Funny thing is they would have been better off keeping him than the coaching they’ve had since he was fired

He got on the hot seat when he lost two winnable games. He had double digit leads in Missouri and Virginia Tech back in 2016. It is easy to look back and say we should have kept him another year but he was starting to lose the team.

He’s the gift that keeps on giving for the Hawgs. Guess he’s milking it for all it’s worth since his days a a 7 figure coach are over.

That lazy piece of shite. I’d rather pay attorneys than pay that sorry excuse for a football coach.

So, he claims they owe him $12 mil, so he’s asking for $7 mil?

$7 mil cash and the remainder will be paid in Little Debbie Swiss Rolls.

Pretty sure they've already paid him $5mm, which arky wants back.
