Arkansas offensive line coach Sam Pittman has left the school to join Kirby Smart's staff at Georgia. This is something that Razorbacks head coach Bret Bielema is not too pleased with. Especially after he and his lineman made an effort to go to Pittman's house to convince him to stay...
quote:Someone might be feeling hangry after all this.
“I think when you’re dealing with 19-, 20- and 21-year-old kids, they’re going to be emotional,” Bielema said after the last-ditch effort of loading up the offensive line and showing up on Pittman’s doorstep failed. “Some were mad, sad, sad then mad. It’s a part of the job no one wants to talk about, and Sam, because of the way he recruits and the way he handles people — until this matter — had been very personal.”
“(Pittman) kind of always made the comment that, ‘You don’t have to worry about me going. You can set the buyout wherever you want it,’ ” Bielema said. “I just believed it, and obviously it didn’t come true.”
