Report: Razorbacks hire Bielema

The SportsXchange

Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema is leaving the Badgers for the Arkansas Razorbacks, according to Yahoo! Sports.

He is officially expected to be announced on Tuesday, sources told Yahoo!

Bielema is 68-24 record in seven years with Wisconsin and has led the Badgers to three straight Rose Bowl appearances. They earned another trip to Pasadena with a win over Nebraska in the Big Ten Championship game.

The Badgers haven't said whether Bielema will coach the team in the Rose Bowl.

Arkansas is still struggling after the school fired Bobby Petrino in April amid a scandal, and the Razorbacks struggled to a 4-8 record under John L. Smith.

Bielema, 42, had been head coach at Wisconsin since 2006. Details of his new deal weren't known.
