Arkansas hires Bielema, Auburn nabs Malzahn

Posted:

Tennessee is the only SEC school without a head football coach.

Arkansas and Auburn both ended their searches Tuesday. The Hogs pulled off a stunner plucking Brett Bielema from Wisconsin and Gus Malzahn is reportedly leaving Arkansas State to go back to Auburn.

Malzahn was the Tigers offensive coordinator when they won the National Championship with Cam Newton at quarterback in 2010.

He led the Red Wolves to a 9-3 record, a Sun Belt Conference title and a berth in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.

Malzahn replaces Gene Chizik, who was fired after a 49-0 loss to No. 2 Alabama to complete a 3-9 season.

Bielema is 68-24 in seven seasons at Wisconsin and has the Badgers in back to back bowl games.
