    Arkansas closing in on Art Briles?

    Rumors swirling that a very close to the vest search may end with Art Briles as the new Razorbacks coach within the next week...

    Interesting choice, if true. He'll turn 57 next month and has lived in Texas his whole life and was a high school coach there until 1999. So he certainly should know how to recruit Texas.

    I guess the Hogs are thinking they are going to have to have a Baylor like offense to contend in the SEC. A&M and Ole Miss proved it can be effective at times.

    Word yesterday was that Arkansas recruits were being told that Chris Petersen would be their next coach

    We're going to hear all kinds of rumors about Arky, UT and the Barn until someone is hired, not putting much stock in any of them.

    Briles would be a fool not get out of Baylor while his name is hot and cash in, whether that's Arkansas or any other team more prestigious than Baylor.

    Peterson has turned down much better jobs in the past, I'd be shocked if he took the Arkansas job.

    Agreed. Now is his time to cash in if he wants big money.

    I don't see Peterson ever leaving Boise now that they are back in the mix for the playoffs and all when it starts.

    Honestly I think Briles to Arky would be a decent hire unless they let him bring his DC with him.... If I'm Arky I'm stressing to Briles he MUST hire a good DC.

    Hard to speculate once the answer is apparent.

    Baylor has broken ground on a new stadium that Briles pushed for. He is a Texan and has always coached in Texas. If he was going SEC, he would have tried to get the TAMU job. At this point, I only see Briles moving to the University of Texas, if that.

    Sounds like a man that will only leave if taken out in a pine box.
