Huge news in the SEC and the Big Ten: Arkansas has grabbed Brett Bielema, Wisconsin’s coach, according to reports.

Pat Forde at Yahoo Sports said: “An announcement will come today, sources told Y! Sports, but Bielema is not expected to be introduced until Wednesday.”

Arkansas had already dangled a monster contract under the nose of LSU Coach Les Miles before the Tigers gave him a massive new extension and contract increase.

BOTTOM LINE: This is massive news for the Razorbacks. Bielema is a fine recruiter, and has taken Wisconsin to three straight Rose Bowls. The Badgers are coached with having a fine running game behind giant offensive linesman. Don’t expect miracles from Bielema in his first year, but if he doesn’t half the job he did at Wisconsin, this is going to be a great hire.
