Grobe to Be Named Arkansas Coach

The search is over at Arkansas. Jim Grobe of Wake Forest is the Razorbacks' new coach, replacing Houston Nutt. Grobe is expected to be introduced Thursday.

The Razorback Foundation met Wednesday evening and approved a salary supplement for Grobe, who just completed his seventh season at Wake Forest.

Grobe has a 45-39 record at Wake Forest, including an 11-3 mark last season. Last winter, he signed an extension through 2016 for what was believed to be about $1.1 million a year.

Back to the cellar for the Demon Deacs? Too bad. I loved watching them compete in the ACC. Hopefully this will be bad news for Weak Forest and R-Kansas and good news for the SEC West and South Carolina.

Pretty sure you need to check your sources on this one. There is nothing final about this. Not even close.
