Arkansas fires athletic director Jeff Long

Jeff Long out as Arkansas athletics director

Long has been Arkansas' athletic director since 2008 when he replaced Frank Broyles. Long was the chairman of the College Football Playoff selection committee from 2014-16 and still serves on the committee.

Arkansas and Bret Bielema shocked the college football world when the Razorbacks hired him as their new head coach in December 2012. The Razorbacks (4-6) will fail to win at least nine games this season for the sixth straight year, the school's longest stretch since an eight year stretch that coincided with joining the SEC in 1992. However, over the past year, Jeff has lost the support of many of our fans, alumni, key supporters, and members of the university leadership, support that I believe is critical in our pursuit of excellence.

Multiple reports, many citing sources inside the UA athletic department, said Wednesday that Long is no longer athletic director.

Long was praised after that season for his hiring of Bielema away from Wisconsin.

"(He's been) awesome, not for me as the head coach, of course he has been, but for our student-athletes", Bielema said.

Long has been involved with the CFP committee for several years.

Chancellor Steinmetz has appointed Associate Vice Chancellor for Athletics and Senior Associate Athletics Director Julie Cromer Peoples as interim director of athletics. "So I think they want someone who can come in and really not be okay with Arkansas winning roughly half of its SEC games". "We're trying to put ourselves in the best position ever to have a great Wednesday practice to get to Saturday", said Bielema.

The Ohio native played quarterback at Ohio Wesleyan University.
