BREAKING: Reports say Arkansas Hires Jim Grobe

KATV is reporting that Wake Forest Head Coach Jim Grobe has been hired as the new Head Coach of the Razorbacks. Harry King is also reporting the same.

Grobe has a 45-39 record at Wake Forest, including an 11-3 Orange Bowl team last year and 8-4 team this year headed for the Meineke Bowl. Following last year, he signed an extension through 2016 for what was believed to be about $1.1 million per year.

This piece of an article dated from Nov. 20th by the Sporting News’ Tom Dienhart is encouraging…

Is there a better coach in America than Wake Forest’s Jim Grobe? Of course not. The guy is a genuine genius. He will be a man in demand, as he was after last season. But I know this for a fact: Grobe won’t leave Wake to rebuild another program. He is content with his fiefdom in Winston-Salem. But he might consider a job at a school that is set up for big-time success.
