Bret Bielema concerned that hot seat talk may reach his players
Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema is still trying to move on from a disappointing start to the season.
The Razorbacks are 2-2 on the season with both losses proving to be extremely frustrating ones for fans to endure. TCU shut down the Hogs at home, and Texas A&M knocked off the Razorbacks in overtime after the Aggies hit a field goal late to tie the game.
The Razorbacks offense got on track early against New Mexico State and put up a complete performance in the 42-24 victory on Saturday. Still, Bielema remains on the hot seat as the Hogs are preparing for a string of four consecutive SEC matchups.
Bielema recently addressed being on the hot seat. He acknowledged that he is responsible for the team’s performance, but what frustrates him is when the negativity reaches his players.
ESPNU Radio shared Bielema’s comments on Twitter:
