Bret Bielema focused on Arkansas's next game, not his job security
It’s been a rough start to the 2017 season for the Arkansas Razorbacks, who currently sport a 2-5 record overall and an 0-4 mark in SEC play.
Naturally, that has brought plenty of heat on coach Bret Bielema, who is probably facing the most firing talk of any SEC coach not named Butch Jones.
However, Bielema said after a lopsided loss to Auburn on Saturday night that he’s not focused on his job security, instead worrying about the Hogs’ next game against Ole Miss (via 247Sports):
“Obviously this is unchartered waters for me,” Bielema said. “The greatest thing about a coaching position is this, you just worry about the day in front of you.
“I know that’s probably not the answer you want…but I do. I can’t worry about anything but the day in front of me. I don’t really worry about the future or anything like that. I just worry about Ole Miss.”
If things keep going the way they’re going now, Bielema may not make it to the end of the season with his job.
However, he can’t think about that now, as a loss to Ole Miss would be just another setback in a long list of failures for the Hogs this season.
