Nebraska is targeting Bret Bielema and engaged in serious talks with the second-year Arkansas head coach, reports

FootballScoop’s Scott Roussel reports Nebraska athletic director Shawn Eichorst has a short list, and perhaps, Bielema may be the only name on it.

It is unknown whether or not Bielema would consider leaving Fayetteville, however, Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman confirms Nebraska officials are interested in the former Big Ten coach.

Bielema met with the media to recap the regular season on Wednesday afternoon, and expressed his excitement for 2015 with the Razorbacks.

Bielema’s buyout in the first three years of his deal is $12.8 million if he were to be fired. However, if Bielema were to leave for another job, the buyout is much lower.
