Bret Bielema Drives His Entire Offensive Line Over To Their Position Coach's House To Confront Him Over Leaving For UGA

USAArkansas has a non-compete clause in the contract of offensive coordinator Dan Enos that prevents him from leaving the Razorbacks directly for another job in the SEC.

Not so for offensive line coach Sam Pittman. All that Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema had from Pittman was his word. And until this weekend, that seemed to be enough.

According to Gridiron Now, Bielema told reporters Saturday, “(Pittman) kind of always made the comment that, ‘You don’t have to worry about me going. You can set the buyout wherever you want it,’ ” Bielema said. “I just believed it, and obviously it didn’t come true.”

Pittman has officially been hired onto new Georgia coach Kirby Smart’s staff, but before that happened, Bielema pulled out all the stops to stop Pittman from going. That included taking the Razorback players Pittman coached to Pittman’s house on Friday in a last-ditch effort to keep him.

“I think when you’re dealing with 19-, 20- and 21-year-old kids, they’re going to be emotional,” Bielema told reporters. “Some were mad, sad, sad then mad. It’s a part of the job no one wants to talk about, and Sam, because of the way he recruits and the way he handles people — until this matter — had been very personal.”

“This one took place within the conference, and I just wanted Sam to address the linemen as to why this was happening. “I thought that was the last thing he could do, and he didn’t want to do that, so I just took them to him.”

Pittman refuted the notion that he had refused to see his now former players.

Bielema, so butthurt right now, Bielema…so butthurt.

Is Bielema serious with this? Trashing his assistant to the media for leaving for a better job? Do you know what sport you’re talking about here? It’s college football, where every coach has a chance to leave for any job at any second of the season. Like, for example, how you left Wisconsin for Arkansas, so you could be in the SEC. Also, weren’t you pissed your assistants weren’t being paid enough? I guess worrying about the well being of your staff got left behind in Madison.
