Report: Bret Bielema is new Arkansas head football coach, defecting from Wisconsin.

Arkansas may have just provided the biggest WTF moment of the post regular season by reportedly lured Bret Bielema from Wisconsin to be the Razorbacks' new head football coach. To quote Ozma in Fables when attacked by the badger Brock Blueheart: "Okay, I didn't see this coming."

"An announcement will come Tuesday, sources told Y! Sports, but Bielema is not expected to be introduced until Wednesday. 

Details of Bielema's contract at Arkansas are not yet known, but the school was said to have a major war chest for this coaching search. 

Bielema was making $2.5 million at Wisconsin."

There's no word on how much it took Arkansas to get Bielema out of Wisconsin, or why Bielema would want to leave Madison in the first place.
