Bret Bielema tweeted at his Arkansas replacement Chad Morris on Wednesday night.
Bret Bielema was fired minutes after Arkansas’s season-ending 48-45 loss to Missouri.
Bielema had a 29-34 overall record with the Razorbacks, and was just 11-29 in SEC play. He finished 4-8 (1-7) in 2017.
Arkansas officially named former SMU head coach Chad Morris as his replacement on Wednesday. A few hours after he was officially named, Bielema sent a tweet congratulating him on the new position.

Considering how Bielema’s firing was handled, it’s cool to see that he doesn’t seem to hold any ill-will towards Arkansas. Of course, with Hunter Yurachek coming over from Houston as the new athletic director, the department is getting a pretty significant overhaul. Yurachek was officially introduced as AD, and finalized the Morris hire just hours later.
