Would Bret Bielema be a good fit at Nebraska?

Bret Bielema was fired as the head coach at Arkansas on Friday, and assuming he still wants to coach, he'll likely be discussed as a candidate for several now-vacant positions in the coming weeks. Bruce Feldman thinks he'd be a decent option at Nebraska.

Nebraska hasn't fired head coach Mike Riley yet, but many believe it's just a matter of time after another subpar season. For what it's worth, there is now a report suggesting that Scott Frost to the Cornhuskers is already a "done deal."

Bielema does have head coaching experience in the Big Ten - with Wisconsin. He knows how to win in the Big Ten West, which is more than most of his fellow potential candidates can say.

The regular season wraps up for most college football programs on Saturday, so there will likely be more jobs open in 24 hours. It'll be interesting to see if Bielema lands anywhere.
