Arkansas will pay Bielema's $1 million buyout to Wisconsin
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Bret Bielema will earn $3.2 million annually for six years in his new job at Arkansas, which will also pay its new coach's $1 million buyout to Wisconsin.
Arkansas on Wednesday released its signed letter of agreement with Bielema, which includes another $700,000 in annual incentives.
The Razorbacks hired Bielema on Tuesday, tabbing the former Badgers coach to take over a program that went into a tailspin after former coach Bobby Petrino was fired for hiring his mistress to work in the athletic department.
It was not immediately known whether Bielema would coach in the Rose Bowl for the Badgers.
