FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) – A nonprofit supporting University of Arkansas athletics will pay fired head football coach Bret Bielema up to nearly $12 million over three years in a buyout agreement.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the buyout amount announced Tuesday between Bielema and the Razorback Foundation settles a disparity between the coach’s contract with the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville and a separate agreement with the foundation.
