FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - The following statement is from University of Arkansas Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long:
"Although I do not consider it appropriate to discuss the personnel searches of other universities or colleges, I feel it's important to address recent speculation about me and the athletics director position at another prestigious institution. Although I can't be responsible for what others are saying or thinking, I do know that I am not interested in leaving the University of Arkansas. My interest and commitment continues to be providing leadership to the University of Arkansas and to Razorback athletics at this critical time in our program's history."
