The University of Arkansas has confirmed to KFSM-TV Wisconsin’s Bret Bielema will be the next head football coach for the Razorbacks.

Bielema’s hire will end the eight-month coaching search saga that began when Bobby Petrino was fired from the university in April for misconduct.

Bielema became the coach at Wisconsin in 2006 and led the school to its first 11-win regular season in his first year.
