Who was it who said never yield?

Reports from Texas say Jeff Long, the University of Arkansas athletic director, is on the list to be interviewed for the AD job at Texas.

Impressed by our football turnaround, I guess. The reporting seems to put the West Virginia athletic director at the top of the list.


UPDATE: IT DEPENDS ON THE MEANING OF WHAT IS IS:

In a series of long-delayed Tweets this evening Jeff Long said WPS.

I like this one:

Further, I’m not seeking a position or engaged in the search process of another University


This came about 7 p.m., hours after reports of UT's interest in him circulated.

He issued a prepared statement:

I do not comment on the searches of other Universities or on unsubstantiated rumors. I am proud to be a Vice Chancellor and the Director of Athletics at the University of Arkansas. Further, I am not seeking a position or engaged in the search process of another University.

We have a tremendous amount of work to do to move our entire program forward and with the support of Razorback fans we will succeed. I have an outstanding team of coaches and staff to work with and have a deep appreciation for their work with our student-athletes.

Chancellor Gearhart is a tremendous leader and a man of high integrity; it is a privilege to work for and with him. I have also great appreciation for the support of President Bobbitt and our Board of Trustees. Together we have made critically important decisions to advance our athletics program during my time with the University and we will have more important decisions in the future.

I am excited to lead this program and I am energized by the the prospects of providing the student-athletes and coaches the facilities and resources they need to compete and excel in the SEC and nationally.
