Noah Ferguson | 15 November, 2017, 19:27

According to multiple reports, Jeff Long is out as the school's head of the athletic department.

Long was relieved of his duties Wednesday morning. The team did experience positive results with a 34-17 record in Petrino's four seasons, but his departure came as the result of an ugly scandal that involved an adulterous affair.

During Long's time as athletic director, Arkansas became conference champions 29 times and continued to 123 post-season playoffs. He coached football at North Carolina State, Duke and MI over a five-year span. Nationally, Long has been regarded as one of the top athletic directors in the country, and his name is regularly mentioned when there are openings at other major institutions.

He was also assistant director of athletics at Virginia Tech and Oklahoma and served as athletic director at Eastern Kentucky and Pittsburgh before accepting the Arkansas position.

Long then hired current coach Bret Bielema in 2013.
