08:14 AM ET 12.12 | The line forming on the way out of Madison may be growing as "The Granddaddy of Them All" approaches. [Wisconsin] defensive coordinator Chris Ash is following former Badgers coach Bret Bielema to Arkansas after the Rose Bowl game. ... That's only the first move of what could be an exodus of the current coaching staff. Multiple UW sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not cleared to comment on such matters, said defensive line coach Charlie Partridge and linebackers coach Andy Buh are both weighing multiple offers, but have not decided what to do. Two sources also confirmed receivers coach Zach Azzanni is considering an offer from Tennessee.

Can't blame them for looking...

New coach may not like the aroma of their cheese and bring his own to the party!

The DC following him to Arky is no shock, but who is going to be the OC is the big question.

Coach B looks like a badger in that picture......talk a/b someone born to coach Wisky. Still can't believe he left.

He damn sure does. He could have doubled as the mascot.

I still can't believe that a SEC team didn't have a good assit coach that could/would have took the Arky HC job. IMO, Bielema is the wrong man. I hope for Arky fans that I'm wrong!!!

Jones is rapidly filling positions on his staff. I'm glad he decided to keep Graham as RB coach.

No, not really...IMO, it's not a great fit. I always thought at Arky, we would have to out-scheme superior teams/players to win b/c we would never be able to recruit the same level of talent at LUS, Gump, etc. I wanted Gundy or Briles and try to ride the spread wave. With Coach B, we're trying to out-Alabama Alabama...same thing with LUS. Not sure it will work.

I honestly just never liked the guy as Wisky....whiner and runs up the score. Now he's my guy, so I'm conflicted. I had an opportunity to go to the press conference and spend a minute or 2 w/ him and his wife afterwards (she's hawt, btw), and I came away much more impressed after the presser.

I'll take a wait and see attitude. Hope its a better fit that I think it is....hope he continues to grow on me, and I hope we win some football games. I'll still support Arky....just wish this wasn't Long's selection.

Kiffin offered him 500k, which is some serious lettuce for a WR coach. UTk offered him 350. Plus, he's only be in LA for a year, probably didn't want to move again.

And if the sad sad rumor is true, the football office didn't arrange a pickup for him. So sad...
