FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The following statement is from University of Arkansas Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long regarding Mal Moore:
“Mal Moore has left an indelible mark on the University of Alabama, much like Frank Broyles has done here at Arkansas, and the Crimson Tide Athletic Program has achieved tremendous success under Mal’s leadership. I have enjoyed getting to know him and working with him over the past five years and appreciate the manner in which he welcomed me to the circle of SEC Athletic Directors. I will miss Mal on a professional and personal level and wish him the very best as he focuses on his recovery.”

Very classy of Jeff Long... I already had much respect for him after he made the call to fire Petrino. This statement about Coach Moore makes me respect him that much more as an AD and a human being. Thanks for sharing Chris!
Very respectful and classy Mr Long.
Class. Some still have it.

Very impressed with Long. He could have easily kept Petrino but he stood on his principles and this is just pure class. Not to mention getting Bielema and especially Anderson...I don't know if he's on our radar or if he'd be interested, but I certainly wouldn't complain if he was announced as the new AD.
EDIT: According to a guy on the Hawgs247 staff he has a $1 million buyout that would "make it prohibitive". Kind of funny how questionable assistant coach hires get multi-million buyouts but one million is high for the guys in charge of those hires.
Incidentally, just saw Machine's post. Great minds think alike.

That is class.
But the closest the Barn can come to class is being crass
