After a three-hour executive session, the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees appears to have not taken action regarding the employment of Athletic Director Jeff Long or Razorback Head Coach Bret Bielema.

The board met over the past two days, with earlier reports suggesting they had discussions with Chancellor Joseph E. Steinmetz and Long on Thursday morning. The Board of Trustees vice-chair later clarified Long was not inside of the executive session but would not comment on if the chancellor was.

"[Reporter: At this point is the board backing Jeff long as well as Brett Bielema?] That discussion pertaining to personnel would be out of order outside that executive session," said Vice-Chair Mark Waldrip. Several questions were asked, pertaining to the future of the Hogs program, but Waldrip continued to give the same answer; that it was part of an executive session, he would not comment further.
