QB-Brandon Allen: "He's definitely got the resume. The Rose Bowls, the Big Ten championships. When I heard his resume, I was automatically excited about him. From meeting with him, the things he had to say and the direction he's trying to take this program in, I'm looking forward to it."
K-Zach Hocker: "We are excited. We had a team meeting about an hour ago and the excitement around the room and the emotion from the guys was unbelievable. We are ready to get this ball on the road and get going."
CB-Tevin Mitchel: "I think it's a great hire. I think we took our time and found a great coach. We found our target and got Coach B. I'm real thankful that we're able to get him. I've heard nothing but good things about him at Wisconsin. He's a great coach and I just know that he's going to build this program to be great."
FB- Kiero Small: "I was anxious, anxious to meet with him, that first time. He is a big guy. He walked in and was a big guy. You can tell that he has a sense of humor but you can also tell that he wants you to work. For the few hours that I have known him, that is what I have got."
DE-Chris Smith: "He's a kind of laid back guy, but he's not going to beat around the bush. He'll keep things straight up with us. He told us he just wants us to be successful. It's all up to us as long as we work hard from day one. He's happy to be here. Everybody's fired up. Razorback fans are fired up. Hopefully we can be successful next season."
C-Travis Swanson: "I like him a lot. He made a good first impression. I think he is going to fit in well here. I think the players are going to do a good job to fit into whatever system he brings in. Overall I think it is going to be good."
