The Arkansas Razorback Foundation stopped paying former coach Bret Bielema and now he’s teamed up with attorney Tom Mars to file a lawsuit, according to multiple reports Friday afternoon.
Bielema claims the lawsuit is because the foundation is not paying the balance of his $12 million buyout from the school, which was agreed upon after he was fired in 2017.
Bielema’s contract with Arkansas included a $12 million buyout if the school chose to fire him.
The rest of Bret Bielema’s lawsuit against the Razorback Foundation has been filed. It doesn’t mince words. Accuses the Foundation of “calculated, bad faith efforts to renege on its contractural obligations.” pic.twitter.com/Zi46533acr
