The first episode of a mini-series titled “Being Bret Bielema” was released on Thursday, introducing the Arkansas coach as a polarizing figure who is unafraid of saying what’s on his mind.
The series is scheduled to have eight episodes running between eight and 10 minutes each. The first episode features Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long, Sports Illustrated writers Andy Staples and Pete Thamel and USA Today’s Dan Wolken among those who chime in on their opinions of Bielema.
In the first episode, Bielema explains some of his comments from the 2015 season, including famously telling reporters he was “looking forward to hopping on the wife” before correctly himself to say plane.
The second episode of the series is scheduled to be released on March 3.
