Arkansas coach Bret Bielema brought his chef skills to the ESPN Cafe on Tuesday during his trip through the network’s Car Wash.
Bielema cooked an omelet for hosts Chris Cotter and Booger McFarland in a segment that aired Tuesday afternoon near the end of “College Football Live.”
“My wife loves eggs, so I make probably four or five omelets a week,” Bielema said. “I make it with a little bit of love, a little bit of care.
“I think we’ve got a great little layout here to get it done.”
Bielema whipped up a four-egg omelet that included onions, peppers, ham and mushroom.
“When I came to Arkansas, they wanted me to get to know our fanbase, so they asked me to start tweeting anything that I do in my home life,” Bielema explained while he cooked. “I love to cook, one of my favorite things to do. I’m not claiming I’m real good at it; I’m not claiming any awards or anything like that.”
Asked if his wife, Jen, likes his cooking, Bielema responded, “She likes it. Obviously I like it a little bit more, explains the size difference.”
After the segment was finished, Cotter praised Bielema’s omelet.
“That was pretty darn good,” Cotter said. “Coach Bielema can be an omelet chef for me anytime.”
