Mitch Mustain was supposed to be the savior of the Arkansas football program. Unfortunately, the unanimous five-star recruit’s career in Fayetteville did not pan out as planned.
Mustain — the Razorbacks’ starter as a true freshman in 2006 — transferred after just one year in the program after then-Arkansas offensive coordinator left the program. Malzahn, in fact, was Mustain’s high school coach, and the two were closely tied, which explains why Mustain requested a transfer just one day after Malzahn left.
On Saturday, Mustain was asked about the possibility of Malzahn taking over as the head coach of the Razorbacks. His response was, needless to say, interesting:
There appears to be no love lost between Mustain and his former school, but it’s clear that he still believes in his old coach’s ability to build a winner.
