Arkansas is still looking for a football coach after Tommy Bowden decided to keep his current job at Clemson on Tuesday.
Bowden apparently agreed to a contract extension with a better buyout in case he is fired, according to sources at Clemson.
It was believed that Bowden talked to Arkansas officials about taking the job vacated by Houston Nutt one week ago. Nutt is now head coach at Ole Miss.
Bowden had three years left on his contract, but that deal was sweetened after his talks with Arkansas escalated on Monday. Bowden was at his office in Clemson. He told his staff that he was staying at Clemson.
There were reports Monday that Bowden was among three finalists for the Arkansas vacancy. The other two coaches mentioned were Tulsa assistant Gus Malzahn, an offensive coordinator, and Michigan assistant Ron English, a defensive coordinator. Malzahn served as Arkansas offensive coordinator in 2006 before moving to Tulsa for the '07 season.
There has also been speculation that others are on the Arkansas list, although those names have yet to surface.
