Phillip Fulmer is now denying the report from his former assistant coach that he's been in contact with Arkansas about its vacant head coaching job. Well, sort of. The full quote is this: "I have not been contacted by Arkansas. But I think Arkansas is a great place." That leaves wiggle room for him to have been contacted by people who are not employed by Arkansas yet who are nonetheless involved with the process of hiring a new boss hog. Perhaps nothing really has happened, but it's far from a strong denial in the language of coaching searches.
