Bret Bielema Biography
Bret Bielema was born January 13, 1970 and is an American college football coach and current head coach of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks football team. He has been hired after coaching at Wisconsin since 2006, achieving a 6019 record through the conclusion of the 2011 season. Bielema's 2011 salary of $2.5 million made him the 17th highest paid coach in the Football Bowl Subdivision. In January 2012, after leading the Badgers to their first back-to-back Rose Bowls in twelve years, Bielema's contract was extended until January 31, 2017.
In his first season as head coach of the Wisconsin Badgers in 2006, Bielema's team ended the regular season 111 (71 in Big Ten Conference play). With the 353 defeat of the University at Buffalo on November 18, 2006, Bielema became the first coach in UW history to win 11 games in the regular season. After a 1714 victory over the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Capital One Bowl on January 1, 2007, he became the third coach in NCAA history to win 12 games in his rookie season, finishing 121.
With a 140 victory over the San Diego State on September 16, 2006, Bielema became the third Wisconsin head coach to win the first three games of his career. Later, with a 243 win over Purdue on October 21, Bielema tied the record for most wins by a first-year coach at UW with seven. The other two coaches to complete this feat were Philip King in 1896 and William Juneau in 1912. A 3024 victory over the Fighting Illini on October 28, Bielema became the first coach in Wisconsin history to win eight games in his first season. He then extended the record with his ninth victory on November 4, defeating the Penn State Nittany Lions, 133. With a 2421 victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes on November 11, Bielema became the first head coach in Big Ten history to win ten games in his first season.
Bielema coached Wisconsin to victories in 17 of his first 18 games. That represents the second-best start to a head coaching career in Big Ten history. Only Michigan's Fielding H. Yost, who went 5501 from 19011905, had a better beginning to a career.
On October 16, 2010, Bielema's Badgers defeated #1-ranked Ohio State, 3118, in Madison. It was Wisconsin's first victory over a #1-ranked team since 1981 when the Badgers upset Michigan.
Bielema has been named a finalist for the Bear Bryant Award which is given to college football's Coach of the Year. The other finalists are Chris Ault of Nevada, Gene Chizik of Auburn, Mark Dantonio of Michigan State, Jim Harbaugh of Stanford, Chip Kelly of Oregon, Gary Patterson of TCU, Bobby Petrino of Arkansas and Mike Sherman of Texas A&M. Bielema is fond of red windbreakers and wears the same one superstitiously every Saturday.
On December 4, 2012, Bielema accepted the head coaching position at the University of Arkansas.
