As you might expect, plenty of former Razorbacks had opinions on what happened at Bud Walton Arena.
Former Hog golfer, John Daly, said via his Twitter handle, @PGA_JohnDaly:
"My first loyalty is to the University of Arkansas. I trust that Jeff Long will do what's best for the program. Everyone in the Razorback Nation is devastated! This is heartbreaking as Coach Petrino is a very good friend of mine! From here, I think we will need a great coach like him to continue our winning ways! I myself, would hold out for a great NFL coach---GRUDEN! #GoHogs"
Former Hog quarterback Ryan Mallett talked highly of former offensive coordinator Garrick McGee, @Ryan_Mallett_15 said:
"GM only coach Ark should look at if they wanna win now"
Drew Smyly played baseball at Arkansas, he said on his handle, @SmylyD:
"It had to be done. Jeff Long is a great AD. Arkansas fans should be happy to have him. He will get the program back with a better coach"
And former Hog football player D.J. Williams told the fans not to worry on his handle, @dj45williams:
"Don't worry hog nation!! I got the offense down. I can step in and coach. I got this !"
