Just thought I'd pass this along. Tim Horton blasted the text below to Arkansas High School coaches tonight. I suspect he and Gus will be a constant thorn in CBB's side. Wish CBB had found a place on his staff for one Arkansas guy. Hired what, 4 guys who are South FL guys? Seems like one Arkansas guy might have been a good idea.
Here's the text:
"Just a text to thank you for helping make my 6 years as an assistant coach at Arkansas such a wonderful experience. The opportunity to recruit your school has been very special to me. Your friendship and support mean so much and I am now thrilled to be an Auburn Tiger! My new cell phone number is
. Continue to be a "difference maker" for kids! God Bless, Coach Tim Horton

The time of hiring mediocre coaches because they're good guys is over with.
The man has to take care of his own, but he's going to evolve into a very polarizing figure the next few years once the Auburn offers go out. Just another debate that will divide our fan base into separate camps.
He tried to hire Tim Horton.
I'm only responsible for what I SAY, not for what YOU UNDERSTAND.
And you know this how? On the field coach or what?
He tried to hire Horton.
If Auburn wants to spend a whole lot of time in Arkansas recruiting let them. I would rather them recruit here than in the place s they should be. There's not enough talent in this state to pull Auburn out of the crap hole Chizik and yes the Almighty Gus have them in.
For what position?
Keep hearing administrative not coaching
Really don't know I feel about this one... TH was an ok RB Coach but a great recruiter.. I hate the fact AU has another influence in Arkansas...
Administrative and not as a position coach (offered as a saving face thing). CBB didn't want him. Anyone who says different is part of Team Horton and buddies with him (Horton funneled a lot of private internal info to the media- I would miss him to if I was his pal in the media). The spin is mind blowing.
Believe what you want, but try to put objective glasses on and look through the motives/agenda.
Good luck to him, but it is time Arkansas totally eliminates the GOB system once and for all. The future is bright.
They are already talk about Tim Horton trying to flip Hunter Henry....
It is always fun to come to Razorback boards and hear the praise for other team's coaches.....you know, the coaches that are hired guns to kill the Hogs.
FACEBOOK is for friends, sports boards should be about your team beating the people they are up against
Well that is his job now. I don't know what people expect. He is going to come after every instate really recruit now because that's his territory.
I will now take this info and phone number to tBB. Time to have some fun.
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
Thorn in our side? Barely got the in-state players to stay in most cases, no worries.
Buckeye State of Mind.
Tim was offered TE job and a raise not an administration. Not sure where you got that info but there are other things involved besides money and job title. Everything has to be on the same page.
Tim was never offered any coaching position. CBB found out what everyone else knew, Tim wasn't a good position coach. He does great PR like his daddy which compensates for his lack of coaching skills. Not a bad guy, but not a saint like some are making him out to be. Plus there are more than a few hs coaches who don't care for him.
My source is as close as you can get on this. I'm a newbie here, so I don't expect anyone to believe me which is fine. I know the truth.
You are saying he was offered an admin role there are no admin roles left. I don't care if you believe it or not but I know one person on here that knows the truth.
Admin positions can be added at any time for anything. A made up position. Doesn't even have to be football related. Bottomline is Bret did not want the guy.
Not going to debate it anymore. I said what I know and people can believe what they want. I just wanted to ask people to look past the apparent agendas of some people.
Thank You Jeff Long. Cleaning the house is almost complete.
I don't believe there is a limit on admin roles, is there? I've always been under the impression that that is what separates the elite schools from everyone else. Those are the guys that have massive support staffs. I seem to remember reading once that Alabama had significantly more people helping out behind the scenes than us.
Following up on this.
This past year, we had:
Director of High School Relations
Director of On-Campus Recruiting/Eligibility. Coordinator
Director of Football Operations
Associate Athletics Director/Football
Assistant Director/Football Operations
Director of Player Personnel
Assistant Director of Player Personnel
Director of Player Development
Director of Player Development
Recruiting Operations Coordinator
And that's not even counting the 8 "football analysts" they have on their support staff. I couldn't find any record of if we have anyone in that type of role.

Ok we will see if we hire anyone in another role, then and I seriously doubt we do. Otis Kirk has told you guys he was offered the job and a raise. If you think he would get a raise in an admin role then I have nothing else to say. If Taver Johnson took a 25k pay cut and stayed on the field do you really believe Tim Horton was offered a raise to get off the field?
Who knows what happened. I'm just providing supporting evidence that you can have more than 3 administrative personnel. There isnt a rule against it. You just have to be willing to pay them. Who knows how much those guys make at Bama.
