    With the big news that Bret Bielema is coming to Arkansas to coach the hogs, many people are getting more interested in who this man is.

    Here are a few fun facts we found about the life-long Midwesterner who is now headed down South to be Head Hog coach:

    -Bret married his wife, Jen, on March 10 of this year, after dating for 4 years

    -The two met at a blackjack table in Las Vegas. She was visiting Vegas with her best friend and her husband; he was there for UW work.

    -While Jen is from Florida, she was intrigued that Bret was from Wisconsin since her family spent summer vacations in Oshkosh, WI growing up

    -Bret shouldn't have a problem calling the hogs. He grew up on a pig farm in Illinois.

    -Bret played football at Iowa, and has a tattoo of an Iowa tiger hawk on his leg

    -Bret supports Komen for the Cure, as his mom has battled breast cancer, and has hosted an annual fundrasier for the cause with his UW football program

    -As a kid, he wanted to be a professional football player

    -Much of Bret's wardrobe may be repurposed. Wisconsin red and Arkansas use the exact same shade of red (PMS 200)
