During a news conference today in the State Capitol, Gov. Beebe was asked what he thought about UA's selection of Bret Bielema as head coach.
Beebe says Bielema's selection took him by surprised, but he's sure Bielema will do a good job.
Gov. Beebe did say he was disappointed to see Arkansas State University lose Gus Malzahn to Auburn, but says he's sure ASU will select a good coach to replace him.
