Razorbacks head coach Bret Bielema told me on my NBC Sports Radio show how much Dallas Cowboys owner and former Arkansas player Jerry Jones has helped him because of his generosity saying, “One of the best things about my job is my relationship with Jerry and Stephen Jones (former player) and the family. They gave us an unbelievable facility that is the showcase of our recruiting efforts and houses not only state of the art student-athlete performance center for academics but also a dining hall that by NCAA rules now we are able to maximize and utilize to recruit has been a game changer for us."
The family donated the school over ten million dollars according to the Dallas Cowboys for a complex that is impressive.
The Hogs head coach recognizes this is a special year for Jones who will inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame saying, "Also you add to be able to go Jerry’s World this year, (Arkansas plays Texas A&M in Arlington, Texas) in a year when he’s getting inducted into the Hall of Fame, that’s truly, truly a special thing we’re all excited to be a part of.”
