Austin Flynn set to transfer from Arkansas

A month after an off-field incident, Austin Flynn has decided to take his leave of the Arkansas football program, head coach Bret Bielema said Monday night.

By way of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Bielema told those in attendance at a Razorback Club meeting that the defensive end will transfer from UA.  Bielema cited academics, not the drunk-driving charge, as the reason behind Flynn’s departure.

There’s no word as to where the Wilmington, Calif., product may transfer.

During his first season with the Razorbacks in 2012, Flynn played in 12 games and was credited with 10 tackles.  Prior to his time at UA, Flynn had spent two seasons at a California junior college.

Last month, Flynn was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, careless driving and no proof of insurance.  A few hours after the arrest had come to light, Bielema vowed that the situation “will be handled swiftly and decisively.”

Flynn was listed on UA’s spring roster the school sent out last week.

    I haven’t worked it out yet, but somehow this is all Nick Saban’s fault.

    You should probably do some research before you make wide based, ignorant statements like that.

    In just government alone you have…well, first the President of Panama.

    17 Governers

    26 members of the house of representative

    6 seats on the US Senate


    How about the top executives of Walmart, Mars, Alltell, Verison, Fox…

    And I got all this just from Wiki…see, even a little bit of research will tell you…”Our football team may not always be great, but our Academics are pretty well handled”
