According to multiple reports, USF athletic director Mark Harlan interviewed for the same position at the University of Arkansas over the weekend.

A report by wholehogsports.com, claims that a plane registered to the Razorback Foundation flew on Sunday from Fayetteville to Little Rock and on to Tampa.

The plane made a few other stops along the way, as reported here by Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times.

Harlan, the Bulls AD since March of 2014, was most recently praised for his quick hiring of current football coach Charlie Strong back in December of last year. Strong, according to the report, is also on the list for the Razorbacks current coaching vacancy.

Longtime Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Sports Columnist, Wally Hall, tweeted this Sunday evening.

Knight was able to catch up with Harlan on Monday morning.

Harlan, an Arizona alum and Los Angeles native, has guided USF's student-athletes to a Graduation Success Rate of better than 80 percent for the fourth consecutive year.
