Reaction to Horton's departure
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/WILLIAM MOORE Arkansas coaches Tim Horton and Paul Petrino lead their players in warm ups before the start of the annual Red-White game Saturday, April 21, 2012 at Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville
LOS ANGELES Here's some thoughts about Tim Horton leaving Arkansas and being named to the Auburn coaching staff.
North Little Rock RB Altee Tenpenny said "I'm upset" in a text message when asked about Horton leaving.
Greenwood athlete Drew Morgan said in a text message Horton leaving doesn't affect his commitment to Arkansas at all.
North Little Rock coach Brad Bolding said "On a personal level, I'm very disappointed to see him go. But as a coach, coaches have to make tough decisions. I'm sure it's tough on both parties. Arkansas will be ok. Tim will be missed."
Arkansas commitment and TE Hunter Henry of Pulaski Academy will have no comment, according to his father Mark.
