Arkansas names NFL assistant as new offensive line coach
Arkansas reached into the NFL ranks to replace offensive line coach Sam Pittman.
The Razorbacks have hired Buffalo Bills assistant offensive line coach Kurt Anderson to fill the role. Anderson has spent the last three seasons in Buffalo, which led the NFL in rushing yards per game (152) and yards per rush (4.8) this season.
For the first time in franchise history, the Bills had three players who rushed for at least 500 yards (running backs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams along with quarterback Tyrod Taylor).
Meanwhile, Arkansas is coming off a season in which it finished 4th in the SEC in rushing yards per game (197.3) and yards per rush (5.0).
I appreciate everything that the Buffalo Bills and the Western NY community has provided for me and my family. I will forever be #BillsMafia
