Aside from interim Barry Lunney Jr., another head coaching candidate still a possibility at Arkansas
After Ole Miss reportedly landed Arkansas coaching target Lane Kiffin, the Razorbacks are scrambling to find a backup plan.
There have been reports that the Hogs may promote interim coach Barry Lunney Jr. to the full-time job, but there are other options out there, too.
One option, per USA TODAY’s George Schroeder, is Arkansas native Eli Drinkwitz, who is currently coaching Appalachian State:

Bringing in Lunney full time might not inspire the Arkansas fan base, which will be an important job for the new Hogs coach.
The Razorbacks have options. Now it’ll be up to AD Hunter Yurachek to make the right decision for Arkansas’s future.
