Third Arkansas assistant coach leaving the Razorback program for UTSA
Sam Pittman’s Arkansas staff looks to be full of new faces next season as the Razorbacks have now lost three assistant coaches to the Texas San Antonio program.
If you missed the news, running backs coach Jeff Traylor has left Arkansas to become the new head coach at UTSA. Former interim coach/tight ends coach Barry Lunney Jr. also left Arkansas for UTSA. Now a third coach has left Fayetteville as UTSA has officially announced the hiring of special teams coordinator Daniel Da Prato.
Da Prato began the season as an off-the-field analyst for the Razorbacks but once Chad Morris was dismissed and Lunney was named interim head coach of the Arkansas program, Da Prato was elevated to special teams coordinator for Arkansas.
This news isn’t shocking but it continues to reinforce just how different things will look next season at Arkansas as the Sam Pittman era has already begun to take shape on The Hill.
