Report: Chad Morris hires new assistant to Arkansas coaching staff
The Arkansas Razorbacks added to their coaching staff on Saturday, and it came at the expense of the Colorado Buffaloes.
After Daniel Da Prato resigned from the Buffaloes, it was reported by 247Sports that he’d be heading to Fayetteville to join coach Chad Morris’s staff.
Per the report, Da Prato is expected to serve as a special teams quality control coach under Morris for the 2019 season:
At Colorado, Da Prato served as a quality control coach for the Buffaloes’ special teams, and he’s expected to have a similar role for the Razorbacks. Arkansas’ former special teams quality control coach, Tanner Burns, left the program last month to become Liberty’s special teams coordinator under new head coach Hugh Freeze.
That fills a spot on the Razorbacks’ staff, and it remains to be seen if Morris makes any more hires before the 2019 season begins.
