Report: Two coaches emerging as candidates for head coach position at Arkansas
It is being reported that two coaches are emerging as candidates for the open head coaching position at Arkansas.
The Arkansas Razorbacks are looking for a new head coach after firing Bret Bielema following a 4-8 record this season. Bielema could never lead the Hogs to consistent results over five seasons and finished his Arkansas career with a 29-34 overall record.
The Razorbacks are still searching for their next head coach but two names have been rumored to be candidates for the position. According to Barrett Sallee with CBS Sports, the two coaches linked to the vacancy are Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables and Memphis head coach Mike Norvell.
Venables does not have head coaching experience but is regarded as one of the top assistants in the country. He has helped lead the Tigers to back-to-back College Football Playoff appearances and a Playoff championship last season.
Norvell is in his second season at Memphis and has turned in two strong seasons. The Tigers went 8-5 in his first season and are 10-1 this year.
Everything remains speculation at this point, but it will be interesting to watch how things develop at Arkansas.
