Ole Miss trying to hire Arkansas assistant, per reports
Ole Miss has undergone some major coaching staff turnover this offseason, losing coordinators Jeff Lebby and DJ Durkin, along with a handful of other assistants.
Arkansas hasn’t had that much turnover, though the Hogs reportedly fired DL coach Jermial Ashley over the weekend.
Now, per reports, the Hogs could be losing another assistant. The Rebels are reportedly targeting Arkansas CB coach Sam Carter for the same position in Oxford:

The reports state that Arkansas hopes to keep Carter in Fayetteville, but nothing has been finalized either way as of yet.
Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin recently parted ways with CB coach Terrell Buckley. Carter came to Arkansas ahead of the 2021 season.
