Arkansas Will Hire Surprising Candidate As New Coach

Arkansas will hire a surprising candidate as their new coach, it would appear.

According to Georgia Schroeder of USA Today, the Razorbacks will respond to being jilted by Lane Kiffin in an unexpected way.

On the heels of Kiffin reportedly heading to Ole Miss, it is being said that Arkansas will simply likely promote interim head coach Barry Lunney Jr. to the official job.

“The situation at Arkansas isn’t settled — but after a fruitless search, signs are pointing toward promoting Barry Lunney Jr., an alum/former star QB who has been the interim coach since Chad Morris’ firing,” Schroeder tweeted out.

Lunney previously served as an assistant coach for the Razorbacks after having been a star quarterback for the program.

Given the big names that were previously mentioned for this job like Kiffin and Justin Fuente, it is hard to look at this as anything other than settling.
