Tracking the Coaching Staffs


FAYETTEVILLE — Keeping track of coaching moves has become a daily routine around here.

New Arkansas coach Bret Bielema is adding assistant coaches and other personnel to his football staff, while the 2012 coaches are moving on to other opportuninities.

That was the case Monday, when Bret Bielema added Chris Hauser as his on-campus recruiting coordinator and Mark Taurisani as director of football operations. Former Arkansas defensive coordinator Paul Haynes, meanwhile, was offered and accepted the head coaching position at Kent State.

With plenty of moves remaining, we figured it would be a good time to set up a handy chart to sort out the comings and goings of staff members. We'll update it and repost it when other coaches join the Razorbacks or head elsewhere.

Also, we're just guessing on how Bielema plans to fill out his staff below (tight ends coach, secondary, etc.). It's the way his Wisconsin staff was set up.

Below is where things stand right now:
