Former Montana State head coach Rob Ash will join Arkansas’ football staff as an offensive analyst, the UA athletic department announced in a news release Thursday.
“We are very excited to add another quality coach with head coaching experience to our program,” Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said in the release. “Rob will work with our staff in advanced preparation and also various projects with me. His background and experience within college football align him well with our program.”
Ash has spent 36 seasons as a head coach with stops at NCAA Division III Juniata College (1980-89), Drake (1989-2006) and Montana State (2007-2015).
He has 246 career wins as a head coach, and is the all-time wins leader at each of those three schools.
During his time at Montana State, his teams won three Big Sky Conference titles and earned four trips to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs. Ash was the FCS Coach of the Year in 2011.
