Arkansas defensive line coach Rory Segrest will not be jumping to the NFL.
Segrest announced on Twitter that he would be staying in Fayetteville, Ark., after reports surfaced that suggested Segrest would be leaving Arkansas to become the defensive line coach for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Segrest’s prior experience coaching in Philadelphia gave the reports some merit. He spent five seasons between 2006-10 with the Eagles before taking the defensive line coach job at Samford in 2011.
Segrest joined Bret Bielema’s staff in 2011. The Razorbacks finished 99th in the country with a total of 20 sacks in 2015.
