Bret Bielema’s staff now has a little bit of NFL flavor.
Arkansas announced the hiring of offensive line coach Kurt Anderson on Saturday night after reports earlier in the day indicated the move was likely to be made. Anderson spent the past three years as an assistant offensive line coach with the Buffalo Bills.
Anderson replaces Sam Pittman, who joined Kirby Smart’s staff at UGA.
Included in the announcement from Arkansas was a quote from Bills head coach Rex Ryan.
“I’m proud to have coached with him and the Arkansas offensive linemen are to (sic) lucky to have him,” Ryan said. “I know how big of a hire this is for coach Bielema and I can promise he got the right guy.”
