A former Arkansas defensive lineman will become the Razorbacks’ new radio sideline reporter.
As announced by Arkansas on Thursday, Geno Bell will join the IMG Razorback Sports Network next football season and work with Chuck Barrett and Quinn Grovey during the broadcasts. Bell played for Arkansas from 1993-95 and in 1997 after missing the 1996 season because of injury. He had 185 tackles, including 28 for loss, 11 sacks, 4 pass breakups and 3 fumble recoveries during his time in Fayetteville. He’s tied for 22nd in program history in career tackles for loss, and he’s tied for 19th in career sacks.
“As a former student-athlete and graduate of the U of A, some of the best times of my life were spent being a Hog,” Bell said in a release. “I learned invaluable life lessons on and off the field that have positively influenced my personal and professional life — one of the most important being to always recognize the privilege and responsibility of representing something larger than yourself.
“I am humbled knowing that this first-class athletic program could have selected from rosters full of worthy men and women. It is an honor and my sincere pleasure to be invited back to be a part of the Razorback Family that I love so much. I look forward to engaging all of the Arkansas Razorback fans as the new sideline reporter for the upcoming 2017 football season.”
Arkansas closed 7-6 last season, capped by a loss to Virginia Tech in the Belk Bowl.
