Wally Burnham, a long-time defensive coordinator, is reportedly teaming up with his former boss at Arkansas.
As reported by Tommy Birch of The Des Moines Register, Burnham will work as a defensive analyst for the Razorbacks. Paul Rhoads, the Razorbacks’ defensive backs coach, joined with Arkansas coach Bret Bielema to lure the 74-year-old out of retirement.
Burnham worked under Rhoads as a defensive coordinator/linebackers coach at Iowa State, where Rhoads coached from 2009 to 2015. After Rhoads was fired, Burnham chose to retire.
“It’s not a hell of a lot of responsibility,” Burnham told The Des Moines Register. “It’s a lot of fun. I’m enjoying it.”
