New staff coming together

Although no hires have been made official, here are the coaches and staffers who appear to be headed to Arkansas from SMU:

Joe Craddock, Offensive Coordinator

Justin Stepp, Receivers Coach

Dustin Fry, Offensive Line

Mark Smith, Recruiting Coordinator who might also end up in an on-field role

Randy Ross, Director of Operations

We believe there is a good chance Jeff Traylor, the current SMU interim coach, could end up at Arkansas as running backs coach, and I would not rule out a spot for Barry Lunney Jr. on the new staff, either in an on-field or support staff position. I would be surprised if any other Bielema assistants are retained.
