Yesterday afternoon a name was reportedly linked to the Arkansas Razorbacks Coaching Search. Matt Campbell of Iowa State has been in talks with the Arkansas Administrators who are looking for a new head coach.
Campbell was head coach at Toledo from 2011-2015, and before that he had been an assistant at Toledo, Bowling Green and Mount Union.
His overall head coaching record is 62-38, 3-2 in bowl games. He was 36-15 at Toledo, 24-8 in conference play.
Since joining Iowa State as the head coach, his first season was 3-9, which begun a rebuilding process. Something that the Razorbacks team will need to do with their next hire. The past 3 seasons include, 8-5, 8-5, and 7-4 this season. He is 18-17 overall in conference at Iowa State. Including a 1-1 record in bowl games at Iowa State.
If he is hired at the UofA then it will be a step up so to speak in the SEC for him. He will have to be able to recruit in Texas where Arkansas has struggled at times to get athletes. Not to mention trying to keep the in state kids at home.
Tell me what you think of Matt Campbell and if you would like this hire in the comments.
Thank you all and WPS GoHawgs!!!
