Arkansas hires Barry Lunney JR as TE coach.



Lunney was previously the OC at Bentonville HS being groomed by the best HS coach to coach in the state.

Lunney was a QB for the Razorbacks in the early 90s, he has previously coached at Tulsa and San Jose State University on the collegiate level.

Lunney was selected over Georgia State OC John Bond and current Auburn TE coach Tim Horton.

Really random but why would you go from already coaching in college to a high school?

Not sure his exact reasons, but he started out as GA at Arkansas then went on as a QB coach at Tulsa eventually moving up to Co-OC at SJSU.

He has spent the past 8 years as OC coaching with his Dad at Bentonville.

He played for his dad at Southside (Ft. Smith AR) HS.

Good to me too. Honestly the odds of that NOT being overturned at Bama? I don't like them.

Got married and started a family. Arkansas is the only place at this time he was interested in coaching. He doesn't even have to move and his wife doesn't have to work any longer.
