Former Tennessee offensive coordinator Jim Chaney was hired
by new Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema on Wednesday night. The former St. Louis Rams assistant spent the last four seasons with the Volunteers and was the team's interim head coach for their season finale this season following the firing of former coach Derek Dooley.
"He knows the SEC, having coached at Tennessee, and is familiar with what it takes to be successful in this conference," Bielema said in a statement. "He is an upbeat and positive person who has proven at every stop he is an elite coach in our profession."
