FAYETTEVILLE Chris Sartorius, who has spent the last two seasons working with Arkansas' basketball program, has been hired as an assistant coach at Central Arkansas.
Sartorius came with Mike Anderson from his alma mater Missouri in 2011. He was a graduate assistant coach last season after spending the 2011-12 season as a Razorbacks team manager.
He was hired by UCA head coach Corliss Williamson, a former Arkansas all-American who played for Anderson when he was an assistant coach for the Razorbacks.
"All Razorback Basketball players, coaches, & staff are so proud to have our hard working Chris Sartorius get (assistant) job at UCA under Corliss," wrote Razorbacks assistant coach Matt Zimmerman on Twitter.
Wrote Arkansas assistant TJ Cleveland, "Congrats to Chris Sartorius on his new job at UCA. The hardest worker that I've been associated with. Hard work & loyalty has paid off!"
UCA finished Williamson's third season with a 13-17 record, including a 7-11 mark in the Southland Conference.
