Former Arkansas-Pine Bluff defensive coordinator Alonzo Hampton has joined Chad Morris’ staff at the University of Arkansas as a defensive analyst.

Hampton posted the update on his Twitter page Monday, and UA confirmed his hiring.

Hampton is a former prep coach at Warren and Dumas in south Arkansas with 11 years of experience in college, including six on the Division I level at Western Kentucky, South Florida, Oregon and Florida State on the staffs of Willie Taggart.

He was UAPB’s cornerbacks coach in 2006, handled all defensive backs the next two years, then added defensive coordinator to his duties for the Golden Lions in 2009-10.
