FAYETTEVILLE — FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas offensive line coach Brad Davis is leaving the program after one season.
Davis, 41 and a native of Baton Rouge, La., has been hired at SEC West rival LSU, he announced Friday. Davis was the first official assistant coaching hire for Razorbacks coach Sam Pittman in 2019.
“I am grateful for the time I spent in Fayetteville and the relationships that were made,” Davis posted to his Twitter account Friday morning. “I am thankful for the coaching staff and the players who worked tirelessly to return the program back to one the fans could be proud of.
“I’m most grateful for Coach Pittman not only believing in me but pouring into me for more than half my life. I am disappointed to not finish the journey we began, but I am excited to return home to my native city and enjoy my parents and siblings. Arkansas is in great hands under Coach Pittman’s watch.”
LSU coach Ed Orgeron parted ways with former Tigers offensive line coach James Cregg on Wednesday. Cregg had spent the previous three seasons at LSU.
Prior to his lone season at Arkansas, Davis served two seasons as offensive line coach at Missouri. In 2017, he was offensive line coach at Florida.
