Arkansas loses RB coach to New Orleans Saints
Arkansas has lost its running backs coach Joel Thomas to the New Orleans Saints, it has been reported.
Sports Illustrated senior writer Thayer Evans tweeted the news first, saying: “Arkansas RBs coach Joel Thomas has accepted same job w/ New Orleans Saints per sources.”
Last year Arkansas was 24th in the nation in rushing offense, running for 2,834 total yards (218 yards per game). The running game – led by RBs Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams – ran for around 5 yards per rush and 31 touchdowns.
The news comes just a few weeks after Thomas signed a contract extension with the school worth $280,000 per season.
