FAYETTEVILLE — Brad Davis, the Arkansas offensive line coach who was recruited by and played for Arkansas Coach Sam Pittman when Pittman coached the Sooners’ offensive line and was an offensive line coaching grad assistant when Pittman coached North Carolina’s offensive line, apparently is leaving Arkansas to return to Louisiana as LSU’s offensive line coach, it was reported Thursday by multiple media sources in Louisiana and Arkansas.
Davis, nicknamed “Hot Sauce,” when he played at Oklahoma because of his Louisiana background, is a native of Baton Rouge, La. where Louisiana State University has its campus.
LSU Coach Ed Orgeron wasted no time attracting Davis having only Wednesday fired offensive line coach James Cregg.
Before coming to Arkansas, Davis most recently had coached the offensive line at Missouri under former Missouri Head Coach and second-year Arkansas defensive coordinator Barry Odom.
Davis becomes the second Arkansas assistant leaving to return his home state. Last winter former Arkansas receivers coach and Columbia, S.C. native Justin Stepp became the receivers coach for the South Carolina Gamecocks.
