New coaching faces will roam sidelines this fall for Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Arkansas quarterbacks coach Alex Wood
will shift his attention to the other end of the passing attack as
the new receivers coach for the Razorbacks, head coach Houston Nutt
said Tuesday.
Nutt confirmed Wood's move and two others as he completed a
staff realignment preparing for next season.
In addition to Wood's shift, Louis Campbell -- who coached
defensive backs last season -- will move off the playing field and
into an office to become assistant athletic director, as athletic
director Frank Broyles prepares to retire at the end of the year.
Chris Vaughn, in the meantime, will move from an office job as
director of on-campus recruiting to become safeties coach.
Campbell's new job will give him some responsibilities for
football operations, but he will also have duties involving other
sports and special events. He served as an administrator for eight
years as football operations director following jobs as an
assistant at Alabama, SMU, Oklahoma State and Arkansas and with
Tampa Bay of the NFL.
Vaughn's switch also represents a return to familiar
surroundings. Before moving to the recruiting post, he coached
safeties or outside linebackers for seven seasons.
David Lee, hired from the Dallas Cowboys to take the place of
former offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn, will take over Wood's
former duties as quarterbacks coach. Malzahn served for just a
season as offensive coordinator after leading Springdale High
School to a state championship.
