Arkansas hires Rhoads as new defensive backs coach

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Arkansas has hired former Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads as its new defensive backs coach.

Rhoads, 49, was fired by the Cyclones in November after seven seasons at the school, compiling a 32-55 record, including 3-9 in his final season. The position was Rhoads’ first as a head coach, following a combined nine seasons as a defensive coordinator at Pittsburgh and Auburn.

While at Pittsburgh, Rhoads coached future NFL Pro Bowl selection Darrelle Revis, one of six defensive backs Rhoads has coached who have been selected in the NFL draft.

Rhoads replaces Clay Jennings, who left Arkansas for the same position at Texas last week.
