Arkansas’ offensive line coach, Brad Davis is expected to take the same position at LSU.
Davis is a Baton Rogue native and graduated from Belaire High School. He chose to attend college at the University of Oklahoma. While he played for the Sooners he was a part of two Big 12 championship teams and the 2000 national championship team. He was also highly respected amongst his peers as he was named the Most Valuable Offensive Lineman in 2002.
Although he is going home to coach, this will be his fourth different job in five seasons. 2017 with Florida, 2018-2019 at Missouri and 2020 with Arkansas.
Under Davis, Arkansas’ offensive line watched out for graduate transfer Feleipe Franks. The Hogs passed for 245 yards and rushed for 154 yards per game last season which were both higher than the previous seasons under the Chad Morris staff.
Early rumors are flying around that it could be Randy Clement who takes Davis’ spot as offensive line coach.
Clement coached under Lane Kiffin while he was head coach at FAU. Clement would also be reuniting with his former offensive coordinator Kendal Briles at Arkansas.

We will update this thread as more information comes out.
4:44 PM update: I have been told that Clement will not be the guy at Arkansas.
5:11 PM: Cody Kennedy, the current tight ends coach is a candidate for the position. Another name to keep an eye on is Eric Mateos who is a former graduate assistant at Arkansas. He is currently on staff at Baylor after spending the previous few years with BYU.
