After naming the Hogs' new coordinators on Tuesday, Chad Morris formally announced four more offensive coaches, likely completing his staff on that side of the ball.

Joe Craddock, who worked with Morris at SMU and Clemson, will be the offensive coordinator.

Jeff Traylor – Associate Head Coach/Running Backs

A high school coaching legend in Texas who comes to Fayetteville after recent stints at SMU (2017) as associate head coach/running backs and Texas (2015-16) as an assistant coach.

“Jeff was a phenomenal high school football coach who had a great career in the state of Texas. He has great knowledge of the game, and his development of his players has been special. He’s a phenomenal recruiter and great at creating relationships. His ability to recruit the state of Texas and Arkansas is exciting to us. I’m looking forward to seeing his players develop," Morris said.

Dustin Fry – Offensive Line/Run-Game Coordinator

A former NFL center who played at Clemson and coached the offensive line at SMU the past three seasons.

“Dustin is a guy who had a very successful playing career and was instrumental in our success at Clemson. He brings a lot to the table with his offensive line knowledge and his ability to teach the techniques and intricate details of what it takes to be a great offensive lineman. The success our offense has had over the last three years was a reflection of our offensive line," Morris said.

Barry Lunney Jr. – Tight Ends

Played quarterback for the Razorbacks from 1992-95 and has served as tight ends coach at Arkansas since 2013.

“Barry has had a great career here and has a valuable reputation around the state of Arkansas. I’m excited to have his knowledge of the game, his recruiting ability, and his familiarity with our program," Morris said.

Justin Stepp – Wide Receivers

Mentored projected first-round 2018 NFL Draft pick Courtland Sutton as wide receivers coach at SMU from 2015-17 and was selected last December to participate in the 2018 AFCA 35 Under 35 Coaches Leadership Institute.

“Justin is a very engaging person and I’m excited to have him and what he brings to our receiving group. He has a great knack for recruiting and development at the wide receiver position, having developed Courtland Sutton and Trey Quinn into All-Americans at SMU," Morris said.
