According to multiple reports, Arkansas offensive coordinator Jim Chaney is leaving the Razorbacks to join Pat Narduzzi’s staff at Pitt in the same role.

Chaney joined Arkansas prior to the 2013 season, under then first year head coach Bret Bielema, and led the Razorbacks to 31.9 points per game in 2014.

Six Arkansas assistants had signed contract extensions last week and a deal with Chaney was said to be nearing completion.

Narduzzi enters his first season at Pittsburgh after previous coach Paul Chryst left to take the head coaching position at Wisconsin.

Sports Illustrated’s Thayer Evans was the first to report the move.
