Jim Chaney will leave his post as Arkansas offensive coordinator to take the same job under Pat Narduzzi at Pittsburgh, FootballScoop learned on Sunday evening.
Chaney worked at Arkansas for the past two seasons, helping the Hogs nearly double their rushing output (118.7 yards per game and 3.68 per carry in 2012, 218 per game and 5.09 per carry in 2014). The Razorbacks improved from 3-9 to 7-6 this fall while jumping from 106th to 45th nationally in scoring offense.
“Chaney’s” offense is a better fit at Pitt in my opinion. He wants to be multiple. More pro style. Run first; but not run all the time.

Chaney served as the offensive coordinator at Tennessee from 2009-12, first under Lane Kiffin and then with Derek Dooley.
