Former Arkansas defensive line coach Steve Caldwell may be coming back to Fayetteville, according to media reports.

Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis is expected to be named as Arkansas’ new defensive coordinator under new coach Chad Morris.

Caldwell was defensive ends coach at Arkansas from 2010-12 under Bobby Petrino and added special teams coordinator to those duties in his final season.

Caldwell joined the staff of Bryan Harsin at his alma mater, Arkansas State, in 2013. In 2014 he left with Harsin to go to Boise State. He has been assistant head coach and in charge of the defensive line there the past four seasons.

It has been rumored that John Scott, Jr., who coached the defensive line in 2017 at Arkansas under Bret Bielema, could join Morris’ staff as well. If so, he would likely coach defensive tackles.

Chavis is expected to coach the linebackers. At A&M, Terry Price coached the defensive ends and David Turner had the defensive tackles and was run game coordinator.
