Jemal Singleton Leaving Arkansas for NFL's Colts

Arkansas will be searching for a new running backs coach for the second straight offseason.

Arkansas running backs coach Jemal Singleton has accepted the same position with the NFL's Indianapolis Colts.

Singleton spent one season with the Razorbacks. He was previously running backs coach at Oklahoma State.

"Congrats to Jemal and his family!!" Arkansas receivers coach Michael Smith posted on Twitter. "Keep chasing your dreams bro!! Good luck!"

With his departure, Arkansas is looking for its third coach at the position in as many seasons. Singleton replaced Joel Thomas last February after Thomas was hired by the NFL's New Orleans Saints.

According to his contract, Singleton will owe the Razorbacks $100,000 to terminate his contract.

Singleton was signed to a one-year contract last year worth $310,000 annually.

He is the second assistant coach to leave Arkansas since the end of the regular season. Former offensive line coach Sam Pittman accepted the same position at Georgia in December.

The Razorbacks hired Kurt Anderson to replace Pittman. Anderson was an assistant offensive line coach for the NFL's Buffalo Bills.
