Hogs Continue Interviewing Candidates

FAYETTEVILLE -- Arkansas wrapped up a second interview for its football assistant vacancy Monday and expects more interviews this week.

Alex Wood, who spent six seasons in the NFL, met with Hogs coach Houston Nutt on Monday. He was the second to interview after former Tennessee offensive coordinator Randy Sanders reportedly was in town two weekends ago.

Wood's last job was as the Arizona Cardinals' offensive coordinator in 2004. He also was receivers coach with the Cincinnati Bengals and quarterbacks coach with the Minnesota Vikings.

"Alex Wood had a really good interview," Nutt said. "So far, it's all going pretty well. We're just checking everybody out, one at a time."

Nutt would not comment on any other candidates, but sources indicate that Louisiana-Monroe offensive coordinator Todd Berry and Alabama-Birmingham offensive coordinator Pat Sullivan will interview later this week.

"We're still kind of right in the middle of it," Nutt said. "We're not going to get into any rush. We just want to take our time and do what's best for the program."

Arkansas is searching for either a quarterbacks coach or a receivers coach. Recently hired offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn will coach whichever position isn't filled by the hire.
