Musical SEC chairs: Coaches often reappear at different spots in conference

FAYETTEVILLE — When it comes to coaching in the SEC, it’s often a case of old faces in new places.

Whether it’s SEC schools hiring and firing head coaches or adding coordinators or position coaches, the names often are the same.

Coaches just move from school to school within the SEC.

All four of the new SEC head coaches had previous coaching experience in the conference. And of the four coaches they replaced, three stayed in the SEC.

Over the past nine years, Sam Pittman has gone from being the offensive line coach at Tennessee, the University of Arkansas and Georgia to being hired as the Razorbacks’ new head coach this season.
