Randy Shannon was hired 5 months ago by TCU to coach linebackers. Now Shannon is making another move, this time to Fayetteville as Bielema’s linebackers coach.
“Randy Shannon is a great coach and a great person,” said Bielema in a statement. “He has been a part of multiple national championship teams and, more importantly, he changed the lives of numerous young men. He has spent nearly his entire coaching career at Miami, and his defenses consistently ranked inside the top 10 nationally. I think a lot of people know Randy got a lot of great things done at Miami and most recently with TCU.
“He is a disciplinarian who has high standards, and he is skillful at relating to his players. He is a coach players turn to for guidance, and his players have always been prepared and played with intensity and desire.”
Excited to have Randy Shannon join our football family. He is a great coach, great person, and will make our program better immediately. 1-0
