Defensive coordinator and secondary coach Paul Haynes commented that he was excited about getting out to the practice field for the first time as a coach for the Razorbacks.
"It was fun for me just getting ready and getting started," Coach Haynes said. "As a new coach, you just try to get a feel for what the pace of practice is, and I liked what I saw."
Coach Haynes also mentioned that he was glad the Razorback players could get back on the practice field after a tough stretch in the classroom.
"Some guys had finals all week," Coach Haynes said. "It was good to get them back out there running around, getting involved in football."
