Jason Shumaker is in his first season as Director of High School Relations for the Razorbacks and brings seven years of collegiate coaching experience to the staff.

Shumaker came to Fayetteville after spending the last two seasons at Midland University. He was the associate head coach/offensive coordinator in 2011 and the run game coordinator/head junior varsity coach in 2010. The Warriors' offense averaged more than 30 points per game and finished in the top 30 nationally in nearly every offensive category in 2011.

Shumaker was hired as the head coach of Dana College in December of 2009 and served in that role until the school closed in June of 2010.

Prior to Dana, he was at the University of Saint Mary in Leavenworth, Kan., for three seasons as the offensive coordinator/recruiting coordinator and offensive line and tight ends coach. The offense he developed while at St. Mary finished as the fifth-ranked passing offense in the nation in 2008 and broke numerous school records. The offense he directed finished in the top 30 in the nation in several different categories over two seasons and had four games with 500 yards of offense. He coached 21 players over three seasons that were All-KCAC selections. Due to this success, he was named the 2008 KCAC Assistant Coach of the Year.

Shumaker went to USM from Eastern New Mexico, where he served as fullbacks coach and defensive line coach over two seasons and coached three All-Lone Star Conference players. Prior to his time at ENMU, he was a teacher and a coach in Rowlett, Texas.

Shumaker was born in Salina, Kan., and went to high school in Grand Prairie, Texas. From there, he attended the University of Kansas, where he played fullback for the Jayhawks. He was also a five-time Jayhawk Scholar and was named to the Big XII Commissioner's Honor Roll five times.

Shumaker graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Science in education in 2003 and received his Master's Degree in sports administration from Eastern New Mexico University in 2007. He is married to the former Kate Klepper and the two have one son, Davis.
