Brey Cook is in his second season as a graduate assistant for offense at his alma mater. He lettered for the Razorbacks from 2011-14.
Cook assisted with an offensive line in 2016, including Pro Football Focus All-America first team choice Frank Ragnow, that helped pave the way for running back Rawleigh Williams III to capture the SEC regular-season rushing title with 1,326 yards and provided time for quarterback Austin Allen to throw for an SEC-best 3,430 yards. The Razorbacks manufactured 428.4 yards of total offense per game, highlighted by five games with both 200 yards rushing and passing.
Cook started 30 of 48 career games played on the offensive line, including his final 25. As a senior, he participated in more than 850 snaps, tallied more than 40 knockdowns and blocked for running backs Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams, who were the only FBS teammates to each rush for 1,000-plus yards in the 2014 season. The Razorback offensive line also led the SEC in fewest sacks allowed with 14.
During his junior campaign, Cook played a pivotal role on an offensive line that helped Collins become the 10th true freshman in SEC history to rush for 1,000 yards. The offensive line also broke the single-season school record by only allowing 8.0 sacks. Arkansas led the SEC and tied for second in the NCAA with an average of 0.67 sacks allowed per game.
Cook, a native of Springdale, Arkansas, earned his bachelor’s degree in communication from Arkansas in 2014. He was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll for his work in the classroom in the fall of 2011 and 2013.
