Taylor Reed is in his second season at Arkansas as a graduate assistant for offense, working primarily with quarterbacks.
In his first season with the Razorbacks, Reed helped tutor Austin Allen, the SEC’s top passer in 2016 who threw for 3,430 yards, including a league-best 2,291 in SEC play, and totaled 25 touchdown passes behind nine multi-touchdown games. Allen completed 61.1 percent of his passes, boasted a 146.04 passer rating with a 200-plus passer rating in three outings, and passed for 300 or more yards four times.
Reed joined the Razorbacks after lettering at Central Arkansas at quarterback from 2013-15. During his career with the Bears, he completed 189 of 277 passes for 1,798 yards and 14 touchdowns in 22 games.
Reed began his college career in 2011 at the University of Memphis, where he started 9 of 11 games, threw for 1,690 yards and 10 touchdowns. Following that season, he transferred to the University of Arkansas. Reed sat out the 2012 season due to NCAA transfer rules and went on to join Central Arkansas in August 2013.
A native of El Dorado, Arkansas, Reed graduated from Central Arkansas with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
