Chris Ash, Wisconsin’s defensive coordinator in 2011 and 2012 and Wisconsin’s defensive backfield coach in 2010, becomes Arkansas’ defensive coordinator, new Arkansas Coach Bielema announced Tuesday.
Bielema, the Wisconsin Badgers’ head coach from 2006-2012 and their defensive coordinator in 2004 and 2005, was hired last week to succeed John L. Smith, the interim coach in 2012 after former Arkansas Coach Bobby Petrino was fired last spring.
