AP Source: Arkansas' Chaney leaving for Pittsburgh

Posted: Updated:
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A person familiar with the decision has told The Associated Press that Arkansas offensive coordinator Jim Chaney has left the school to accept the same position at Pittsburgh.
   
The person spoke Sunday night on the condition of anonymity because Chaney's departure hasn't been announced.
   
The move was first reported by Sports Illustrated.
   
Longtime Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi was hired as Pittsburgh's head coach last month after Paul Chryst left to take the Wisconsin job.
   
Chaney, who turns 53 on Monday, also coached Arkansas' quarterbacks the last two seasons under head coach Bret Bielema. Arkansas reached a bowl game for the first time in three seasons last year, finishing 7-6 after a Texas Bowl win over Texas.
   
Chaney is a former Purdue and Tennessee offensive coordinator and also was an assistant in the NFL with the St. Louis Rams.
   
Arkansas signed defensive coordinator Robb Smith to a three-year contract last week, at which time it said a new deal for Chaney was being finalized.
