This is a tremendous hire for Arkansas. Head coaching experience, great recruiter with lots of ties to the South and the Southwest. He gave Arkansas fits when he was at Ole Miss. I am happier every day that Altman left and Pelphrey came our way. Go Hogs!

Outstanding hire.  He is a good recruiter.  He has pulled a few out of the hat over the years just usually could never pull 5 out of the hat.  But if he can pull a couple of big time prospects a year to go along with his coaching experience he will be worth his weight in salary.
I'm guessing he got Ike Diagu to go to Ariz. St....also good head coaching experience + he won at Ole miss, that isnt easy to do

Ike went to Arizona.

Ike went to ASU
I met Evans when he was recruiting Keith Carter at Perryville. He's a class individual and recognizes talent. This a great hire. It's good to see Pelphrey is not intimidated by hiring a former coach who will bring a lot to the table. Congrats JP!!

  Joins Pelphrey's staff. Former head coach at Arizona State and Ole Miss.


FYI.
This is an amazingly good hire. His Ole Miss teams always beat and beat up on Nolan's teams with much less talent than we had. Amazing defense and very tough. We have never had a mean, badass team before. We were usual finesse and softer than our opponents except for a couple individual exceptions. Also his experience in the South and SEC will help as well as his race. Great hire...

In the words of Johnny Cash's song 'Boy Name Sue' the BB team will get tough or die, there won't be any back talk on the bench either. Best I've felt about the BB team in a long time. Welcome Coach Evans

One statement by Evans stood out to me.  He was happy to "mentor" JP.  I love it.  When an older coach is willing to teach a young up an comer.  Also, willing to be an assistant on his staff, realizing JP is the head guy, shows the maturity of JP AND RE to reach multiple goals.  Evans can totally solidify his legacy by helping to develop a killer Coach and be willing to be an assistant (ego) to do it.  I applaud him.  I am so looking forward to who is left on this team next year, cuz they will EARN it. ;D :razorback:

Good hire from what I can tell. It will be interesting to see how they mesh styles of play. Pel's full-court, frenetic style with Evans' more traditional half-court. What I like is that this whole staff seems to be a lot more intense. The energy level in BWA should be sky high if they can get the wins to come their way.

I always got tired of him taking Arkansas raised players, and beating the Hogs with them.  Maybe he will help build a fence around the state to keep the best ballers at the U of A.

Great hire.  I was surprised several years ago when Ole Miss didn't try harder to keep Evans there.  He did an outstanding job there & I am glad he is on the Razorback staff now.

 I wanted Anthony Grant at the beginning(still think he will be a top head coach someday) but Pelphrey has done great so far.  Go Hogs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy crap. This guy is our ASSISTANT coach? Wow, I hope Pelphrey can recruit players as well as he recruits coaches. Evan's Ole Miss teams were tough. Nice work, University of Arkansas Athletic Department. (ahhh, feels good saying that!)

great, we can in-state recruit now. ha ha

LOL. Just what I was thinking. I'm hoping Evans can bring us some Mississippi recruits---there's a lot of talent in that state.

It would by nice to beat MS with MS kids, instead of them beating us with Arkansas kids.  WPS!!
I hope your wish comes true. I felt he was a very good coach when he was there. He was able to bring in some talent and win in the SEC. He will be a great addition to our program.

A great hire. His Ole Miss teams always played hard and took us to the woodshed with lesser talent.  If he can instill that spirit on the defensive side here we should have some excellent teams.  Pelphrey is to be commended for this hire, apparently they were not the bosom buddy type of relationship but he recognized the ability of Evans.  Lets hope he can also add to the recruiting efforts as well, he seemed to be able to pluck out talent that others overlooked or certainly got the most out of it. 

I also read where the final pick is someone who is a fireball recruiter.  Sounds like we should have a great basketball staff.  Nutt, take notice of what Pelphrey is doing regarding staff picks

Coach Pelphrey continues to impress me. He has united the fans, put excitement back into our program, and hired a needed long-tine head coach who knows the SEC West. I'll admit, at first I was skepticle about Pelphrey's hiring but he is quickly becoming one of my favorite coaches on campus.

Congrats Coach P, and good luck Rob. Now hit the recruiting trail boys.

Great hire! He certainly knows how to recruit Arkansas players.  We always had trouble with Ole Miss when he was coaching.  He will give Beverly and the rest of the team a traditional father(grandfather) figure who demands hard work and respect.
