Buffalo Bills assistant offensive line coach Kurt Anderson was announced as the new offensive line coach at the University of Arkansas on Saturday, joining the staff of head coach Bret Bielema.
You may remember Anderson as the Bills' full-time offensive line coach for the first six games of the 2015 regular season, when their actual offensive line coach, Aaron Kromer, was suspended for an off-the-field incident.
Anderson had joined the Bills as an assistant coach back in 2013, under then first-year head coach Doug Marrone, and was retained in 2015 by new head coach Rex Ryan. But those three seasons were Anderson's only stint in the NFL during an 11-year coaching career, as he spent eight seasons in the college ranks between Indiana State, Michigan, and Eastern Michigan, where he had the title of line coach and run game coordinator.
Now, Anderson returns to the college ranks with his first full-time offensive line coach gig after being part of a 2015 Bills outfit that saw great run-game production from its offensive line. Before turning his attention to Arkansas full-time, however, Anderson left Bills fans with some parting words on his excellent Twitter account.
I appreciate everything that the Buffalo Bills and the Western NY community has provided for me and my family. I will forever be #BillsMafia— Kurt Anderson (@OLINEPRIDE) January 10, 2016
Ps. You have the best Head Coach and the best owners in this League. You will be everywhere you want to be very shortly. @buffalobills— Kurt Anderson (@OLINEPRIDE) January 10, 2016
