FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas coach Sam Pittman has brought Jamil Walker to join him here, taking another staff member from Georgia and this one has a connection to former coach Bret Bielema.

Walker, who is now the director of strength and conditioning for the Razorbacks, was with the Bulldogs the last three seasons when they won 36 games, including an appearance in the national championship game after the 2017 season.

Walker played at Wisconsin for Bielema, moving into the assistant strength coach role in 2009.

As a player, he was a part of one of the most successful periods in Badgers history. At the time of graduation, his class was the winningest in program history going 40-11 during his four years on the field. The Badgers won the Capital One Bowl in consecutive years in 2006-07.
