Hogs hire Da Prato from Buffaloes
The University of Arkansas has added Daniel Da Prato to be its off-field special teams coordinator.
The hiring was announced Saturday on social media. Da Prato, a native of Sacramento, Calif., had been working at the University of Colorado as director of quality control for offense for the last three years.
Da Prato, 36, played quarterback at Louisiana-Monroe, New Mexico Highlands and Chabot (Calif.) Junior College. Da Prato has also served as tight ends coach and special teams coordinator at Montana State, receivers coach at Sacramento State and as a graduate assistant and recruiting coordinator at Louisiana-Monroe.
Da Prato fills the position previously held by Tanner Burns, who left in December after five years with the Razorbacks to become special teams coordinator at Liberty University for Coach Hugh Freeze.
