Cody Kennedy joins the Razorbacks after a brief time at Southern Miss during the 2020 offseason.
He joined the Golden Eagles with new head coach Will Hall as the team’s run game coordinator and offensive line coach. Kennedy had spent the last two seasons at Tulane as the Green Wave’s offensive line coach, where he helped revive Tulane’s offense. The Wave’s running game ranked in the Top 20 nationally each of the last two seasons, including last year running for 217.1 yards per game to lead the American Athletic Conference. This past season two of his offensive linemen earned All-American Athletic Conference honors with Corey Dublin picking up second team honors and Joey Claybrook being named honorable mention. Kennedy’s offensive line paved the way for a school record 3,162 yards in 2019. Tulane scored 65 rushing touchdowns in Kennedy’s two seasons in New Orleans.
Kennedy spent the 2018 season working with Pittman at Georgia as a Bulldogs’ graduate assistant, helping UGA run for 238.8 yards per game and a Top 10 ranking in the final AP poll. Kennedy coached the offensive line at West Georgia in 2016 and 2017. Two of his linemen (Harley Vaughan and Austin Kastl) earned FCS All-America honors in 2017 as the Wolves went 9-4. He graduated from Southeastern Louisiana in 2012 and earned a master’s degree from West Alabama in 2014.
