Michael Scherer -  - Arkansas Razorbacks

Michael Scherer

Michael Scherer enters his first season as Arkansas’ linebackers coach in 2021 after his promotion from defensive analyst by head coach Sam Pittman.

Scherer came with associate head coach/defensive coordinator Barry Odom from Missouri to Arkansas in 2020. He was vital in the turnaround of the Razorback defense, stepping into an on-field coaching role during the Florida week when Odom served as head coach during Pittman’s absence due to COVID-19.

A former linebacker at Missouri, Scherer reunited with Odom, his college coach, in 2019 when he was hired as a graduate assistant.

Scherer played linebacker at Mizzou from 2012-16, totaling 266 tackles, 17.0 tackles for loss, 1.0 sack and one interception, seeing action in 38 games over his four-year career. A knee injury suffered against Middle Tennessee limited him to seven games as a senior after posting back-to-back seasons of 90+ tackles to rank second on the team each season.

Scherer graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business from Missouri in 2016.
