Michael Scherer was promoted to linebackers coach after the 2020 season by Head Coach Sam Pittman.
Scherer joined Pittman’s initial staff as a defensive quality control analyst. The Missouri graduate was vital in the turnaround of the Arkansas defense in 2020, stepping into an on-field coaching role during the Florida week when Associate Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator Barry Odom served as head coach during Pittman’s absence due to COVID-19. A former Missouri linebacker under Odom, Scherer made 266 tackles during his playing career from 2012-16. Scherer inherits an experienced group led by All-American Grant Morgan and All-SEC member Bumper Pool.
