Back For More

NWA Daily

The Razorbacks just signed a major deal with head coach Dave Van Horn that should keep him around for another ten years.

  • A regular powerhouse: Coach Van Horn has been at the U of A for 19 seasons, helping the Razorbacks win over 750 of their games and consistently rank in the national top 25. With his track record, fans can rest easy knowing Arkansas will remain in good hands.
  • On the money: Numbers were good on and off the field. After turning a profit last season, Razorbacks baseball happily offered Coach Van Horn an annual $1.25mm contract to keep up the winning work.
