Paul Haynes leaves OSU to become Arkansas’ defensive coordinator/DB coach

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.University of Arkansas football head coach Bobby Petrino has announced Paul Haynes as defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach for the Razorbacks.

Haynes most recently spent the last seven seasons at Ohio State where he was the co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach in 2011 after working with the defensive backs from 2005-10. While Haynes was in Columbus, the Buckeyes compiled a 66-11 record, won six Big Ten titles and played in six straight BCS games while consistently putting one of the best defenses in the Big Ten on the field. The OSU defensive backs earned five first-team All-America citations and 10 first-team All-Big Ten selections under Haynes’ direction. Eight defensive backs were selected in the 2006-11 NFL Drafts, including first rounders Donte Whitner and Malcolm Jenkins. Whitner, a safety, was taken with the eighth overall pick by the Buffalo Bills in 2006, and Jenkins, a cornerback, was picked 14th overall by the New Orleans Saints in 2009.

Haynes has coached at Michigan State, Louisville, Kent State, Northern Iowa, Ferris State and Bowling Green in addition to one year as defensive quality control with the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he worked with then offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino. Haynes also worked with former Razorback coaches John L. Smith (Louisville and Michigan State) and Garrick McGee (Northern Iowa).

“Through his experiences, Paul Haynes is extremely familiar with the way we operate,” said Coach Petrino. “He has a professional approach and is an exceptional coach and recruiter. This is a competitive conference and we are determined to go head-to-head with the very best. Having Paul join our program will help us as we continue on the path toward our goal of consistently winning championships. He has been a part of a team with a culture of doing just that. Paul has incredibly high standards and the defenses he has built have been challenging to prepare for and have always played with toughness, intensity and desire.”

Before the 2011 season, Haynes was promoted to co-defensive coordinator and the Buckeyes ranked fourth in the Big Ten in turnover margin and fifth in the conference in pass defense and sacks. Ohio State also ranked in the top 30 in the NCAA in total defense and scoring defense, and John Simon was tied for third in the Big Ten with an average of 0.58 sacks per game.

In 2010, Ohio State became the first team in Big Ten history to win at least 10 games in six straight seasons, finishing with a 12-1 record and a victory in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. The Buckeye defense led the Big Ten and ranked second in the NCAA in total defense by allowing 250.6 yards per game and topped the conference and ranked third in the country with an average of 13.3 points per game allowed. They also led the Big Ten while tying for third in the country in turnover margin, and ranked fourth in the nation in rushing defense, pass efficiency defense and pass defense.

In 2009, the Buckeyes were 11-2 and defeated Oregon in the Rose Bowl. Ohio State allowed just 262.5 yards per game, first in the Big Ten and fifth in the NCAA, and 12.2 points per game, second in the conference and fifth in the country while also ranking number one in the Big Ten and fifth in the NCAA by allowing 83.4 rushing yards per game. Ohio State also was second in the Big Ten and seventh in the nation in pass efficiency defense and second in the conference and 17th in the nation in pass defense.

Malcolm Jenkins brought the Thorpe Award to Columbus as the nation’s best defensive back in 2008. He recorded 57 tackles, three interceptions and three forced fumbles while leading the Buckeye secondary that held opponents to 164.3 passing yards per game, first in the Big Ten and eighth in the NCAA. Ohio State ranked in the top 20 in the country and top three in the conference in rushing defense, scoring defense, total defense and pass efficiency defense.

Ohio State played in the BCS National Championship Game in 2006 and 2007. In 2007, the Buckeyes led the country in total defense, allowing 233.0 yards per game, in scoring defense, giving up just 12.7 points per game, and in pass defense, as opponents passed for 150.2 yards per game. Ohio State also led the Big Ten in rushing defense, allowing 82.9 yards per game to rank third in the country, and in pass efficiency defense with a mark of 98.73, which was fourth in the nation.

The 2006 squad allowed just 12.8 points per game and 280.5 yards of total offense while running undefeated through all 12 games in the regular season. Ohio State, which was ranked No. 1 in the country throughout the season, twice defeated the No. 2 team in the country by taking down Texas in Austin and Michigan in Columbus.

In Haynes’ first season at Ohio State, the Buckeyes finished the year with seven straight wins, including a victory over Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl, to finish 10-2. OSU’s opponents scored 15.2 points per game and gained 281.3 yards of total offense, including just 73.4 rushing yards per game. The Buckeyes grabbed six interceptions and recovered six fumbles as Whitner garnered first-team All-America honors.

Haynes spent the 2002 season at Louisville, where he coached the cornerbacks under former Arkansas special teams coordinator and outside linebackers coach John L. Smith. In 2002, the Cardinals ranked fifth in C-USA and No. 35 nationally in pass efficiency defense (112.9 rating).

Haynes followed Smith to Michigan State for the 2003 and 2004 seasons. In those two years, the Spartans were 13-12 overall and 9-7 in the Big Ten and advanced to the Alamo Bowl against Nebraska in 2003. In each year, safety Jason Harmon was an honorable-mention All-Big Ten selection, and three other members of the secondary earned Academic All-Big Ten acclaim in those two seasons.

In 2003, the Spartans intercepted 15 passes and returned two for touchdowns. During the 2004 season, MSU picked off 17 passes, returning one for a touchdown, while collecting 241 yards on interception returns.

In 2001, Haynes was with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, where he served as the defensive quality-control coach. His duties included assisting the defensive coaching staff in all aspects of game preparation — compiling scouting reports, breaking down opponent film and writing the playbook. He also helped coach the secondary. The Jaguars ranked among the AFC leaders in passing defense (second at 190 yards per game), scoring defense (fourth at 17.9 points) and total defense (seventh at 316.9 yards).

He worked for two years at Kent State, where he coached the secondary in 1999 before taking over the duties as assistant head coach and safeties coach in 2000. Prior to joining the Kent State staff, Haynes coached the running backs and secondary at NCAA I-AA Northern Iowa in 1997-98.

Haynes served as secondary coach at Ferris State for two seasons, from 1995-96. Haynes began his coaching career at St. Francis DeSales High School in Columbus, Ohio, in 1993, before moving on to Bowling Green as a graduate assistant in 1994.

Haynes walked on at Kent State University in the fall of 1987 and went on to play four years of football for the Golden Flashes. As a freshman, he led the team in interceptions. As a sopho­more, he led the team with 116 tackles. After missing the 1989 campaign with a knee injury, he started his final two years and wound up his career as the seventh leading tackler in Kent State history with 440 stops.

Haynes and his wife, Denita, who graduated from Florida A&M with an education degree, have three children – daughters Jordyn and Kennedy Rose, and one son, Tarron.

Arkansas sophomore pitcher DJ Baxendale has been selected to the 22-man roster for the 2011 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team.

Baxendale was thrilled with the honor. “It’s a real honor to be selected for the team and to be able to represent the University of Arkansas on Team USA,” he said. “I’m looking forward to playing some tough competition this summer and representing my country on the baseball field.”

Baxendale is the eighth Arkansas player to be selected for the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team and the first since Andy Wilkins was picked for the team in 2009. Baxendale joins Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn on this year’s team as an assistant coach.

A Jacksonville, Florida native, Baxendale is one of the most versatile pitchers in college baseball, seeing time in both the Razorbacks’ starting rotation and in the bullpen. Baxendale currently ranks third in the SEC with a 1.58 ERA and has a 7-1 record with two saves in 14 appearances, including eight starts. In 57 innings pitched this season, Baxendale has given up 14 runs, only 10 earned, and struck out 53 batters, while issuing 11 walks. Opponents are batting just .226 against the sophomore right hander.

The 2011 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team will get together on June 22. The team will play 11 games during the summer, culminating with a five-game series against Japan July 3-8. The series opens on July 3 at 3:05 p.m. at Durham Bulls Athletic Park in Durham, North Carolina. Additional players will be selected to the team in the absence of players on the 22-roster who are competing in Omaha at the NCAA College World Series.

Former University of Arkansas All-American Stacy Lewis won her first professional event at the 40th Annual Kraft Nabisco Championship at the Dinah Shore Championship Course in Rancho Mirage, California this past weekend.

Lewis, a four-time All-Southeastern Conference and All-American for the Razorbacks, began the final day of the tournament in second place after moving back and forth between the lead and the top spots for the first three rounds.

The Woodlands, Texas, native opened play with a six-under 66 in a round with six birdies. She carded a 69 on the second round and had a 71 on her third third scorecard. Lewis finished with a 69 for 275. The win earned Lewis $300,000.

Lewis battled with Yani Tseng in the final round and the players exchanged the lead until Lewis birdied the 389-yard par four 12th hole with a 12-foot putt. With that birdie, Lewis took a two-shot lead over the defending champion and current #1 player in the world in Tseng.

Lewis tied for fifth as an amateur in 2007 and becomes the fourth player to win her first golf event at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Mike Anderson is returning home to Arkansas to become the new men’s basketball coach.

Anderson leaves the Missouri Tigers program that he revived five years ago to return to the school where he was an assistant to Nolan Richardson for 17 seasons. He takes the place of John Pelphrey, who was fired 11 days ago on March 13.

Anderson, who also revived the basketball program at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, was 111-57 at Missouri, including an appearance in the Elite Eight in 2009. The Tigers were 23-11 this year, losing to Cincinnati in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Anderson assured Missouri fans that he was going to stay put just six days earlier when rumors surfaced that he was the favorite to take the Razorbacks job.

Since the popular Nolan Richardson left in 2002, Stan Heath and John Pelphrey have not made Arkansas fans have with their double-digit losses in the Southeastern Conference.
