Former NFL All-Pro running back DeMarco Murray will be named running backs coach at the University of Arizona in "the coming days," according to the Arizona Daily Star.
Murray will join the staff of Wildcats coach Kevin Sumlin, who served as a recruiter and coach at Oklahoma when Murray began his collegiate career in 2006. Sumlin had served as an assistant on the Sooners staff between 2003-07.
Murray will replace Clarence McKinney, who left his post in Tucson to become the head coach at Texas Southern last month.
Murray makes his way back to the sidelines after joining FOX Sports as a college football analyst in August. In July, Murray officially retired from the NFL after seven seasons.
