Web Extra: New AD has Unique Ties to Arkansas

Connection started with Stacy Lewis who had heard great things about him

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- When word first came out that Houston's Hunter Yurachek was headed to Fayetteville, it appeared the University of Arkansas was hiring an athletics director with no ties to the program.

While that may be largely true, he does have a few friends who know how to call the hogs.

As athletics director at the University of Houston, Yurachek was the boss of women's golf coach Gerrod Chadwell.

In Arkansas, Chadwell might be best known as the husband of golfer Stacy Lewis.

And who was on the AD search committee? Yup, Stacy Lewis.

According to the Pig Trail Nation's Mike Irwin, there's some legitimacy to this theory.
