While at LSU, Chavis was the 2011 victor of the Broyles Award for the top assistant coach in college football.

"I'm excited for the opportunity to help Coach Morris build the Arkansas program and join the great staff that he is putting together", Chavis said. Coach Morris say's it's important to play great defense in the s-e-c and Coach Chavis brings a wealth of experience.

"He worked underneath us at Clemson and was very instrumental in our success there". He'll be coaching the running backs as well as taking on the associate head coaching duties. "The success our offense has had over the last three years was a reflection of the growth and development of our offensive line". "I'm looking forward to seeing his players develop". He has a great knack for recruiting and developing his players.

He coached tight ends for the entire 2013-2017 Bielema era, which included coaching 2015 Mackey Award victor Hunter Henry.
