Anderson was instrumental this past season in coaching Buffalo’s offensive line while offensive line coach Aaron Kromer serves a six-game team-imposed suspension. Head coach Rex Ryan praised Anderson’s efforts in Kromer’s absence. Buffalo’s offensive linemen also had a good deal of respect for the up and coming assistant coach.

“I’m really excited for Kurt,” said Eric Wood. “He is a great coach and will do a great job at Arkansas. I learned a lot from him during his time with the Bills and I know he will bring a lot to the table for Arkansas.”

Arkansas alum and TE Chris Gragg also expressed his excitement that his alma mater was getting Anderson as a new assistant.

“This is a great opportunity for Kurt,” said Gragg. “Arkansas will be a great fit for him. He is a great young coach with alot of energy and fire. I loved working with him at the Bills and know players at Arkansas will feel the same.”

Anderson also gave props to his Buffalo Bills family.
