Two former Michigan players are on the move in college coaching.

Scot Loeffler

Former quarterback and quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler reportedly is the new offensive coordinator at Boston College. He most recently was in that role at Virginia Tech.

Kurt Anderson, a former UM offensive lineman and EMU assistant, is leaving the Buffalo Bills as assistant offensive line coach to coach the offensive line at Arkansas.

“I couldn’t be more excited for my family and I to join the Arkansas family,” Anderson said in a release. “It’s an unbelievable opportunity to be part of such a storied program with great tradition, in the SEC and in a community that is perfect for my family. I believe strongly in what coach (Bret) Bielema is building and the way he’s building it and can’t wait to get to work. I know my approach and philosophies will blend well with his and it’ll be fun to see what can be accomplished.

“I’m so thankful to (Buffalo Bills) head coach Rex Ryan and the Bills organization for everything they have done for me during my time in Western New York,” Anderson continued. “It was a difficult decision to leave a community that has been so good to me and my family and that is so passionate about the Bills. During my visit to Arkansas, I got the same passionate feeling about the Razorbacks and I can’t wait for my family to be part of it. I know my family is excited because ‘Hog Calls’ have already started in our house.”

Loeffler, 41, spent the last five seasons at Virginia Tech. He coached under BC coach Steve Addazio while at Temple in 2011.
