Randy Shannon is out as TCU's linebackers coach, according to FootballScoop.com. Shannon appears to be leaving on his own terms and could be headed to Arkansas to fill the same position, sources told the site.

Prior to arriving to TCU before the 2012 season, Shannon served as the head coach at Miami from 2007 to 2010, guiding the Hurricanes to a 28-22 record during his stint in South Beach. Before that, Shannon spent six years as Miami's defensive coordinator. The Hurricanes were perennially dominant on defense during that time, finishing in the top 10 nationally in total defense in five out of six seasons. Shannon received the Broyles Award, which is given annually to the best assistant in college football, after the 2001 season.

Shannon began his coaching career with Miami as a graduate assistant and held positions of defensive line coach, linebackers coach and defensive assistant with the Hurricanes and Miami Dolphins during his first decade as a coach.

In addition to being brought up in rumblings about the Arkansas job, Shannon's name has also been mentioned as a candidate to fill South Florida's vacant defensive coordinator job.
