John L. Smith To Be Named Interim Head Coach At Arkansas

Posted: Updated:
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -
A person familiar with the decision says Arkansas is bringing back John L. Smith on an interim basis next year to replace Bobby Petrino.

Smith, who left the Razorbacks after last season to become the coach at Weber State, is returning on a one-year appointment, according to the person who spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because the school had not made its decision public.

Smith is also a former head coach at Michigan State and Louisville.

Petrino was fired April 10 after his affair with a woman he hired as his assistant was revealed by an April 1 motorcycle crash.
