    When I saw the thread title, I immediately thought OSU wrestling coach.

    I'm surprised he'd do that to is alma mater. I guess he still wants to show he can coach in the big time.

    Re: John L. Smith to Arkansas

    Isn't there a Lousiville connection with him and Petrino?

    Maybe. Smith was an assistant at Arkansas last year so that is the most recent connection.

    Re: John L. Smith to Arkansas

    Wait I thought Arkansas had already named Rhoads as the replacement? I saw it on HN so it had to be true

    Re: John L. Smith to Arkansas

    Wow, look like the AD hasn't learned yet:

    From his wikipedia:

    After the 2002 season, Smith was hired as the head coach at Michigan State , which created controversy because Smith was hired before Louisville's bowl game that season, and he did not inform his Louisville players of the decision until halftime of the bowl game, which they lost to Marshall.

    Re: John L. Smith to Arkansas

    And only for 1 year. Looks like they resigned to not being able to attract good coach this season and use him as a stop-gap.
