About this Article

Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long wasted little time in bringing the John L. Smith era to a close. Long said in a statement released by the university Saturday that Smith will not return next season as the Razorbacks' coach. Long met with the interim coach a day after the Razorbacks' season-ending 20-13 loss to LSU and told him the school "would be making a change in leadership within our program."
