Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long announced that football coach John L. Smith would be removed as coach after the Razorbacks finished 4-8.

Smith signed a 10-month contract to be interim head coach after Bobby Petrino was fired for an off-the-field scandal in April. Smith will be reassigned in the athletics department through the end of his contract in February.
