FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- A week after Bobby Petrino's firing, Arkansas football is in a state of flux as athletic director Jeff Long searches for a new head coach.
The Razorbacks wrap up spring practice with their Red-White scrimmage Saturday. In the meantime, assistant coaches are doing their best to hold the program together, and they're doing so while awaiting their own fate.
Long hasn't offered an update on the coaching search since firing Petrino on April 10, but he said last week that he would consider hiring both a proven, permanent head coach now as well as promoting a current member of the staff on an interim basis.
Arkansas assistant head coach Taver Johnson has been placed in charge of the program in the meantime.
