Former MSU football coach John L. Smith is back in college coaching. The 60-year old Smith has been named special teams coordinator at Arkansas where Bobby Petrino is about to begin his second season as head coach. John L. was considered a candidate for recent head coaching jobs at Utah State and Wyoming but was eventually passed over at both schools. He has been away from coaching since leaving MSU at the end of the 2006 season. His defensive coordinator at MSU, Chris Smeland, was recently re-hired as the co defensive coordinator at Army.
