Arkansas Athletic Director Jeff Long pitched the idea of a nine-month coaching search as a positive for the program in April. He saw bringing in an interim for 2012 as a way to get a head start on a full-time replacement.
“It’s really a luxury,” Long said at the time. “It will give me a chance to evaluate people and really look at what I think we need going forward to continue to build on the success we’ve had here.”
How important will the head start be for the Razorbacks? That probably depends, in part, on what other schools wind up with openings.
Below we look at programs in power leagues that could be headed for an opening. We’ve included where each coach currently ranks on Coacheshotseat.com and last year’s salary per USA Today’s database. We’ll periodically update the list of possibly competition.
