The University of Arkansas hired Smith in April to replace Bobby Petrino, who was fired in April. Smith had been an assistant coach under Petrino for three seasons before leaving the UA in December to coach at Weber State in Ogden, Utah.

Smith earned $9,147 from Weber State in 2011 and $35,644 from the college this year.

Long has said Smith was up front about his financial problems during the hiring process.

Smith has a 10-month, $850,000 contract with the UA.

Smith received $215,922 from the UA in 2011 and has received $134,832 from the college so far this year, the filing shows.
