John L. Smith heading to Arkansas

I'm not really sure how to feel about all of this.

WHAS11 News has learned former University of Louisville head coach John L. Smith is joining his old protégé, Bobby Petrino, at Arkansas. Smith will be named a defensive assistant coach with the Razorbacks. A formal announcement is expected Friday during Petrino's 2:30 est press conference. It's unknown which role Smith will have with the Razorbacks.

Right now the Razorbacks are without a secondary coach after Lorenzo Wade departed to become defensive coordinator at South Carolina. Smith and Petrino, who was UofL head coach for four seasons, have a history with each other. Petrino was the Cards offensive coordinator in Smith’s first year at UofL.

So former Louisville football head coach John L. Smith takes a job at Arkansas under former Louisville football head coach Bobby Petrino, and he might be replacing former Louisville basketball player Lorrenzo Wade?

This shit keeps getting crazier and crazier.
