NWA Media/ MICHAEL WOODS --John L. Smith reacts to a call in the fourth quarter of Arkansas' Nov. 3 game against Tulsa at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville.

— Former Arkansas football coach John L. Smith has been named head coach of NCAA Division II Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colo.

Smith, 64, will take over on March 1. He is currently under contract at Arkansas in an advisory role through Feb. 23.

The former head coach at Louisville and Michigan State served as the Razorbacks' head coach for the 2012 season, finishing 4-8. He replaced Bobby Petrino, who was fired last April for misconduct.

Smith, who had previously served three seasons as special teams coach for Arkansas, had been hired as head coach at his alma mater Weber State in December 2011. In 19 seasons, he has a career record of 136-93.

Fort Lewis finished the 2012 season 0-10.

Is this a step up or down for him? Too bad Long did not go with him. Good luck to JLS.
