The Arkansas Razorbacks have now gone almost a week without a full-time head coach. Acting boss man Taver Johnson continues to man spring football minus Bobby Petrino, but describes the current status of his staff as like being in limbo.
If the Hogs do end up going the interim route for 2012, it's interesting to note several members of the staff are getting to take turns being the most talked about candidate for a spell. It's been running backs coach Tim Horton and Johnson himself, and right now it's offensive coordinator Paul Petrino (yes, relation).
Quarterback Tyler Wilson says he'll respect whatever decision athletic director Jeff Long makes, but does want to point out his strong relationship with Petrino. Wilson and others have noted the need for continuity, with spring football almost over. A whole new coaching staff would have virtually no chance to install its own system in time for the season, making an interim hire much more manageable.
