Arkansas Coaching Search: New Coach Won't Be Interim, According To Report

The Arkansas Razorbacks have a previously scheduled team meeting set for Monday afternoon, though it's one at which they could announce their head coach for the remainder of 2012. All expectations entering Monday had the Hogs revealing they've chosen which member of their staff will serve as the interim, but Arkansas sports talk host Bo Mattingly reports otherwise:

(And, no, it's not Bud Foster, despite the Hokies scheduling a likely coincidental surprise press conference.)

Offensive coordinator Paul Petrino, defensive coordinator Paul Haynes, running backs coach Tim Horton and current acting head coach Taver Johnson have been the four most frequently mentioned as possible interims. If the interim route isn't the answer, there's no telling who the new hire could be, as rumors have flown in every direction since Bobby Petrino was fired.

In possibly related news, a Razorbacks football banquet has been delayed.
