Former Arkansas coach John L. Smith lands at Fort Lewis College

Former Arkansas and Idaho head coach John L. Smith has a new job with Division II Fort Lewis College, reports the Durango Herald.

Fort Lewis College is located in Durango, Colo. and Smith will start work March 1 as their new head coach. Smith replaces Cesar Rivas-Sandoval, who was 6-25 in his three years at the school.

Smith was hired at Arkansas after the school fired Bobby Petrino. The Razorbacks went 4-8 in 2012 after starting the preseason ranked in the top 10. The school had originally given Smith a 10-month contract and Smith's fate was likely sealed when Arkansas lost to Louisiana-Monroe in September.  Smith's overall record is 136-93 in 19 seasons as a head coach.

“We are extremely fortunate to have a coach with the tremendous background and experience that John L. brings to Fort Lewis College,” said Fort Lewis athletic director Gary Hunter said. “Fort Lewis College is making a commitment to football. Many of our other programs have reached the pinnacle of success at the national and regional levels. We want our football alumni and fans to have the opportunity to enjoy that same success."
