Robb Smith officially announced as Arkansas defensive coordinator



Coached a damn good Rutgers defense and has NFL experience.

2B's hires yet another solid assistant coach

FAYETTEVILLE - Robb Smith, who was instrumental in Rutgers achieving a stunning college football turnaround that included winning a share of the 2012 Big East championship behind a top-10 nationally ranked defense, has been named Arkansas' defensive coordinator and secondary coach, head coach Bret Bielema announced Saturday.

"I've been able to watch Robb Smith grow in the profession, and I know he'll bring in an attacking defensive philosophy that is built specifically to stop offenses in the SEC," Coach Bielema said. "Robb has been promoted time and time again at every place he's been. With his background, he captivates a room no matter where he is and players gravitate towards him. He's demonstrated an understanding of what it takes to build a team into a championship program."

Smith spent the 2013 season as linebackers coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after 14 years of collegiate coaching experience, which included four seasons at Rutgers University where he was defensive coordinator and secondary coach in 2012. That season, Rutgers ranked fourth in the nation in points allowed per game (14.2), sixth in rush yards allowed per game (95.2), 10th in total defense (311.6 yards per game) and tied for third in rushing touchdowns allowed (6).

I'd rather have 0 NFL experience than 1 year in the biggest dumpster fire franchise in recent memory.

What big name would want to be part of this crap hole. We will be hiring another full staff in 2-3 years so why would a big name come. Que the piggyville idiots telling you how we don't need top players or coaches, we coach them up.
