Petrino, formerly the offensive coordinator at Illinois, was
hired by the Razorbacks on Tuesday to replace Garrick McGee, who
was hired as the head coach at Alabama-Birmingham. McGee made
$425,000 as Arkansas’ offensive coordinator.
The school released the salary figures Friday.
Petrino previously served as the Razorbacks’ offensive
coordinator during the 2008-09 seasons under Bobby Petrino, his

broke school records for points per game (32.5) in 2010.

the resignation of defensive coordinator Willy Robinson and
departure of special teams coordinator John L. Smith to become the
head coach at Weber State.
