Herring will coach Razorbacks in Cotton Bowl
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Despite the hiring of Bobby Petrino to coach the Razorbacks, interim head coach Reggie Herring will lead Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl.
The university announced today that Herring would remain in place, and Herring says he's been assured of his status by athletic director Jeff Long.
Herring says his players have stayed focused through the coaching tumult.
The Razorbacks worked out for an hour and 15 minutes today at the indoor practice field.
The team practices again on Friday.
