Arkansas assistant head coach Taver Johnson has done his best to put his blinders on for nearly two weeks now.
With Bobby Petrino not on the field and his conduct under review by his boss, Arkansas is doing its best to concentrate on spring practice.
Arkansas put football coach Bobby Petrino on paid leave Thursday after he failed to disclose he had been riding with a female employee half his age when his motorcycle skidded off the road over the weekend.
Moments after their motorcycle accident, Bobby Petrino and a female employee told a passer-by not to call 911, then got a ride back to Fayetteville where the Arkansas football coach was met by a state trooper who provides his personal security during the season.
Ohio State assistant football coach Taver Johnson has been hired to coach the linebackers at Arkansas.
"No, no, not at all," Johnson said. "Not one bit. Things happen for a reason. My family and I, this coaching staff, these players, we're all here for a reason."
he said last week that he would consider hiring both a proven, permanent head coach now as well as promoting a current member of the staff on an interim basis before opening the search back up after next season.
