In the press conference, Smith says he's excited to be back and he looks forward to being a mentor to the players. He said leaving his alma mater Weber State University and coming back to Arkansas, Smith said it was one of the hardest decisions he's ever had to make.
Smith was asked if this is him throwing his hat into the ring for a permanent position. Smith said, "Only the season will dictate what happens after this."
Smith hopes the players are excited and looking forward to the season as much as he is, and the fact that 45,000 people came out to the Red/White spring football game shows that the fans are excited too.
