Robb Smith, Arkansas’ new DC, took the bow on Monday as he was introduced by head coach Bret Bielema.

Smith comes from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he was the NFL team’s linebackers’ coach in 2013.

Former DC Chris Ash has gone to Ohio State to be the Buckeyes’ DC – despite the Razorbacks going 3-9  in 2013 and lost every game from September 21st onwards.

“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”, Bielema said in a release. “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 formerly worked at Rutgers for four years.
