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.
