— Robb Smith will make $500,000 in his new role as Arkansas' defensive coordinator.

Smith's contract is for two seasons and includes a $150,000 buyout if he leaves prior to Feb. 15, 2016. The buyout drops to $100,000 until June 30, 2016 and is waived if Smith leaves for a head coaching position or NFL defensive coordinator job.

Smith, who coached linebackers last season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, replaces Chris Ash as the Razorbacks' defensive coordinator. Ash was paid $550,000 last season at Arkansas.
