(The Spread) – In wake of Bobby Petrino getting the ax in Fayetteville, oddsmakers have released odds for who will be the next head coach at Arkansas.

New Arkansas State head coach and former Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn is the favorite to replace Petrino at 5/2, while current UAB head coach Garrick McGee has the next best odds at 3/1. (McGee was also Arkansas’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach before UAB hired him.)

Continuing with the odds, Skip Holtz is 7/2 to become the next head coach at Arkansas, while Mario Cristobal is 5/1. Kirby Smart is 6/1 while Gary Patterson is 10/1 and both Butch Davis and Charlie Strong are 15/1, respectively. Former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson is a 20/1 long shot to take over the Razorbacks.
