FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -Paul Petrino is joining his brother at Arkansas.
Petrino will be the Razorbacks' offensive coordinator next season under his older brother Bobby Petrino, who was hired as Arkansas' coach Tuesday after leaving the Atlanta Falcons.
Paul Petrino worked with his brother during Bobby Petrino's 13-game stint as Atlanta's coach. The younger Petrino was the Falcons' receivers coach.
``I am really excited to be at Arkansas and be part of this great program,'' Paul Petrino said. ``I'm looking forward to competing for championships.''
Houston Nutt resigned as Arkansas' coach Nov. 26, but defensive coordinator Reggie Herring was named interim coach. Herring will coach the 25th-ranked Razorbacks in the Cotton Bowl against No. 7 Missouri, and most of Nutt's staff has been kept around for that game.
Arkansas said Friday it received a waiver from the NCAA that allows the Razorbacks to add Paul Petrino without dropping anyone from the bowl staff. Paul Petrino will recruit for Arkansas but won't be part of bowl preparation.
Paul Petrino, 40, is six years younger than his brother. He was offensive coordinator and receivers coach under his brother at Louisville for four years before the two went to the Falcons. Louisville went 41-9 under Bobby Petrino.
