FOOTBALL: Robinson To Receive $350,000 Salary

FAYETTEVILLE — Newly hired Arkansas defensive coordinator Willy Robinson will get paid the same amount as his predecessors.

Robinson has agreed to a three-year deal worth $350,000 annually, according to information obtained Friday through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Robinson, 52, is the highest-paid assistant on Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino's new staff.

Robinson's salary is the same amount the Razorbacks paid former defensive coordinator Reggie Herring last season.

Ellis Johnson had also agreed to a three-year deal worth $350,000 annually before resigning as Arkansas' defensive coordinator on Jan. 24 to accept the same position at South Carolina.

Petrino named Robinson his new defensive coordinator on Feb. 6 after conducting a two-week search.
