Long has kept the rest of Petrino's staff in place, at least through the end of the spring game.

The game attracted a record crowd of 42,000 last spring, a number Swanson hopes to exceed this year. The junior can't think of any better way to finally turn the page on the last few weeks.
"I think it's unbelievable," Arkansas special teams and defensive ends coach Steve Caldwell said. "They have stayed focused. I know there are a lot of distractions out there and everybody's wondering, 'What's next, who's going to be the next coach,' but they know what it's all about.

He knows just how chaotic the Razorbacks' spring must have appeared to the outside world.

It was only shortly before Jessica Dorrell's name was revealed in a police report that Petrino came clean to athletic director Jeff Long, who initially put Petrino on paid leave before firing the coach April 10.
Bobby Petrino's ouster as coach, the sordid details of his affair with a football department employee, the arrests of three teammates Swanson and his teammates have done their best to avoid the drama.
