OGDEN — Weber State University has selected their interim head coach after their previous head coach returned to Arkansas after just months in Utah.

Jody Sears, 44, joined Weber State this spring and has been working as the defensive coordinator for the Wildcats. He had been Washington State’s co-defensive coordinator for the past 3 seasons before coming to Utah.

Sears replaces John L. Smith, who returned to the Razorbacks as their interim head coach after Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino was fired. Smith was hired on Dec. 6, 2011, to replace Ron McBride, who stepped down at the end of last season.
