SEC: Mallett forces Arkansas to do hand jives

Arkansas will have some new hand signals this season thanks to former Razorbacks quarterback Ryan Mallett.

When Mallett was interviewed by former Tampa Bay coach and current ESPN analyst Jon Gruden leading up to the NFL draft in April, he shared a couple of signals. Mallett was selected in the third round by New England.

"We already changed them," Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino said. "I wasn't real happy with him, by the way, when I was informed that he did that. He called me up and apologized, and he gave us a few ideas for some new hand signals, so that always helps."
