Chad Morris To Be Named Next Arkansas Head Coach

Chad Morris To Be Named Next Arkansas Head Coach

SMU head coach Chad Morris is the leading candidate to fill the open vacancy at Arkansas as their next football coach in Fayetteville.

The Mustangs will play Louisiana Tech in the DXL Frisco Bowl on December 20 (8 p.m. ET, ESPN). SMU went 2-10 in his first season in 2015, 5-7 in '16 and 7-5 this season. He also had a one-year stint as offensive coordinator at Tulsa in 2010 following 16 seasons as a head coach at five different high schools in Texas.

Prior to taking over the SMU program, Morris was Clemson's offensive coordinator from 2011-14.

The SMU offense - worst among the worst in the country - has soared under Morris' leadership, averaging the eighth-most points per game (40.2) this season.

While we can't confirm Arkansas and Morris have reached an agreement, we're being told the two sides are in discussions. Arkansas hired Houston's Hunter Yurachek as its new athletics director on Monday.

Meanwhile, the Razorbacks are trying to get back to being relevant in the SEC.

The Razorbacks have been scouring the coaching market since firing Bret Bielema on November 24 following a 4-8 season in 2017.

After moving on from Bielema, Arkansas made a heavy play for Auburn's Gus Malzahn, an Arkansas native who played receiver for the Razorbacks. But if the Razorbacks become something other than a red-headed step child to Alabama, Auburn and LSU in the SEC West, he will prove to be the right choice.

With Malzahn out of the picture, Thamel reported Monday that Yurachek would target Morris and Memphis' Mike Norvell, both of whom Yurachek observed during his time in the AAC. However, Norvell Tuesday signed a $13 million extension to his contract at Memphis through 2022.
