  • Chad Morris Reportedly to Be Named Arkansas Head Coach After 3 Years at SMU

Arkansas has agreed to a deal with SMU coach Chad Morris, according a person with knowledge of the decision.

Morris had a 14-22 record in three seasons rebuilding the program at SMU.

"As we began our search for the next head football coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks, Chad Morris was a name that quickly emerged as someone that would be an excellent choice for our program".

The Mustangs qualified for a bowl game this season for the first time since 2012 when June Jones was the head coach for SMU.

Manchester United veteran Ashley Young has made the left-back spot his own in recent weeks following a return of three goals in two games.

Before SMU, Morris spent four seasons at Clemson, where he helped turn the Tigers into an offensive power house with his "tempo" approach and played a major role in the recruitment of quarterback Deshaun Watson, now with the Houston Texans.

Morris has served as the head coach for the SMU Mustangs since 2015 after leaving his offensive coordinator position at Clemson University. Offensively, Morris has galloped the Mustangs from 128th of 128 the year before he arrived to this season ranking eighth nationally averaging 40.1 points per game. Morris' name has been associated with the opening since before former head coach Bret Bielema was hired, the day after Bielema was sacked and throughout the search.

Morris replaces Bret Bielema, who was sacked after posting a 29-34 record in five seasons. Arkansas hired Yurachek as its new athletic director on Monday. "That's who I am", said Morris, a Dallas native, when he was hired at SMU in 2014.
