Chad Morris likely to be hired at Arkansas

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

Arkansas has hired SMU's Chad Morris as the new football coach. A deal could be worked out as soon as Wednesday.

Morris played a key role in helping Clemson become a national power when he was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2011 to 2014.

The Razorbacks have been mired in mediocrity since back-to-back double-digit-win seasons in 2010-11 in Bobby Petrino's final years with the program. He spent 15 years as a Texas high school coach before being hired at Tulsa as an assistant.


This will be Morris' second head-coaching job. Bielema was sacked November 24 after a 4-8 season in which the Razorbacks went 1-7 in conference play. He will be formally introduced to the Razorback nation at 10 a.m. (CST) in the same venue where Arkansas introduced new athletic director Hunter Yurachek, the Fowler Family Baseball and Track Training Center. He led Lake Travis High School to back-to-back undefeated seasons and state championship in Texas' highest level of competition.

After moving on from Bielema, Arkansas made a heavy play for Auburn's Gus Malzahn, an Arkansas native who played receiver for the Razorbacks. "I am pleased that Hunter Yurachek had the opportunity to be involved in the final decision and offer and we can not wait to have Chad leading our program".

The Mustangs are guaranteed a winning record for the first time since 2012 and for the fifth time since the program rebooted in 1989.
