Arkansas Focused on Chad Morris in Coaching Search

SMU head coach Chad Morris is the leading candidate to fill the open vacancy at Arkansas as their next football coach in Fayetteville. Following the 2010 season he headed to Clemson as Dabo Swinney's offensive coordinator from 2011-14.

According to multiple reports, Morris held a team meeting Wednesday morning to tell his SMU players about his decision to head northeast to the Natural State.

The Razorbacks finished the 2017 season with a disappointing 4-8 record and 1-7 mark in conference play.

Morris replaces Bret Bielema at Arkansas. Arkansas hired Yurachek as its new athletic director on Monday. The Mustangs rank 122nd nationally in total defense (486.7 yards per game) and 113th in scoring defense (35.1 points per game) this year and never have ranked in the top 100 of either category under Morris. "Coach Morris aligns with the priorities we sought to find in our next head football coach including relentless work ethic and the ability to maintain good relationships within our state and beyond to attract the nation's top talent". He won 82 percent of his games and led Lake Travis High School to back-to-back, undefeated (16-0) state championship seasons. "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 upset No. 11 Houston in the 2016 season, and clinched bowl eligibility this year with a thrilling, 38-34 win over Tulsa. The former Wisconsin head coach was signed through the 2020 season and will be paid an $11.8 million buyout.
