Chad Morris leaves SMU to accept Arkansas head coaching job

Chad Morris leaves SMU to accept Arkansas head coaching job”

The University of Arkansas will hire SMU's Chad Morris to be its next head football coach, according to KTHV in Little Rock. A deal could be worked out as soon as Wednesday. The Mustangs improved only to 2-10 in 2015 but jumped to 5-7 in 2016 and this season are 7-5 and bound to play Louisiana Tech Dec. 20 in the Frisco Bowl in Frisco, Texas.

Morris previously spent a year as Tulsa's offensive coordinator, but where he really made his name was in the high school ranks in Texas. In his five seasons, Bielema had a 29-34 overall record and was just 11-29 in SEC play after finishing 4-8 (1-7 SEC) this year.

"The future is tremendously bright at the University of Arkansas with the addition of Chad Morris".

Morris replaces Bret Bielema at Arkansas.

But like many teams that run hurry-up offenses, SMU's defense has been among college football's worst.

The 49-year-old Morris will formally be introduced on Thursday. He totaled a 169-38 record (.816) and earned Coach of the Year honors 11 times. He won 82 percent of his games and led Lake Travis High School to back-to-back, undefeated (16-0) state championship seasons. Hunter Yurachek was hired from Houston on Monday.

After numerous reports linked mutual interest between Malzahn and the Razorbacks and a return to his home state, the Auburn head coach ultimately signed a long extension with the Tigers that included a nice raise.
