SMU's Chad Morris emerges as top target at Arkansas

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

SMU head coach Chad Morris is the leading candidate to fill the open vacancy at Arkansas as their next football coach in Fayetteville. Morris went on to get his first head coaching job at SMU, where he spent the last three seasons.

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.

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

A Dallas native and graduate of Texas A&M, Morris has extensive experience in Texas, having variously coached six Texas high schools for 16 years with three state championships closing with consecutive undefeated state championship teams at Lake Travis.

"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", Cromer Peoples said. 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. Hunter Yurachek was hired from Houston on Monday. 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.

In his first year at SMU, the Mustangs went 2-10.
