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

So when Arkansas officially hired Chad Morris on Wednesday, it was a win-win for all involved.

Morris, 49, finishes his three years at SMU with a 14-22 mark. Their record was 2-10 his first year, 5-7 in 2016, and went 7-5 this past year. The bowl berth this year is the first since a 2012 Hawaii Bowl win over Fresno State.

The Razorbacks fired head coach Bret Bielema last month after a 4-8 finish in his fifth season.

Morris leaves SMU after taking the job in 2015. Entering bowl play, SMU is No. 13 nationally in total offense, averaging 494.5 yards per game, and No. 8 in scoring offense, putting up 40.2 points per game.




"The future is tremendously bright at the University of Arkansas with the addition of Chad Morris", Arkansas athletic director Hunter Yurachek said in a statement.

Things could have gotten a little bit awkward between Gus Malzahn and whomever Arkansas hired as its next head coach. "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". After 16 years as a head coach at the high school level in Texas, Morris entered the college ranks in 2010 as Tulsa's offensive coordinator and associate head coach.

Other candidates for the Arkansas job included Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables and Memphis coach Mike Norvell, who agreed to a contract extension Tuesday to remain at the school.
