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

Report Chad Morris likely to be hired at Arkansas

It's official. Chad Morris was named the 33rd head football coach in University of Arkansas history Wednesday.

Before SMU, Morris spent four seasons at Clemson, where he helped turn the Tigers into an offensive power house with his "tempo" approach and played a major role in the recruitment of quarterback Deshaun Watson, now with the Houston Texans.

Morris and Malzahn will have their first meeting as fellow SEC head coaches on September 22 next season on the Plains in Auburn. Prior to his tenure at SMU, he was offensive coordinator at both Clemson and Tulsa and was a long-time successful high school coach in Texas.

This will be Morris' second head-coaching job. 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. 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.

Morris emerged as Arkansas' pick to replace Bret Bielema after Auburn's Gus Malzahn turned down the Hogs last weekend. He has a career record of 14-22 in his three seasons. SMU ranks 13th nationally this season in total offense (493.8 yards per game) and eighth in scoring offense (40.2 points per game). In addition to his three state championships, Morris had three state runner-up teams - at Bay City in 2001 and Elysian Fields in 1998 and 1999.
