SMU's Chad Morris to be hired as Arkansas head coach

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

Chad Morris has left SMU and is the new head football coach at the University of Arkansas, after days of speculation.

Morris leaves the Mustangs after compiling a 14-22 in three seasons.

Bielema took over in Fayeteville in December of 2012, leaving his head coaching job at the University of Wisconsin where he had coached since 2006.

"The future is tremendously bright at the University of Arkansas with the addition of Chad Morris", Yurachek was quoted in Wednesday afternoon's press release.

Per Trey Biddy of HawgSports.com, Morris will be named the Razorbacks' head coach.

Morris successfully rebuilt SMU in his three seasons with the program. 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.

Lamborghini unveils 'super SUV' - yours for £165000
When the Lamborghini Urus arrives in Australia in mid 2018, it'll be priced from $399,000 plus options and on road costs. Last year Lamborghini sold a mere 188 units in China, compared with 303 in the United Kingdom , a market 90% smaller.

Coach Morris spent four seasons as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Clemson before taking his first head coaching job at SMU.

Morris replaces Bret Bielema at Arkansas.

Bielema held a record of 29-34 for the Razorbacks and ended the 2017 season just 1-7 in the SEC West.

But like many teams that run hurry-up offenses, SMU's defense has been among college football's worst. Hunter Yurachek was hired from Houston on Monday.

In his first year at SMU, the Mustangs went 2-10. The Mustangs were 2-10 in his first season and went 7-5 to earn a berth in the Miami Beach Bowl on December 20 against Louisiana Tech in 2017.
