  • SMU coach Chad Morris

Arkansas has reportedly found its next head football coach, with Chad Morris set to take over the program after spending the past three years at SMU. According to multiple reports, Morris is finalizing the details of his new contract with the Hogs.

Just more than a week after ending the 2017 season with a 4-8 record and firing their head coach, Arkansas has found their new leader of the football program.

The Mustangs are guaranteed a winning record for the first time since 2012 and for the fifth time since the program rebooted in 1989. Following the 2010 season he headed to Clemson as Dabo Swinney's offensive coordinator from 2011-14.

United States trade deficit rises to $48.7 billion on record imports
Imports of drilling and oilfield equipment climbed by $304 million, and imports of cellphones rose by $303 million. Imports, on the other hand, increased to $244.6 billion in October, up from $240.8 billion in September.


This will be Morris' second head-coaching job.

Morris leaves SMU after taking the job in 2015. He has spent time at SMU, Clemson, Tulsa, and 16 years at the Texas high school level going 169-38. On Monday, the school announced Houston's Hunter Yurachek would be its new athletic director, replacing Jeff Long.

Bielema was sacked after the Razorbacks went 4-8 this season. SMU ranks 13th nationally this season in total offense (493.8 yards per game) and eighth in scoring offense (40.2 points per game). "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". Norvell agreed to a contract extension at Memphis earlier Tuesday, and the Morris hire came into picture soon after.
