Former Clemson DC Morris Gets Arkansas Job

Former Clemson DC Morris Gets Arkansas Job

Arkansas has hired SMU's Chad Morris as head football coach, according to multiple reports. Morris went on to get his first head coaching job at SMU, where he spent the last three seasons.

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.

In his first year at SMU, the Mustangs went 2-10. Following the 2010 season he headed to Clemson as Dabo Swinney's offensive coordinator from 2011-14. Morris' name has been associated with the opening since before former head coach Bret Bielema was hired, the day after Bielema was sacked and throughout the search.

Without then mentioning Morris by name since the hiring wasn't official, Yurachek Wednesday morning said he was "100 percent comfortable with the results of the coaching search" conducted by Julie Cromer Peoples, Arkansas' senior associate athletic director who served as interim athletic director since the November 15 firing of Arkansas Athletic Director Jeff Long.

With Malzahn out of the picture, Thamel reported Monday that Yurachek would target Morris and Memphis' Mike Norvell, both of whom Yurachek observed during his time in the AAC. The Mustangs upset No. 11 Houston in the 2016 season, and clinched bowl eligibility this year with a thrilling, 38-34 win over Tulsa.

Morris, a Texas A&M graduate, was the Clemson offensive coordinator for four years when the team posted the top three scoring seasons in school history. He has since led the Mustangs from two wins to five wins to a shot at seven wins this year.
