According to sources, the Arkansas Razorbacks have found its next head coach. The Razorbacks are expected to hire SMU Mustangs head coach Chad Morris as its next head coach.
The deal is expected to be completed in the next day. He would replace Bret Bielema as head coach.
The Razorbacks top two targets, Auburn Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn and Memphis Tigers head coach Mike Norvell, were locked up to contract extensions, then they turned their attention to Morris. He has been mentioned for other jobs before; however, he has not taken a new job until now.
He was the Clemson Tigers offensive coordinator from 2011 through 2014, before taking the SMU job. He replaced June Jones as the Mustangs head coach and it’s been a struggle.
In his first season in 2015, the Mustangs went 2-10. However, these past two seasons, the team has made progress. They are 7-5 this season.
Morris would bring an offensive attack to Fayetteville, Arkansas that was not seen under Bielema. He is also looking to attempt to snatch Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables to be his defensive coordinator.
Venables is considered one of the best defensive minds in college football.
