Arkansas Focused on Chad Morris in Coaching Search

Arkansas Focused on Chad Morris in Coaching Search

After weeks of searching, the University of Arkansas has hired its next head football coach. The Razorbacks promoted Hatfield's offensive coordinator, Jack Crowe, who had not been a head coach in more than a decade.

It was the only win over a ranked opponent in Morris' tenure at SMU.

Morris played a key role in helping Dabo Swinney bring Clemson to its current status as a national power as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2011 to '14.

Morris would become the 33rd head coach in Arkansas history.

The Razorbacks fired Bret Bielema last month after a 4-8 finish in his fifth season.

It has been a relatively long search over the past 12 days with the pursuit of Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn before the search turned firmly on Morris.

Morris is the man who coached former Texas QB Garrett Gilbert at Lake Travis outside of Austin, and prior to those years, he was at Stephenville, another Texas powerhouse, along with Bay City, Elysian Fields and Eustace.

According to multiple reports, Morris held a team meeting this morning with the Mustangs football team to tell them about his decision to come to the Natural State. He inherited a 1-11 program from June Jones in 2014 and this season led the Mustangs to a 7-5 record and bowl eligibility for the first time since 2012.

In his first year at SMU, the Mustangs went 2-10.
