Arkansas hires SMU's Morris as head coach

SMU coach Chad Morris

Chad Morris has left SMU and is the new head football coach at the University of Arkansas, after days of speculation. A deal could be worked out as soon as Wednesday. He was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Clemson from 2011-2014. During his time leading the Mustangs, the 49 year old recorded an overall record of 14-22.

Morris provided the SMU program with some signature wins.

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.

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.

Toys R Us confirms plans to shut at least 26 United Kingdom stores
Retail analyst Kate Hardcastle, from Insight With Passion, said the challenge facing Toys R Us is a common theme of retailers. Accounts for the year to January show a turnover of £418million, on which it made an operating loss of £0.5million.

Morris replaces five-year Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema fired November 24 after the Razorbacks concluded a 4-8 overall/1-7 SEC campaign. On Monday, the school announced Houston's Hunter Yurachek would be its new athletic director, replacing Jeff Long.

Morris is considered one of the top offensive-minded coaches in college football.

After moving on from Bielema, Arkansas made a heavy play for Auburn's Gus Malzahn, an Arkansas native who played receiver for the Razorbacks. He runs a hurry-up, spread offense.

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. SMU finished the 2017 season with a 7-5 record, finishing 4-4 in the AAC conference. Bielema had been the head coach for the Badgers since 2006.
