Report Chad Morris likely to be hired at Arkansas

One day after word emerged that SMU coach Chad Morris had become the top target in Arkansas' coaching search, it appears as if the deal is now done.

The 49-year-old Morris is 14-22 in three seasons with the Mustangs, including 7-5 this year.

The Texas native was a longtime high school coach in the state before beginning his collegiate career as the offensive coordinator at Tulsa in 2010.

He replaces Bret Bielema, who was sacked after compiling a 29-34 record in five seasons - including 11-29 in the Southeastern Conference.

"The future is tremendously bright at the University of Arkansas with the addition of Chad Morris", Arkansas athletic director Hunter Yurachek said in a statement. SMU ranks 13th nationally this season in total offense (493.8 yards per game) and eighth in scoring offense (40.2 points per game).

The precise content of Strzok's text messages is unknown, and it remains unclear whether Horowitz will make them public. A Justice Department spokeswoman said " We are aware of the allegations and are taking any and all appropriate steps".

After a flurry of hires were made on Tuesday, news surfaced in the evening that Chad Morris will be leaving the SMU Mustangs to take over in Fayetteville. He led Lake Travis High School to back-to-back undefeated seasons and state championship in Texas' highest level of competition.

Morris coached at five Texas high schools in 16 seasons and had a record of 169-38.

After numerous reports linked mutual interest between Malzahn and the Razorbacks and a return to his home state, the Auburn head coach ultimately signed a long extension with the Tigers that included a nice raise.

Arkansas went 4-8 in 2017 before firing head coach Bret Bielema.
