Arkansas hired SMU HC Chad Morris to serve in the same capacity. A deal could be worked out as soon as Wednesday. Morris' Mustangs went 7-5 this season in what was a fantastic turnaround effort by the coach - his crew went just 2-10 in his inaugural campaign back in 2015. Before Morris took over the program, SMU went 3-21 in the two season prior to his arrival.
