Before SMU, Morris spent four seasons at Clemson, where he helped turn the Tigers into an offensive power house with his "tempo" approach and played a major role in the recruitment of quarterback Deshaun Watson, now with the Houston Texans. The following season, the 49-year-old Morris took over an SMU program that had fallen apart. Morris' first two recruiting classes at SMU were comprised entirely of Texas recruits. After 16 years as a head coach at the high school level in Texas, Morris entered the college ranks in 2010 as Tulsa's offensive coordinator and associate head coach.
Morris replaces five-year Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema fired November 24 after the Razorbacks concluded a 4-8 overall/1-7 SEC campaign. He led Lake Travis High School to back-to-back undefeated seasons and state championship in Texas' highest level of competition. The bowl berth this year is the first since a 2012 Hawaii Bowl win over Fresno State.
Morris emerged as Arkansas' pick to replace Bret Bielema after Auburn's Gus Malzahn turned down the Hogs last weekend. Norvell agreed to a contract extension at Memphis earlier Tuesday, and the Morris hire came into picture soon after.
