Chad Morris leaves SMU, becomes Arkansas head coach

Report Chad Morris likely to be hired at Arkansas

SMU head coach Chad Morris has left SMU to accept a the head coaching job at Arkansas, according to a report from ESPN's Chris Low. A deal could be worked out as soon as Wednesday.

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.

This will be Morris' second head-coaching job.
