Arkansas reportedly reaches deal with SMU coach Chad Morris

A former Oklahoma high school coach believes Chad Morris will win over the Arkansas high school coaches. A deal could be worked out as soon as Wednesday. This season, Morris' third with the program, the Mustangs will play Louisiana Tech in the Frisco Bowl, the program's first bowl appearance since 2012.

Before coaching SMU, Morris spent four seasons as offensive coordinator at Clemson from 2011-14.

Morris' hiring leaves only Tennessee among SEC teams with head-coaching openings.

"Coach Morris aligns with the priorities we sought to find in our next head football coach including relentless work ethic and the ability to maintain good relationships within our state and beyond to attract the nation's top talent". He runs a hurry-up, spread offense. He led Lake Travis High School to back-to-back undefeated seasons and state championship in Texas' highest level of competition. He totaled a 169-38 record (.816) and earned Coach of the Year honors 11 times. "That's who I am", said Morris, a Dallas native, when he was hired at SMU in 2014. The Mustangs were 2-10 in his first season and went 7-5 to earn a berth in the Miami Beach Bowl on December 20 against Louisiana Tech in 2017. SMU improved to 5-7 a year ago, including a 38-16 win over No. 11 Houston.
