Arkansas hires SMU's Morris as head coach

The University of Arkansas officially announced the hire of Chad Morris as the 33rd head coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks at approximately 1:18 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017.

The former Clemson offensive coordinator (2011-2014) has a 14-22 record at SMU in a complete rebuilding situation. Morris' first two recruiting classes at SMU were comprised entirely of Texas recruits.

The Razorbacks have been scouring the coaching market since firing Bret Bielema on November 24 following a 4-8 season in 2017.

Without then mentioning Morris by name since the hiring wasn't official, Yurachek Wednesday morning said he was "100 percent comfortable with the results of the coaching search" conducted by Julie Cromer Peoples, Arkansas' senior associate athletic director who served as interim athletic director since the November 15 firing of Arkansas Athletic Director Jeff Long.

Devin Singletary ran for 164 yards and three touchdowns and Florida Atlantic beat North Texas in coach Lane Kiffin's first season. We respect it, move forward, keep swinging and the most important thing is to go win this next game for our seniors.

Morris replaces Bret Bielema at Arkansas. Now that SMU program is going to a bowl game and I think they're in the top 10 in the country in scoring offense. In addition to his three state championships, Morris had three state runner-up teams - at Bay City in 2001 and Elysian Fields in 1998 and 1999. 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.

With Malzahn out of the picture, Thamel reported Monday that Yurachek would target Morris and Memphis' Mike Norvell, both of whom Yurachek observed during his time in the AAC.

Acosta, 27, of Puerto Rico, is 17-1-the only defeat was by decision to Tanaka in May-and all of his wins have been by knockout. Moments later, Ali connected with a left hook and Cotto looked like he was in a bit of trouble, though he quickly recovered.

SMU went 7-5 in the 2017 regular season and finished eighth in the country while averaging 40.2 points per game and more than 300 yards passing per contest, ranked 16th in the nation.
