Now firmly on the hot seat, Arkansas head coach Chad Morris has the final desperate move to save his job: he’s benched both of his transfer quarterbacks in favor of redshirt freshman John Stephen Jones. On the team depth chart released today, true freshman K.J. Jefferson is listed as the backup, with Morris saying that both will play. Ben Hicks and Nick Starkel are not listed.
Morris’ best argument for a third year is for the offense to look respectable with the young players in charge.
