Chad Morris looks like he could be the next head coach at Arkansas. Yahoo’s Pete Thamel reported on Tuesday that a deal between Morris and Arkansas is expected in 24 hours. Morris has been mentioned as a top backup plan for Arkansas if the school was unable to land Gus Malzahn, which turned out to be the case. The 49-year-old was an extremely successful high school coach in Texas, then led Clemson to tremendous success as their offensive coordinator under Dabo Swinney. He has been the head coach at SMU the past three seasons. Despite going 14-22, the team has improved in each season under him. He is viewed as an up-and-coming coach.
