Arkansas selects SMU’s Chad Morris as head coach

SMU’s Chad Morris has agreed to a six-year contract to become the new head coach at Arkansas.

Morris, 49, led the Mustangs to a 14-22 record in three seasons at the helm, improving each year along the way.

SMU went 7-5 this season and will play Louisiana Tech in the DXL Frisco Bowl on Dec. 20.

Morris will replace Bret Bielema, who was fired last month following a 4-8 finish in his fifth season.
