After weeks of searching, the University of Arkansas has hired its next head football coach. A deal could be worked out as soon as Wednesday. He was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Clemson from 2011-2014. Offensively, Morris has galloped the Mustangs from 128th of 128 the year before he arrived to this season ranking eighth nationally averaging 40.1 points per game.

Morris previously spent a year as Tulsa's offensive coordinator, but where he really made his name was in the high school ranks in Texas.

Per Trey Biddy of HawgSports.com, Morris will be named the Razorbacks' head coach.

Rehmani also said that Sibal had talked about shifting of the hearing on the advice of the AIMPLB and other Muslim parties. The Waqf Board said it wanted speedy justice in the case and was not in favour of deferment.

Bielema held a record of 29-34 for the Razorbacks and ended the 2017 season just 1-7 in the SEC West. The Tigers also posted the top three scoring seasons in school history, as well as four of the program's top five passing seasons, during that time.

"The future is tremendously bright at the University of Arkansas with the addition of Chad Morris", Arkansas athletic director Hunter Yurachek said in a statement. The bowl berth this year is the first since a 2012 Hawaii Bowl win over Fresno State.

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. The Mustangs improved their win total each year under Morris, with records of 2-10 in 2015, 5-7 last season and 7-5 this year.
