SMU's Chad Morris emerges as top target at Arkansas

Mike Leach reportedly emerging as candidate for another head coaching job and it’s not Tennessee

The Arkansas coaching search has zeroed in on SMU's Chad Morris, sources have told SI. According to multiple reports, Morris is finalizing the details of his new contract with the Hogs.

Morris and Malzahn will have their first meeting as fellow SEC head coaches on September 22 next season on the Plains in Auburn. 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. He turned the program around from two wins in 2015 to the seven wins this season. Following the 2010 season he headed to Clemson as Dabo Swinney's offensive coordinator from 2011-14.

We have also heard that Ohtani reportedly likes the pitch the Giants made of possibly playing the outfield as well as pitch. The Red Sox had only $462,000 in bonus pool money left to offer Ohtani, an worldwide amateur free agent.

The 49-year-old Morris, a longtime Texas high school coach and former Clemson offensive coordinator, agreed Wednesday to a six-year contract worth $3.5 million annually. He will be formally introduced to the Razorback nation at 10 a.m. (CST) in the same venue where Arkansas introduced new athletic director Hunter Yurachek, the Fowler Family Baseball and Track Training Center.

This will be Morris' second head-coaching job. He led Lake Travis High School to back-to-back undefeated seasons and state championship in Texas' highest level of competition. "That's who I am", said Morris, a Dallas native, when he was hired at SMU in 2014. The Mustangs upset No. 11 Houston in the 2016 season, and clinched bowl eligibility this year with a thrilling, 38-34 win over Tulsa.
