Morris appears to be the next UA head coach

Morris successfully rebuilt SMU in his three seasons with the program. He inherited a bottom-5 program in FBS and took the Ponies from 2-10 in his debut to 5-7 a year ago to 7-5 with a bid in the new Frisco Bowl this season.

He also had a one-year stint as offensive coordinator at Tulsa in 2010 following 16 seasons as a head coach at five different high schools in Texas. SMU ranks 13th nationally in total offense (493.8 yards per game) and eighth in scoring offense (40.2 points per game).

Morris went 14-22 in three seasons at SMU, though that record is deceiving.

While we can't confirm Arkansas and Morris have reached an agreement, we're being told the two sides are in discussions.

Trump Lawyers Try to Snuff Summer Zervos Defamation Lawsuit
Constitution immunizes the President from being sued in state court while in office. Jones only applies to lawsuits in federal courts, not state courts.

Sources tell CBS Sports that influential people in the college football world and within the SEC who consulted with Arkansas - a program that didn't have an athletic director until Hunter Yurachek was hired on Monday - nearly universally recommended Morris for the job due to his integrity, Texas ties and ability to consistently produce top-tier offenses. Long was the man who hired Bielema away from Wisconsin following the 2012 regular season in what was considered a major coup for the Razorbacks at the time.

The Razorbacks fired Bielema last month after a 4-8 finish in his fifth season. With Auburn and Memphis locking up Gus Malzahn and Mike Norvell, respectively, Arkansas has turned its attention to Morris. But if the Razorbacks become something other than a red-headed step child to Alabama, Auburn and LSU in the SEC West, he will prove to be the right choice.

But with Malzahn signing an extension with the Tigers, Arkansas had to move on.
