Arkansas fires head coach Chad Morris after embarrassing loss

Arkansas fires head coach Chad Morris after embarrassing loss

The Chad Morris era at Arkansas has come to a quick end, as he was sacked before reaching the end of his second season. The move comes as Chad Morris was sacked after just 22 games as the Hogs head coach, in which he went 4-18 overall and 0-14 in the SEC.

The Razorbacks had enough after watching an embarrassing 45-19 home loss to Western Kentucky on Saturday. The school's SEC losing streak reached 18 straight games with a blowout loss at home against Mississippi State in early November. The Hogs are 0-14 in the Southeastern Conference. The Hogs then go on the road to play SEC rival No. 2 LSU.

Arkansas has made a change in leadership in its football program. Throughout our history in football, as well as with our other sport programs, we have demonstrated that the University of Arkansas is capable of being nationally competitive.

"I want to express my personal and professional regard to Coach Morris and thank him for his investment in the lives of our student-athletes".

The police rebellion erupted Friday among the elite tactical operations unit known as UTOP in the central city of Cochabamba. A former president himself, he asked Bolivia's congress on Friday to pass an emergency bill to prepare for new elections .

Lunney, a Fort Smith native, is in his seventh season as an assistant coach for the Razorbacks and is the lone hold over from the Bret Bielema era. The Razorback Foundation will make monthly payments to Morris through 2023.

Yurachek announced that a national search for the next head football coach will begin immediately. With Morris gone, Arkansas can only do better. It may take them several years to compete to any extent in the SEC West.

Possible successors include Auburn's Gus Malzahn, whom the Hogs targeted before they hired Morris, and Memphis coach Mike Norvell.
