Arkansas is expected to name current Southern Methodist coach Chad Morris to the same position with the Razorbacks, according to reports from the Associated Press and ESPN. Here are five things you should know about the Hogs' new head man.

Morris is considered one of college football's top offensive minds with a fast-paced style that places an emphasis on the passing game.

Morris has a wife, Paula, and two children: a daughter, Mackenzie, and a son, Chandler.

On whether Trump is in Utah as a subtle knock on Romney, the official said Romney was "not a focus" of Monday's trip. After originally disparaging Trump in more traditional political-speak, Romney eventually dropped the gloves.

Morris played a key role in helping Clemson become a national power when he was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2011 to 2014. Before getting to the collegiate level, Morris compiled a 169-38 career record as a high school coach in the state of Texas. The Mustangs are ranked No. 13 in the FBS in total yards and eighth in scoring.

Morris inherited a major rebuild at SMU, which went 1-11 the year before he arrived. At Clemson, Morris also coached players like Tajh Boyd (drafted by the New York Jets), Andre Ellington (Arizona Cardinals), DeAndre Hopkins (Houston Texans), Sammy Watkins (Los Angeles Rams), Martavis Bryant (Pittsburgh Steelers), Dwayne Allen (New England Patriots), Tyler Shatley (Jacksonville Jaguars) and Brandon Thomas (Jacksonville Jaguars). He won three state titles overall and played in six state championship games.

Julie Cromer Peoples, who was interim athletic director for almost three weeks, led the search for a coach, in conjunction with the search firm DHR International.
