BOT met for a loooiong time and announced no decisions were made. Then hours later, Houston ‘s AD accepts Arkansas AD job.

I suspect the new AD, BOT, and BMD’s get their thoughts together and then go after their man.


Morris, Norvell, Leach, Venerables and Kiffen seem to be the popular candidates

I really hope its not Kiffen. He will just end up screwing us over.

Norvell signs extension at Memphis.

Hogs rumored to sign Cad Morris to HC and he’ll target Brent Venerables as DC with lucrative contract.

Venables currently makes 1.4 million at Clemson. He would be a really good hire for Arkansas. Morris? We'll see.

Rumored that Venables will become the DC for over 2 million per season. Let that sink in.

RE: Things could get interesting at Arkansas today
Pulling Venables is going to be very hard. Unless he's unhappy at Clemson for some reason then I don't see why he'd take that position.

I know he used to work with Chad Morris, but Clemson is a championship level program right now. Arkansas is rebuilding.

He and Chad are very good friends and it’s very likely

Venerables said in an interview in Little Rock this weekend at the Frank Broyles Assistant Coach awards that Chad was the reason he left Oklahoma for Clemson and he told Bo Mattingly, the state wide sports radio guy that covers the hogs, that his representatives have discussed a few things about Arkansas openings.

Feeling better about Morris if he can bring Brent with him; the good old boy Network clearly not afraid to throw the cash around.

I would think a comment like that would be a reference to the head coaching gig rather than a coordinator slot, but I could be wrong.

Very true but Brent seems hesitant to leap into head coaching. Arkansas interviewed him when the hogs hired Bielema 5 seasons ago. If he wanted a P5 HC job by now he would have it.

@SportsTalkwBo
Arkansas is expected to name SMU's Chad Morris as head coach later today sometime after the new AD is introduced. Morris is expected to be introduced at a press conference tomorrow. Deal has still not officially been signed but should be later this morning.

Morris is meeting with his team this morning and is expected to sign the deal after that.

It is Morris. Now let's see what Venables does.

I think it's a pretty good hire.

Morris knows TX recruiting and has taken a very weak SMU program and made them halfway decent.

He's obviously good at coaching offense and I think that's what Arkansas needs.
