FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Less than three minutes after meeting his new team for the first time, Chad Morris had a much-needed message of hope for the Razorbacks.
Morris, who was hired away from SMU on Wednesday morning, had just walked into the team meeting room that afternoon in Fayetteville when he related a story about where he's been in his career.
Before being hired by the Mustangs, the 49-year-old Morris had worked as the offensive coordinator at defending national Clemson. Only, when Morris started with the Tigers, they weren't the same Clemson that reached the College Football Playoff for a third straight year this season.
