Morris comes to Arkansas after spending the last three seasons as the Mustangs head coach with a 14-22 overall record. The Razorbacks promoted Hatfield's offensive coordinator, Jack Crowe, who had not been a head coach in more than a decade.
Morris emerged as Arkansas' pick to replace Bret Bielema after Auburn's Gus Malzahn turned down the Hogs last weekend.

The theme goes hand-in-hand with President Trump's belief that America needs to restore the tradition in Christmas. There are obvious comparisons between the Obama's official Christmas cards and the Trumps' first Christmas card.
He is also getting consideration for the Tennessee head coaching vacancy. Morris addresses Arkansas media Thursday for the first time.
A Dallas native and graduate of Texas A&M, Morris has extensive experience in Texas, having variously coached six Texas high schools for 16 years with three state championships closing with consecutive undefeated state championship teams at Lake Travis. Bielema was sacked November 24 after a 4-8 season in which the Razorbacks went 1-7 in conference play. The Mustangs were 2-10 in his first season and went 7-5 to earn a berth in the Miami Beach Bowl on December 20 against Louisiana Tech in 2017.
SMU went 1-11 the year before Morris was hired.
