Arkansas fires Chad Morris after abysmal loss to Western Kentucky



There was little question that Arkansas was going to make a move away from Chad Morris as their head football coach but who would fill in for the remainder of the season was in question. Morris and company went 4-18 during his tenure including four embarrassing losses to non-P5 schools.

Fans and objective observers alike wondered aloud when - not if - Arkansas would fire Morris after the abysmal loss to the Hilltoppers, which was his fifth loss to a non-Power 5 opponent in two seasons. The school's SEC losing streak reached 18 straight games with a blowout loss at home against Mississippi State in early November. They never won an SEC game, with a 0-14 record.

"It is clear we have not made the progress necessary to compete and win, especially within the Southeastern Conference", AD Hunter Yuracheck said in a press release.

Stocks push past latest trade-war confusion to more records
It's a relatively rare thing, and it's often correctly predicted recessions in the past, though it doesn't have a ideal record. Gold fell $26.00 to $1,464.20 per ounce, silver fell 59 cents to $16.97 per ounce and copper rose 6 cents to $2.72 per pound.

Under the terms of Morris' six-year, $21 million contract, the Razorbacks will owe him 70% of his remaining compensation, which totals about $10 million. According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the Razorback Foundation stopped has stopped paying out the $320,833 monthly check Bielema was owed, claiming he hasn't fulfilled his end of the settlement to seek similar employment that would offset Arkansas' obligation.

Yurachek announced that a national search for the next head football coach will begin immediately. I have no doubt that as we move forward, we will identify a head coach that will help lead our program to that benchmark.
