Coaching job profile: Pluses and minuses of the Arkansas opening

Arkansas head coach Chad Morris has been fired on Sunday.

Overall, Morris had a dismal 4-18 record and zero SEC wins (0-14) in two seasons.

Though the firing comes on the heels of Arkansas' 45-19 loss at home to Western Kentucky on Saturday, the decision to make a change before Morris could complete his second season had been weeks in the making. The school's SEC losing streak reached 18 straight games with a blowout loss at home against Mississippi State in early November.

Arkansas has an open date this coming weekend before finishing the season against LSU on the road and then Missouri at home. Throughout our history in football, as well as with our other sport programs, we have demonstrated that the University of Arkansas is capable of being nationally competitive.

Assistant coach and former Razorback quarterback Barry Lunney Jr. will serve as the interim head football coach for the remainder of the 2019 football season, the school said in its announcement.

Morris is owed more than $10 million in buyout money, according to recent buyout figures from USA Today.

With little evidence that the program was trending in the right direction and an exodus of fan support, Arkansas had little choice but to go in a different direction.

At issue is whether Bielema, who now works as a defensive line coach for the New England Patriots, breached his agreement by not actively pursuing another job with compensation similar to what Arkansas paid him. It may take them several years to compete to any extent in the SEC West.
