    After going 4-18 with no SEC victories over the past 2 seasons (2-8 this season), Arkansas has released Chad Morris and appointed Barry Lunney, Jr as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.

    “As part of my continued evaluation, I have come to the conclusion that a change in leadership is necessary to move our football program forward and position it for success,” Hunter Yurachek said. “It is clear that we have not made the progress necessary to compete and win, especially within the Southeastern Conference. 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. I have no doubt that as we move forward, we will identify a head coach that will help lead our program to that benchmark.

    “I want to express my personal and professional regard to Coach Morris and thank him for his investment in the lives of our student-athletes.”

    Hunter Yurachek also announced that the national search was underway immediately for the next head football coach.
