These two coaches are getting a look from the Razorbacks.
So with Auburn’s Gus Malzahn out of the running, who does Arkansas turn to?
According to Arkansas radio host Bo Mattingly, the program will look at SMU’s Chad Morris and Memphis’ Mike Norvell.
Mattingly also added that Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables is not a candidate.
Chad Morris and Mike Norvel are candidates for Arkansas. Brent Venables does not appear to be in the mix.

Morris and Norvell are both regarded as up-and-coming coaches with offensive mindsets, so while their names might not have the same cache as Malzahn’s, they have solid credentials.
Morris’ SMU squad is slated to play in the Miami Beach Bowl, while Norvell’s Memphis team has accepted a bid to the Liberty Bowl.
