Chad Morris is far from the only coach making the move from SMU to Arkansas — and it will have a heavy dose of Clemson experience.
Several members of the SMU staff are coming with him, according to multiple reports. These reports followed another that said offensive coordinator Joe Craddock would also move to Arkansas.
Like Craddock, wide receivers coach Justin Stepp spent time with Morris when he was the Clemson offensive coordinator. Stepp was also a graduate assistant at Clemson. Stepp was a wide receiver and punt returner at Furman.
Dustin Fry, the offensive line coach, was a fifth-round pick of the St. Louis Rams after he was an all-ACC center at Clemson. He was also an assistant coach at Clemson for three years.
Morris, a Texas A&M graduate, was the Clemson offensive coordinator for four years when the team posted the top three scoring seasons in school history.
Just received word that wide receivers Coach Justin Stepp will also leave @SMU_Football to join Chad Morris at Arkansas.
