Multiple names have been thrown around as a potential successor to Chad Morris, who was fired from the position following the Razorbacks’ loss to Western Kentucky. One of the main names in discussion has been Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin. UA officials have reportedly visited Boca Raton, Fla., where Kiffin in located.
Other potential candidates for the job that have been mentioned by media outlets include Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell and Washington State head coach Mike Leach.
