Big Changes Coming for Arkansas Razorbacks on the Gridiron

New Razorback head football coach Chad Morris says big changes are coming offensively for the Hog football team.

"Yeah we're gonna put in in the left lane and pop the clutch and put the hammer down," Morris said during his introductory press conference on Thursday.

Okay, that's hype but Morris specifically talked about how Arkansas pro-style run-based offense with a fullback will change under him.

"We'll go five wides back to two-back," Morris says.  "We'll go from one-back to two-back. A lot of changing the structures in trying to find the right personnel that creates mismatches."

All of this, Morris says, is based around a specific concept.

"We'll go fast, we'll play fast and we'll have fun doing it."

But what about defense and that rumor that he is about to hire Clemson defensive coordinator Bret Venables?

"I'm sure coach Swinney wouldn't like that but without just disclosing any names right now I've got a short list and so we've got a great plan for that so yes, we hope to get on that today," Morris joked.

As far as specifcs, Morris says he likes multiple defensive fronts gong back and forth between three and four man alignments while disguising it, something similar in philosophy at least to what the Arkansas tried to do last season.
