Arkansas fired coach Chad Morris a couple of weeks ago and is looking for the guy who will serve as his replacement for the coming years.

One name at the top of many lists is Memphis coach Mike Norvell, who has had great success at Memphis the past few years.

According to, Arkansas has indeed met with Norvell, but he remains more interested in the opening at Florida State:

Sources tell FootballScoop that Arkansas has met with Memphis head coach Mike Norvell. At this time Norvell is said to be more interested in the opening at Florida State than Arkansas; however we wouldn’t rule Norvell out of this one just yet.

Florida State seems to have other candidates in mind at the moment, so we’ll have to see how that search plays out.

For now, though, FootballScoop still considers Norvell a prime candidate for the Arkansas opening.
