    Arkansas coach Chad Morris heads to the locker room after the Razorbacks’ 45-19 loss to Western Kentucky in an NCAA college football game on Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark.

A person with knowledge of the decision says Arkansas has fired football coach Chad Morris after 22 games and no Southeastern Conference victories.

The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the school had not yet made an official announcement.

Morris finished 4-18 and 0-14 in the SEC. Arkansas made the move less than 24 hours after the Razorbacks lost 45-19 to a Western Kentucky. Morris’ only victories came again Eastern Illinois, Portland State — two FCS teams — Tulsa and Colorado State.
