BRYANT — Chad Morris is fortunate to be an avid runner.
Since spring football practice ended April 6, the new University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, coach has crisscrossed the state attending various functions, becoming acquainted with devoted fans and getting more than his fill of Arkansas’ finest cuisine.
Thursday’s tour stop at The Center at Bishop Park included a ton of handshakes, signing a sufficient amount of autographs and, of course, being served a large quantity of catfish with all the fixings.
“I’m a big runner. I love to run,” Morris joked before speaking to an estimated crowd of 600 fans. “I try to balance it out and I try to eat as healthy as I can, but you’ve got to love some catfish and barbecue. You dive in and go after it.”
As long as there’s food being served, the new Razorbacks coach sees more running in his future. Randy Ross, the director of football operations, is Morris’ running partner.
“Coach Ross and I have been running for the last three or four years,” Morris said. “We try to go 4 1/2 to 5 miles a day. We do that to just get away, get out of the office more than anything.”
