Multiple outlets are reporting that SMU RB coach Jeff Traylor will serve as interim head coach.

With Chad Morris taking flight to Fayetteville, Traylor will take over in an interim capacity as the Mustangs prepare for their Frisco Bowl showdown with Louisiana Tech. He was initially hired by SMU last winter after serving as an assistant on Charlie Strong's staff at Texas.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that "many believe" that SMU redshirt junior WR Trey Quinn will declare for the draft with HC Chad Morris accepting the open Arkansas job.

Morris officially accepted the Arkansas gig on Wednesday, which could serve as partial impetus for Quinn to jump for the pros. Should he declare, Pauline expects the 6-foot-1, 200-pounder to run the 40-yard dash in the 4.3's at the Combine. The LSU transfer exploded for a 106-1191-12 receiving line this season.
Dec 6 - 6:13 PM

SMU redshirt junior WR Trey Quinn caught six passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 41-38 win over Tulane.

Quinn's 77-yard touchdown was impressive, as he took a short completion, juked inside, then ran past the defense along the sideline. Quinn has now surpassed 100 catches, 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns on the season.
Nov 25 - 4:43 PM

SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton caught six passes for 107 yards in the school's 41-38 win over Tulane on Saturday.

Sutton is one of the best receivers in the nation, and this is a nice bounce-back game after making just one catch last week versus Memphis. He will be worth watching in whatever bowl SMU lands.
Nov 25 - 4:30 PM

SMU HC Chad Morris expects senior LB Anthony Rhone (concussion) to be able to play against Tulane on Saturday.

Rhone (6'0/229) missed this past weekend's shootout loss to Memphis while in concussion protocol. The senior practiced on Tuesday. In 10 games this season, Rhone has recorded 60 tackles (4.0 for loss) and 1.5 sacks.
Nov 21 - 6:19 PM

SMU junior RB Xavier Jones rushed 20 times for 175 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 66-45 loss at Memphis.

While Ben Hicks, Courtland Sutton and the SMU pass attack gets more attention, Jones has had a very good season. He has hit the century mark in yardage in back-to-back games while finding the end zone at least once in each of his past five outings. He'll look to keep it rolling in the regular season finale against Tulane next Saturday.
Nov 18 - 5:03 PM

SMU redshirt sophomore QB Ben Hicks completed 15-of-34 passes for 218 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in a 66-45 loss at Memphis on Saturday.

Hicks has four TD strikes in back-to-back outings, and at least two touchdown passes in nine of his 11 starts this season. The Mustangs won their sixth game, so they're eligible to go bowling, but they'll look to add to their win total next Saturday in the regular season finale against Tulane.
Nov 18 - 4:59 PM

"Many" in the NFL believe SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton could land in the top 10 picks this April, according to Albert Breer.

Sutton is a very fun player to watch and is on his way to the Senior Bowl. On the surface this looks like a bold statement that Sutton could be drafted this early, but remember three receivers were selected in the top 10 picks last April. The rookie receiver class has really struggled as a whole. We preferred Corey Davis to Sutton, but Sutton has a really nice size and skill combination.
Nov 15 - 11:26 AM

SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton has received a Senior Bowl invitation.

Our own Josh Norris recently wrote about Sutton's game and came away very impressed. At 6-foot-3 and 215-pounds, Sutton still wins after the catch with fluidity and movement. He also can win naturally at the catch point thanks to his big frame. Receiver and corner matchups are one of our favorite parts of all-star games, and Sutton could be the top receiver in attendance.
Nov 14 - 11:08 AM

SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton hauled in seven receptions for 123 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Saturday's 43-40 loss at Navy.

Sutton bounced back nicely after laying an egg last week in a showdown with UCF. He has 112 or more receiving yards in four of his past six outings, and he has totaled 11 touchdown receptions and one scoring run through 10 outings this season. He has a bright future at the next level, and he'll add to his big stat totals in a potential high-scoring battle next week in Memphis.
Nov 11 - 8:00 PM

SMU junior RB Xavier Jones rushed 18 times for 106 yards and a score in Saturday's 43-40 loss at Navy.

Jones has visited the end zone in four consecutive games, and seven total times this season. With a quarterback like Ben Hicks, the run game is often overlooked, but Jones has a chance at a 1,000-yard season with a double-digit rushing touchdown total. He could have another big day next week in a potential shootout with Memphis.
Nov 11 - 7:57 PM

SMU redshirt sophomore QB Ben Hicks completed 16 of his 29 pass attempts for 261 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 43-40 loss at Navy.

Hicks continues to be very productive, win or lose. He has at least one touchdown pass in each of his 10 starts, and two or more scoring strikes in eight of his outings. He fits the system of Chad Morris very well, and he is just a sophomore. Hicks should have another giant stat line in a potential shootout against Memphis next weekend.
Nov 11 - 7:55 PM

SMU redshirt junior WR Trey Quinn caught 11 passes for 47 yards in a 31-24 loss to Central Florida on Saturday.

The big catch total is no surprise -- this is a player that had a streak of catching 15 straight passes in three games, after all -- but the low-yardage certainly is. Quinn (6'1/200) won't look back on this one fondly, as he also had a crucial drop on 4th and 3 that ended the Mustangs last drive of the game. Quinn will look to up the yardage next weekend against Navy.
Nov 5 - 2:08 PM

SMU redshirt sophomore WR James Proche caught seven passes for 173 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-24 loss to UCF.

The Mustangs are headlined at wideout by Courtland Sutton and Trey Quinn, but Proche is more than capable of stellar showings in his own right. The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder started out Saturday's game with a bang, hauling in an 86-yard touchdown early in the first quarter and proceeding to add to that early yardage spark as the game unfolded. This was his third 100-yard performance of the campaign and his best overall game on the yardage front.
Nov 4 - 11:29 PM

SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton caught six passes for 136 yards in a 38-34 victory over Tulsa on Friday.

Sutton (6'4/214) has now gone over 100 yards in three of the last four games. The only thing the junior wideout was unable to do was find the end zone, but to say he was a big part of SMU putting up 38 points is an understatement. He's one of the most productive receivers in all of college football, and a legit first-round candidate should he enter the draft. SMU takes on UCF next week.
