Chad Morris sticking with Clemson despite rumors

Joshua S. Kelly-US PRESSWIRE

The Tigers' offensive coordinator is happy he's staying put.

Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris was rumored to be in position to take a few head coaching jobs after the regular season ended, but he's sticking with the Tigers, writes Pete Iacobelli of The Associated Press:

Morris, though, said he's glad to be remaining with the 14th-ranked Tigers and prepare his players to face No. 5 LSU at the Chick-Fil-A Bowl later this month.

"People had me going all over the place," Morris said. "Everybody had me leaving but me."

Schools like Texas Tech, North Carolina State and Auburn were reportedly interested in hiring Morris, but instead he'll be focused on coaching the Tigers in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve.

Morris has been the offensive coordinator at Clemson for the last two seasons. This season, the Tigers' offense averaged 42.3 points per game, which is one of the top marks in the nation.

Clemson has a balanced offensive attack. The Tigers average 320 passing yards and 199 rushing yards per game.

Despite the offense's success this season, the Tigers will have their work cut out for them against LSU at the end of December. LSU is a 4-point favorite as of now, according to OddsShark.
