Morris arrives in Clemson

CUTigers has learned new Clemson's offensive coordinator is in town after making the trip from Tulsa earlier this morning.

Moments ago CUTigers learned Chad Morris has arrived in the Clemson area to begin work with his new job as the Tigers' offensive coordinator.

He confirmed to CUTigers shortly after 11:50 AM he had in fact already flown in earlier this morning and was in the Clemson area.

Morris, who reportedly interviewed for the Tulsa head coaching job yesterday, told CUTigers Tuesday evening he would be in Clemson Wednesday.

He also maintained that despite reports out there indicating he could be the leading candidate to replace former Tulsa head coach Todd Graham, who went to Pittsburgh, he was still the "offensive coordinator at Clemson."

Morris became a coveted college coach after serving as Tulsa's offensive coordinator in 2010 and guided that offense to among the best in the nation.

The Golden Hurricane ranked 13th in the nation in passing offense with 288.7 yards per game and 15th in rushing offense with 216.9 yards per game. Their 505.6 total offense yards per game ranked fifth best in the nation. Tulsa was the only school in the nation to rank in the top 15 in the nation in both rushing offense and passing offense.

Tulsa also averaged more than 41 points per game as well.

Prior to coming to Tulsa, Morris had an 82 percent winning percentage as a high school coach in the state of Texas. He led Lake Travis High School to back to back undefeated 16-0 State Championship seasons. He won three state titles overall and played in six state championship games in his high school career.

Talking with CUTigers Monday, Morris perhaps summed up his expectations in Tigertown best by simply saying, "It's going to be electric. It's going to be fast-paced. Our goal is to take our best athletes and match them up with their lesser athletes. We'll do it with formations, movement and shifting at a rapid pace.

"Clemson fans are going to be at the edge of their seat the entire time." Top Stories
