— Clemson has a 32-8 overall record and 21-4 record against ACC teams in his three seasons at Clemson.
— Named 2013 AFCA National Assistant Coach-of-the-Year and one of five finalists for national offensive coordinator-of-the-year by 247Sports.com.
— Clemson’s 2013 offense averaged 507.7 yards per game and 40.2 points per game.
— Coached ACC record-breaking QB Tajh Boyd, All-American Sammy Watkins, DeAndre Hopkins and center Dalton Freeman.
— Clemson and Baylor were the only FBS schools with a 3,000-yard passer, 1,000-yard rusher and 1,000-yard receiver every year from 2011-13.
— Served as offensive coordinator and associate head coach at Tulsa in 2010 and guided the offense to among the nation’s best. That offense was a big reason Tulsa improved from 5-7 in 2009 to 10-3 in 2010.
— Won 82 percent of his games as a high school coach in Texas. He led Lake Travis High School to back-to-back, undefeated (16-0) state championship seasons.

— Morris once served as president of the Texas High School Football Coaches Association.
— While serving as an offensive coordinator at Tulsa (which he did for one lone season), he told the Tulsa World that he almost wanted to get "out of the profession" because his team wasn't performing well. He gained a confidence booster when he reached out and got advice from current Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn. The two are still friends.
— Morris has an intense obsession with Red Bull as seen in this Clemson video:
— Morris is all about going fast. Morris once complained about Boyd not going fast enough in a game.
— On every tweet, Morris uses #Tempo.
