Reports put Morris in Tulsa mix
CLEMSON -- Clemson is scheduled to introduce Chad Morris as its new offensive coordinator at 2 p.m. Thursday, but there are reports putting into question whether Morris will ever call an offensive play for the Tigers.
While a source said there was no reason, yet, to believe Morris would not replace Billy Napier at Clemson, several reports Tuesday stated Morris was to interview for the open Tulsa head coaching position Tuesday night.
Tulsa coach Todd Graham accepted the head coaching position at Pittsburgh on Monday, creating the vacancy.
While Morris has just one year of college experience, he led Tulsa to the fifth-ranking FBS offense last season. Morris agreed to a deal with Clemson on Sunday but is not believed to have signed his contract nor completed a background check.
If Morris surprises Clemson and becomes the Tulsa head coach, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney could turn to TCU offensive coordinator Justin Fuente, who also interviewed for the position.
