CLEMSON — Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris told the Post and Courier tonight that he will not interview for the South Florida coaching job this weekend, refuting multiple reports that linked him to the job today.
ESPN.com and the Austin-American Statesman reported Morris would interview for the position this weekend.
Morris told the Post and Courier he’ll be in his West Zone office on Friday preparing for LSU and he’ll be at Clemson’s first bowl practice Saturday. He’s traveling to watch former Tiger Dwayne Allen play with the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
Said Morris of the rumors and reports: “Wow, crazy.”
Morris has also been linked to the N.C. State and Auburn coaching vacancies this offseason.
Morris led Clemson to a ranking of eighth overall in total offense this fall, averaging 518 yards per game.
Morris is the nation’s highest-paid assistant, earning $1.3 million per year at Clemson.
