In the days after Urban Meyer was named as Ohio State’s head coach, there were very well-sourced rumors making the rounds that Meyer had targeted Clemson’s Chad Morris as his first Buckeyes offensive coordinator.
The full-court press Meyer put on for Morris’ services, however, appears to have come to an end.
In a press release issued the day after the Tigers whipped Virginia Tech in the ACC title game, the school announced that “Morris has agreed to a new contact to remain at Clemson as the football program’s offensive coordinator.” The terms of the agreement — i.e the amount of the raise Morris will receive — will be released at a later date.
““We have reached an agreement to stay at Clemson,” said Morris in a statement. “My wife Paula and our children, MacKenzie and Chandler, are very happy here. This is where we want to be. This is a place where people are passionate about football.
“I am excited about the future of this program. We have outstanding young players on this offense this year and I know we have some outstanding student-athletes who will be joining the program next year. We have a bright future and we feel we will continue to be one of the most explosive offenses in the nation.”
With Morris officially out of the equation, Meyer will likely turn his attention to LSU and Les Miles‘ offensive coordinator, Greg Studrawa.
