Hands off Buckeyes: Clemson inks OC to new deal

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.

    I’m glad urban didn’t get his first choice! I would never coach for that man! He left Florida in shambles, and when he realized it he ran away and used his health as an excuse. He is a coward and this is coming from a Florida state fan!!

    I would rather have the LSU OC anyway. That is addition by subtraction it makes the Buckeyes better and weakens another perenial powerhouse.

    How much are the players going to make under Meyers?
    The bucks have been cheating since good old Woody left.

    It isn’t good coaching the teacher Tressel cheated and lied and knew the players were getting paid. They shut up and ruined Maurice Claurette who told the truth

    Also 40 million to coach a team. Meyers will get sick and ruin OSU like did to Florida What a shame a great program going down the toilet
