It's official. Chad Morris, despite overtures from Urban Meyer and Ohio State, is no longer a candidate for the offensive coordinator job. Morris signed an incredible contract with Clemson, worth $1.3 million annually for six years. According to The Post and Courier, it's a record for an ACC assistant coach.
After only one season at Clemson, Morris cashed in, and it's at least partially due to Urban Meyer. If Meyer is not hired as Ohio State's head coach, and does not have Ohio State's pocketbook to make overtures with, Morris is probably a lot cheaper for Clemson to retain.
The hunt for Greg Studrawa now takes on greater importance.
