Not a lot of new coaching updates today.
We know that the Board of Trustees has a scheduled conference call today at 4:30 PM to discuss parameters of an employment contract. And we know Louisiana Tech coach Sonny Dykes was “interviewing” for the job this morning (here), or perhaps even yesterday.
Another name SFN sources have confirmed as a candidate, and one being discussed on the SFN Forums, is 43-year old wunderkind Clemson Offensive Coordinator Chad Morris.
Only three years ago the Edgewood, TX native and Texas A&M alum was the head coach at Lake Travis (TX) high school, and in 2010 was the OC at Tulsa, but he has quickly become one of the hottest names in coaching because of the potent offense he runs at Clemson. And he’s been given, by some, much of the credit for Clemson’s recent success, which is why he’s the highest-paid assistant in college football ($1.3 million annually).
