The story has always been that Morris promised his daughter she would graduate from the same high school she started at. If he turns down Vandy, he is at clemmers another year. This is the last BCS job on the market pretty much, and he would be inheriting a team that went to a bowl game in the best conference in the country. He also has enough cover for losses due to Vanderbilt having pretty high admission standards.

I know what you guys say about him not beating us, but I want the guy gone. He has helped clemmers win games they always lost before. I want Dabo to be left holding the bag rebuilding the offense so people can see how inept of a football coach he really is.
Why? So they fire Abo and possibly land a good coach? Why would you want that. SOS has gotten inside of Abo's head. We have them right where we want them. Why change anything?

Because there is no guarantee they land a good catch. First coach to win the acc and orange bowl for them in 30 years and they fire him after a bad season? What good coach is touching that with a ten foot pole.

I agree with trapper. I think winning the Orange Bowl was the best thing for USC. Abo will be in CU for at least another 3 years because of it.

Assistant HC is still an assistant coach. It would cost TX around 6.5 million for one year and Chad wants to be a head coach. A lot of money to fork out with the possibility of him leaving in a year or two.

I honestly think he'll be back.

I think you are right....he wants to show that he can rebuild an offense after the departure of Boyd and Watkins. He'll likely be gone after next year.

He is on nearly everyone's short list to replace Franklin at Vandy. Doesn't mean he will, but i would be surprised if he isn't coaching in Nashville by next week.

Vandy is probably going to have him pretty high on their list.

All indications from Twitter are pointing to that at least.

It is interesting to see what would happen if Texas named him an Assistant Head Coach. You could argue that is not just an "assistant coach" position. Clempson would be forced to argue against that point and hold the guy to the buyout, a guy that helped them tremendously. That could be a PR nightmare for Clempson in the coaching ranks. It is a step up from OC, that can't be argued.

Looks like he's as good as gone from the upstate, whether it be Texas or Nashville.

As we stand now, he is leading candidate in many peoples mind for the HC position at Vandy and the OC at Texas. I find it very hard to believe he would turn down both of those jobs to remain in Pickens Co. another year with no Tahj and no Sammy.

He may never be this hot of a commodity again if he stays another year at Clemson.

I couldn't imagine him going to Texas as OC if he is a leading candidate at Vandy. I wonder if he would entertain the idea of going to UAB? (I doubt it, too) Those are the only HC jobs available now.
