Clemson fans claim Morris is on the list of every team that needs a HC, the fact is (for whatever the reason) their web sites do not even list him as one! There has to be something that the colleges see in him that we don't. He should be a good choice for some of the schools looking to replace a HC, but he has not been interviewed for any of them. Some say he is happy at Clemson, well the truth is probably that he is very well paid there and he does not want to rock the boat UNTIL he has a chance to leave. We are no different, we would certainly not leave a well paying job until we had something better to leave for. Makes me wonder just why nobody wants him! Does he have bad breath or something?

He has it made where he is. If and when he takes on the role of a head coach, then the pressure comes!!

I've thought about Chad Morris and he wants to be a HC but he is waiting for the right opportunity. I would rather take a program over where the coach was fired because then you aren't living up to expectation at a place like Vanderbilt where winning will not be easy and their recruiting class is going up in flames (generally doesnt get that bad at most schools where the coach leaves).

He is paid $1.3 million per year which makes him a rich man. If he was getting the poor mans $300k per year than he would have bolted for a HC position somewhere last year or this year.

I would tend to agree, but also at Vandy, you can hang on for a long, long time while losing as well, so it does have some sort of job security. Nobody is going to expect Vandy to win 10 game a season- ever. If you can just get up to 9 wins per year, you're in the running for Penn State, Texas, etc. Try winning 9 games a season at any other SEC college but Kentucky and get back to me on how many major colleges are calling you for an upgrade.

** We have confirmed with sources that the hire will come from the college ranks despite the emergence of some names from the NFL.
Further, we are hearing that Chad Morris is gaining significant traction. We have felt and have been told all along that Derek Mason was the name to beat. With a late push in favor of Morris, we believe that this decision could go either way at this point.
***Based on the information we've received, we are hearing that a decision could come as early as tomorrow. No definitive timeframe is in place but a Friday announcement looks to be likely at this point.

I'm willing to bet it's going to go to Mason instead of Morris.

Seems very odd that nobody seems to want Morris. He must do very very poorly in his interviews.

Said it was from a Vandy booster he works with. Easy six figure booster.

Said he hasn't accepted but is the pick whatever that info is worth.

I'd be surprised if they choose him over Mason.

Morris has a lot of name recognition right now though.

Well, you're either going to have instant credibility or sink below whatever low threshold we typically reserve for Clemson athletic supporters. Guess we'll know which it is by this weekend.

I doubt it'll change anything either way. It's clear he's saying to take his info with a grain of salt. It's not like some people on here who claim to drop info like it's the gospel.

Thank you. I don't think my info is gonna be on espn or yahoo sports anytime soon.

If Morris was to turn it down that isn't going to be the news story anyway. I wonder if that would even come out though.. It's obvious by the article that Morris is who they are leaning towards right now but flip a coin I guess.

If he turns it down, I just dont get it. What are they smoking up there to make him stay and can it travel east?

Exactly.....calling plays is only a very small part of being a HC.

Ever seen Morris do a live interview? Check him out on YouTube. He always looks uncomfortable in front of the camera and mumbles a lot. I'd imagine his interviews are similar.
