Texas Tech tabs former QB Kliff Kingsbury as head coach, not Morris

Chad Morris

It appears that Chad Morris will be the offensive coordinator at Clemson for at least a little bit longer, as Texas Tech has named Texas A&M offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury as head coach over Morris. 

Kingsbury was the offensive coordinator for the Aggies for only a season after coming as part of Kevin Sumlin’s coaching staff from Houston.  He used the up-tempo style he ran at Texas Tech and Texas A&M to coach Johnny Manziel to the Heisman Trophy, and record-setting QB Case Keenum at Houston.  At the age of 33, Kingsbury becomes one of the youngest coaches at the major Division I level.

The job as head man for the Red Raiders came open after former head coach Tommy Tuberville unexpectedly bolted for Cincinnati. As quarterback for Texas Tech from 1998-2002, Kingsbury threw for 95 touchdowns and broke 17 NCAA records.

    Exactly how many interviews has Morris had with different schools? It seems to me if he was such the offensive guru that clemmers proclaim, someone would have hired him.

  2. Hey Chad, how’s it feel to know your boss truly could care less if you show up or not. It’s not like you were hired to come in and implement your offense because as it was so beautifully put, “It’s not Chad Morris’ offense, it’s clempson’s offense.” Come to think of it, why are you even there if you’re so unneeded? Sounds like daybo thinks any Joe Schmo can run your O.

  3. Morris is in play at A&M as OC. Manziel is tweeting his preference for him. Morris back to CU isn’t quite settled yet.
