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.
