Chad Morris is certainly a hot coordinator, and, as Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney accurately notes, his name has been linked to quite a few of the openings in college football this off-season. Morris is a highly paid play-drawerupper (technical term) in a good spot though, so he has the luxury of picking and choosing which gig is right for him. That said, it hasn’t stopped Morris from being mentioned any time a new carousel rider hops on or off.

Which is what makes this Swinney quote even more intriguing. Why stop at college football jobs? If his name comes up for every (every!) job, the possibilities are endless here. Which other jobs has Chad Morris been a candidate for?

• Penn State

• Wake Forest

• Western Kentucky

• Louisville

• FAU

• Texas

• Texas search committee

• Texas Roadhouse CEO

• XO, Airship McGuillicutty

• Member of the Hollywood Foreign Press

• Teacher

• Alabama (Saban’s just not getting it done pawwwlllll)

• Role of Mary Anne in The Baby-sitters Club reboot

• Dabo Swinney’s imaginary friend

• Apple Store Genius Bar

Writer nope that’s an awful job

• Food Stylist, Applebee’s

• One of those guys who made lots of money working from home. Everyone thought that sign on the telephone pole next to Church’s wasn’t real, but it is, but don’t take my word for it

• Rocket scientist

• Voice actor on such shows as Bubble Guppies and Sanjay and Craig

• Car mechanic

• Officer, Night’s Watch

• Guardian and protector, Sally Reynolds’ dolls and teddy bear, his name is Jeff

• An accountant at Ernst and Young because tax season is right here, don’t forget to file your individual tax return by April 15

• Boise State (not the football job, the job of actually being Boise State; it’s going to work, we promise, and the benefits are great!)

The possibilities are endless. Someday Chad Morris will find a job that is right for him, but until then running a pretty good offense in the ACC isn’t all that bad.

This article is waste of bandwidth.

Chad Morris needs to be the Texas OC.  He's a perfect fit.  And he'll get more notice there.  He's wasting his life at Clemson (where is that, anyway?)

@BobRayTalbot  Some waste...you noticed his achievements enough to suggest he be at Texas. The fact is he IS the reason Clemson has had success the last 3-4 years...not cheerleader Dabo. 


That said, a successful OC/DC does not always translate into a successful Head Coach.
