Things have come full circle for Chad Morris.
After working at the collegiate level the past 11 years, Morris is heading back to the high school ranks after being named the new head coach of the Allen Eagles, a school located in Texas.
Allen is a football powerhouse at the 6A level in the state and Morris is taking over a team that has won 65 of their past 69 games. He is replacing Terry Gambill, who is retiring.
Morris was Clemson’s offensive coordinator from 2011-2014, where he was named National Assistant of the Year in 2013. He left to become the head coach at SMU, where he had enough success that Arkansas hired him away prior to the 2018 season. However, that success did not translate to the SEC and the Razorbacks fired him in 2019 after losing 18 of his first 22 games.
Last season Morris was the offensive coordinator at Auburn under Gus Malzahn.
Before coming to Clemson Morris had a 169-38 record as a head coach at the high school level.
