Could Chad Morris Join Urban Meyer's Ohio State Staff? Dabo Swinney Denies Contact

Clemson Tigers offensive coordinator Chad Morris will be one of the nation's hottest properties during this year's coaching do-si-do. In one year, Clemson's offense has improved from a sluggish No 88 in the country to a lightnin' quick No. 29. Much of that is due to Sammy Watkins, you say? In C.J. Spiller's senior year, Clemson ranked No. 74, so there you go.

Urban Meyer's hiring at Ohio State means it's time to buzz about Morris in Columbus, as the two have been tight since Utah coach Meyer met with high school coach Morris in 2003. The offense they could put together with Braxton Miller at quarterback -- it tantalizes the mind.

For what it's worth, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has denied the rumor, as has Morris himself.
