Chad Morris Gets Clemson Extension, Meaning No Ohio State

Ohio St. Buckeyes target Chad Morris picked up a contract extension from the Clemson Tigers Sunday, sending Urban Meyer elsewhere in his search for a new Buckeyes offensive coordinator. And please, someone, help him find an OC, so he doesn't have to run the entire offense himself.

"I am excited about the future of this program," Morris said in a statement. "We have outstanding young players on this offense this year and I know we have some outstanding student-athletes who will be joining the program next year. We have a bright future and we feel we will continue to be one of the most explosive offenses in the nation."

Morris will turn to the task of prepping Clemson for its Orange Bowl against West Virginia.

Chad Morris Contacted By Other Schools, Ohio State Reportedly One

Clemson Tigers offensive coordinator Chad Morris was bound to be a popular coaching target after turning one of the nation's lesser offenses into the key unit for a BCS conference champion. The North Carolina Tar Heels head coaching spot, among others, would make sense as a potential ambition for Morris. He admits he's been contacted:

Travis Sawchik@travis_sawchik Chad Morris: "I am committed to Clemson. It is crazy right now. It's the time of year....Have there been people who have contacted me? Yes."    

And Tiger Illustrated, Rivals' Clemson side, reported that the Ohio St. Buckeyes were one of those schools. 

Tigerillustrated.com@TIinClemson BREAKING NEWS: Ohio State has now contacted Chad Morris, a source toldTigerillustrated.com Sunday. For further details, check out TI now    

Urban Meyer had previously been reported elsewhere as being interested in bringing Morris aboard as his Ohio State offensive coordinator.

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.

Travis Sawchik@travis_sawchik Swinney on Morris-Urban Meyer rumors "No one has called me..Chad loves Clemson and is committed...don't see him leaving unless for HC job"
