Former head coach Chad Morris has accepted a new position back in college football.

As announced on Monday afternoon,

The former SMU and Arkansas coach will join the University of South Florida as a senior offensive analyst.

Morris and USF head coach Jeff Scott both coached Dabo Swinney's staff at Clemson from 2011 to 2014.

According to the school's statement, Scott cited his past relationship in welcoming Morris to the program.

“Chad and I have a great relationship and have had great success working together for four seasons at Clemson under coach Swinney,” Scott said.

“We are very excited to welcome Chad to South Florida and I look forward to working with his offensive coordinator, Travis Trickett,

Our returning staff members and I as we commit a fast-paced and exciting crime."

After going 14-22 at SMU from 2015 to 2017, Morris went 4-18 with the Razorbacks for the next two seasons.

Gus Malzahn appointed Morris as their offensive coordinator when Auburn became head coach in 2019,

But both were fired the following year.

Morris was the head coach at Allen High School in Texas last year.

The USF won the Birmingham Bowl in 2016 and 2017, going 21-4 in those two seasons. Although,

The Bulls have only recorded three wins in Scott's two years as head coach.

Realizing Scott's vision of "exciting crime" will require massive steps.

After scoring just six passing touchdowns last season.
