Clemson’s Chad Morris reportedly in the NCSU mix as well

It was reported Tuesday that North Carolina State would interview Louisiana Tech head coach Sonny Dykes for its vacancy.

As it turns out, Dykes wasn’t individual on the Wolfpack’s to-do list that day. Reportedly.

According to, Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris interviewed for the NCSU job Wednesday as well. It’s believed, however, that Dykes, given his experience as a head coach, is the front-runner for a position that could be filled as early as this weekend.

Morris has spent the past two seasons running Clemson’s high-octane offense after spending one season as Tulsa’s coordinator. Those are his only three years of experience at the collegiate level as he had spent the previous 16 years as a head coach at a handful of Texas high schools.

After a brief flirtation with Ohio State’s Urban Meyer last December, Morris was given anew six-year contract that at $1.3 million annually made him the highest-paid assistant in the country.
