CLEMSON – TigerNet has learned from a source close to the situation that Chad Morris, who agreed to become Clemson’s new offensive coordinator just a few days ago, is interviewing for the vacant head coaching position at Tulsa Tuesday night.

Morris, who was the offensive coordinator at Tulsa last season under former head coach Todd Graham, was slated to be in Clemson Tuesday morning to complete his background check and finish signing a contract reported to be in the $450,000 range.

However, Graham took the head coaching position at Pitt, and now Morris is considered to be one of two candidates for the job at Tulsa. The other candidate was former Louisville head coach Steve Kragthorpe.

However, Al Jerkins of KJRH in Tulsa posted tonight that Kragthorpe, who has already been the head coach at Tulsa, has withdrawn his name from consideration for the job.

Jerkins said "Former TU offensive coordinator Chad Morris also interviewed today. Morris had accepted an offensive coordinator position at Clemson, but has expressed interest in returning to Tulsa to get his shot at being a head coach. Kragthorpe told Channel 2 Sports he got the impression TU would hire a coach within the next few days."

Clemson had scheduled a news conference for 2 p.m. on Thursday to introduce Morris and new defensive coach Marion Hobby.
