Dabo Swinney Comments On Possibility Of Clemson's Former OC Chad Morris Taking South Carolina Job

For four years, Chad Morris coached under Dabo Swinney at Clemson, where he was the offensive coordinator from 2011-14. 

Could he soon be the coach of Swinney's biggest rival? Maybe. 

Morris, now the head coach of SMU, is seen by some as a serious candidate for the South Carolina opening. Swinney commented on that possibility tonight.

Here's the full quote, from The Post and Courier.

“I think he’s got a great job. You’d have to ask Chad (about) that,” Morris’ former boss, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney, said after Wednesday’s practice. “I think he’s a great coach, obviously, and he’s focused on doing a great job where he’s at. If there’s another job out there he’s interested in, that’s up to him.”

Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart is seen as the favorite to land the South Carolina job, per Bovada.
