2012 Orange Bowl: Clemson Offensive Coordinator Chad Morris Expresses Admiration For WVU's Dana Holgorsen

In advance of Clemson's matchup against West Virginia in the Orange Bowl, Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris has kind words for WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen.

"I know he's a very sharp-minded football coach on the cutting edge, and that's always great to see, how he grows his offense. They definitely have those guys going. As a high school coach in state of Texas, that is one of the guys that you always looked at, and again, always on the cutting edge of things."

Morris was a high-school coach in Texas when Holgorsen was coaching for Texas Tech and Houston, so the two coaches have been swimming in similar waters for some time.

Of course, Morris has a reputation himself. His Clemson offense scored 33.6 points per game this year, racking up big points totals against schools like Virginia Tech and Florida State. That led to rumors that he might join forces with Urban Meyer at Ohio State. Morris ultimately signed a six-year, $7.8-million extension with Clemson that will earn him more money than some head coaches of major programs make.
