10:59 AM ET 01.12 | Clemson coach Dabo Swinney expects all his staff back for next season, including offensive coordin'ator Chad Morris. Morris' name has come up at seemingly every coaching vacancy, including the one currently open at Vanderbilt with James Franklin's departure to Penn State. Swinney said a lot of the rumors that swirl around Morris are overblown. Morris is college football's highest paid assistant at $1.3 million a year. While Morris is free contractually to leave for a head coaching position, he would owe the school $5.2 million - $1.3 million for the four seasons left on his deal - if he moved on for another offensive coorindator position.

He aint leaving for an OC position..

But he will dammm sure leave to be HC at Vandy.. I think that his system would be a good fit there...

Now that seems like a reasonable and fair buyout--lateral move and you pay up. Move to a higher position and no buyout.

Agreed. Never stand in the way of another man's opportunities to move up in this world. Just ain't right.

dabo goes back to average HC when morris leaves. He's also the answer to a trivia question....or questions.....who was his QB when he lead his high school team to back to back 5A 16-0 state championships..... (hint: he just finished his career at SMU)
