Sources close to the situation tell me that Yow would like to hire Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin, but as I reported last week, don't be surprised to see Vanderbilt soon announce that Franklin has reached a new agreement that will keep Franklin in Nashville.
I have learned that Clemson offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach Chad Morris
is a strong candidate to replace O'Brien. Morris is currently the highest paid assistant in college football, earning $1.3 million annually at Clemson.

Playing to get another raise IMHO. Clemson has a great history of overpaying to keep coaches.

I've said it before: the Chad system works well against bad defenses, so he would do well to stay in the ACC. I think the NC state job is a great one for him.
I also don't have time to teach you how to speak hobo.
I just don't see The Chad leaving Clemson to go to NCSU, that would be a slap in the face to your current employer... Oh Hell, I wouldn't put it past him.
As a Carolina fan, I pray Chad Morris does not get another job. After two years of facing that offense, I feel more comfortable playing Clem with Morris as the OC.
I know it looks pretty against bad defenses, but it is easier to defend than most offenses we face in the SEC. It is just smoke and mirrors against us. Outside of a great throw and a great catch later by Brown, they only had one decent drive.
If you really give it some thought and watch the last two games, why do any Carolina fans want him gone from Clemson?

Going from a coordinater to a head coach is not a slap in the face to anyone. It is a move up in his profession. Now if he left to be coordinator there that would be a different story.
Its bad enough they call him "The Chad" on Tigernet can we please stop calling him that here?!?! Hes an offensive genius against high schools and DII teams. If he was a coach in the SEC his nickname would change to "The Hanging Chad"
I think we call him "The Chad" on here as poking fun of him / them. Im pretty sure of it.
Cant see how that is a slap in the face at all. It's a was coaching job.
That said, I hope he stays.
Why "The Hanging Chad"?
The main reason I want him to stay in the upstate is so abo stays around longer. If chad leaves they will also start losing to sorry acc teams. Cheerleader head coach and a sorry defense won't win very many low scoring ball games. I think abo is out within 2 years of chad leaving. Especially after graduating a class of seniors that never beat Carolina.
I think "the chub" has a nice ring to it.
I read recently that there are a bunch of h/s coaches in Tx just like the Chad. If he leaves, abo will go find one of them to keep this offense going, but he won't have to pay as much this time.
I'm still waiting for him to implement the full playbook before I get really scared. What has he installed? About 60%? LOL
Whoa, whoa, whoa man... I don't like him any more than you do, but that's no reason to HANG the guy.
Major overreaction, geez!
I'll be yo huckleberry...
