CLEMSON — In the last 30 minutes, rumors have circulated that Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris had been offered the head coaching job at Texas Tech.

Morris says those rumors are false. He says he has not been offered the job at Texas Tech and has not even interviewed for the job.

Early on Monday, Morris was rumored to be interviewing with Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt today. But that interview never happened.

As of 6:30 p.m., Morris was meeting with his offensive staff at Clemson as they are game planning for the 13th-ranked Tigers New Year’s Eve game against No. 7 LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

Morris’ name has been at the center of the Texas Tech search ever since Tommy Tuberville resigned and took the Cincinnati job on Saturday.
