SMU Found their man

The SMU Mustangs named their next head football coach this week, they signed Clemson Offensive coordinator Chad Morris their next head coach. While there will always be excitement about a new coach coming into town and overturn the staff, there is reason for excitement at SMU with this hire. Morris is known around the state of Texas and has a history with high school coaches from his time as the head coach at Lake Travis.

Fans shouldn’t expect Morris to come in and win immediately, but it is safe to say he will start building this program with local talent and should be able to have SMU back to their levels under June Jones. One knock on Jones was his reluctance to really heavily recruit the local kids, which probably helped his downfall. It is going to be a new start for the Mustangs, and while things won’t be great on day one, Morris can build this program in his vision and turn it into a competitive program.

The only real question is going to be how long will Morris be here? If he starts winning, he could draw the attention of some bigger programs. If that day does happen to come, he will probably leave the program in better shape than he found it. Things are looking up for SMU with this hire.

SMU Coaching Candidates part 4

As I have previously discussed, there are a lot of candidates I am talking about for the vacant SMU coaching position. Some make sense, and some are questionable, but I feel every name will be one which is considered within the program. SMU may want to reach out and lure a “Big Fish” but they would be better to try and lure in a younger coach who needs a place to “cut his teeth”.
