CLEMSON — Clemson Offensive Coordinator Chad Morris has been named the FBS National Assistant Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association. Morris is the first Clemson assistant football coach to win a national coach of the year honor.
Each year, staff representatives from NCAA and NAIA football-playing schools are asked to nominate an assistant for consideration. From those nominations, a winner is selected by the AFCA Public Relations Committee.
Morris was selected from a finalist group that also included Bobby Williams of Alabama and Josh Heupel of Oklahoma.
