Chad Morris to reportedly interview for Auburn head coaching job

John Reed-US PRESSWIRE

The Tigers will interview another Tiger for its head coach vacancy.

The Auburn Tigers will interview Clemson Tigers offensive coordinator Chad Morris for their vacant head coach position, according to AuburnUndercover.com.

Auburn fired coach Gene Chizik on Nov. 25 after leading the team to a 3-9 overall record. The Tigers were 0-8 in the Southeastern Conference, prompting a change for a team that won the BCS National Championship just two years ago with Cam Newton at quarterback.

Morris has been Clemson's offensive coordinator for the last two seasons. He was also the O.C. at Tulsa for a year before his stint at Clemson. He was a high school football coach in Texas for 16 years, according to NBC Sports' College Football Talk.

Morris interviewed for the North Carolina State head coach job last week.

Auburn is also reportedly interested in Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart and TCU head coach Gary Patterson, according to TigerNet.com.

Bovada has betting lines open for Auburn's head coaching position. Morris is set at 15/4, while Bobby Petrino is the favorite at 7/4.
