Former Arkansas head coach Chad Morris has been hired to as Auburn's new offensive coordinator under head coach Gus Malzahn.

Morris, who is close friends with Malzahn, will replace Kenny Dillingham, who left Auburn to be the offensive coordinator at Florida State. Per AuburnTigers.com:

A Dallas, Texas, native, Morris served as head coach at Arkansas (2018-19) and SMU (2015-17) after four record-breaking seasons as offensive coordinator at Clemson (2011-14). A legendary high school coach in the state of Texas for 16 years from 1994-2009, Morris broke into the college game as associate head coach and offensive coordinator at Tulsa in 2010.

"I'm super excited to have Chad Morris join our staff at Auburn. He's a tremendous offensive mind who has had success with several top-ranked offenses during his time in the college ranks. I've known Chad for almost 20 years and he is a tireless worker and a perfectionist. He is a great addition to our program and I look forward to him helping Auburn win championships!"

The QBKilla2.0 (Malzahn) hires QBKilla3.0 (Aggy Chad. SIX QBs this year started lmfao) . I bet QBKillaOG (the Right Reverend Houston Dale Nutt) is somewhere very pleased.

He did. He's just not a head coach. His talent is crafting offenses.It's a Peter Principle thing. Or as a friend of mine put it, "Some guys are Kirk and belong in the center chair, and some guys are Spock, and are destined to be the #2 guy".
