“I am so thankful to Allen ISD for the chance to work with an amazing group of student-athletes and a dedicated coaching staff,” Morris said in a statement. “Allen is a top-notch school system that prioritizes students above all else. I want to thank Superintendent Dr. Robin Bullock, the Board of Trustees, Administration, and Athletic Director Kim Garner for their unwavering support over the past year.”
When he accepted the Allen job, it was the first time he was a high school head coach since 2009. He spent the 2008 and 2009 seasons as the Lake Travis High School head coach.
Morris has been linked to several college coaching jobs. That may be his next step even though many of the college jobs have already been set.
Before accepting the Allen head coaching job, Morris was the Auburn Tigers offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2020. When Gus Malzahn was fired, the entire staff was let go.
He served as the Arkansas Razorbacks and SMU Mustangs head coach before he arrived in Alabama. At both schools, he went a combined 18-40.
Morris had one winning record in five seasons as a college head coach. He went 7-5 with the Mustangs in 2017 before departing at the end of the regular season for the Arkansas job.
He also worked for the Tulsa Golden Hurricane and the Clemson Tigers as offensive coordinators at the college level.
