Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris will be SMU’s new football coach, a person familiar with the school’s decision told the Associated Press on Sunday.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school had a news conference planned Monday to introduce the new head coach.

The Mustangs (0-11) have one game left in a dreadful season, during which coach June Jones, a former coach at Hawaii, stepped down after two games. They’ve been outscored 441-97 and end the season Saturday at Connecticut.

The 45-year-old Morris is a Texas native and longtime high school coach in the state. He has been Clemson’s offensive coordinator since 2011 and is one of the highest-paid assistants in college football, making $1.3 million per season.
