Former Arkansas coach Chad Morris has resigned as coach at Allen (Texas) High School after just one season, the school announced on Friday. Morris' departure was first reported by Dave Campbell's Texas Football. The Allen High School ISD confirmed that Morris has been presented with the opportunity to return to the college football ranks.
"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."
Morris' hiring was one of the flashiest high school hires in recent memory at the alma mater of stars like Kyler Murray, Greg Little, Jalen Guyton and others. The Texas native ranks among the most beloved Texas high school coaches of all time after leading two different high school programs to a combined three state championships. Notably, Morris won back-to-back state championships at Austin-based Lake Travis with heralded quarterback Garrett Gilbert in 2008 and 2009. One year later, he took the offensive coordinator job at Tulsa.
