Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris declined to confirm reports he will become the next head coach at Clemson. 

"Unreal, everyone thinks they know," Morris said in a text message to The Clemson Insider. "Sorry completely focused on [South Carolina]."

Multiple reports Thursday said Morris had agreed to join SMU. Morris has coached at Clemson since 2011 and is the nation's highest-paid assistant coach, with an annual salary of $1.3 million.
