New SMU head football coach Chad Morris was in Tyler Monday night for a Mustang Club event held at Fresh-By Brookshires.

The Edgewood native has climbed the coaching ladder in recent years.

Just six years ago, the East Texan was a state championship football coach at Lake Travis High School.   After assistant coaching stops at Tulsa and Clemson, Morris is now the head coach a major division one program.   He hopes to inspire other Texas high school coaches to dream big.

"Being as biased as I am, the best in the country are Texas high school coaches," said Morris.  "I'm very proud of saying I'm a Texas high school coach. There's a lot of high school coaches in this state right now that could do exactly what I'm doing. They know a lot of ball. I'm excited to be one of them and in a platform that I can represent the high school coaches association."

Morris began as a head coach in 1994 at Eustace High School.
