Washington State inside receivers coach Eric Morris is headed back to his alma mater.
Morris, who played receiver for WSU coach Mike Leach at Texas Tech from 2005-08, has accepted a position on the staff of new TTU coach Kliff Kingsbury. His exact role is unclear.
Morris, 27, was hired as part of Leach’s first staff at WSU after serving as a quality control and graduate assistant at Houston for two seasons. He is a native of Shallowater, Texas.
Morris recruited the Dallas Fort-Worth and Inland Empire (Calif.) areas for the Cougars, and was also responsible for recruiting quarterbacks. He was the primary recruiter of quarterback Tyler Bruggman, a 4-star prospect from Phoenix who orally committed to WSU during the summer.
Jeff Choate, WSU’s linebackers coach, has been linked to the defensive coordinator job at UTEP.
