Allen Eagles Head Football Coach Chad Morris Announces Departure

Allen ISD Begins Search for Replacement

 

Chad Morris announced today that he is stepping down as head football coach of the Allen Eagles. Coach Morris has an opportunity to return to college football.

“I am so thankful to Allen ISD for the chance to work with an amazing group of student-athletes and a dedicated coaching staff,” said Morris. “Allen is a top-notch school system that prioritizes students above all else. I want to thank Superintendent Dr. Robin Bullock, the Board of Trustees, Administration, and Athletic Director Kim Garner for their unwavering support over the past year.”

Morris joined the Allen Eagles football program in the Spring of 2021, and he led the team to an 11-3 record and an appearance in the quarterfinals of the UIL Texas Playoffs.

“I want to thank Coach Morris for the passion he brought to the Allen Eagles football program,” said Dr. Bullock. “Coach Morris has an amazing ability to connect with student-athletes on a personal level, and I wish him all the best in his return to college football.”

The Allen ISD Athletics Department will immediately begin searching for candidates to fill the head coach position.  

“The chance to serve as a head coach in Allen is a premier opportunity throughout the state of Texas,” said Kim Garner. “Coach Morris did an outstanding job of leading the Allen football team this past year and pouring his heart and soul into our student-athletes and program. Now, our attention turns to finding a coach who will continue to build upon our winning tradition, instill a positive family culture, and inspire our young athletes to find success on the field and in the classroom.”
