When Morris Watts accepted the quarterbacks / passing game coordinator job at Central Michigan, it marked the 15th different coaching job for Watts.
Watts served as the offensive coordinator at Miami (OH) last season and was expected to join Mike Haywood’s staff at Pitt, but then briefly found himself out of a job when Haywood was dismissed.
Central Michigan head coach Dan Enos said, "When we had a chance to hire him, I was really excited about it from a personal and a professional level. He is a great resource for us with his 48 years of coaching that reaches out to more than just offense or quarterbacks, it reaches out to everything about the program. He has coached at every level and knows what it takes to be successful."
Watts will be in his 48th season of coaching this year.
Enos said, "Morris is the ultimate professional and he even calls me 'coach' now. That is kind of strange for me because I am used to him calling me 'Dan' or 'Danny.' He has been mentoring me for years now and helping me become a football coach. We have respect for each other and he isn't afraid to offer his opinion and isn't afraid to hear other's opinions."
Watts has now coached at Drake, Louisville, Indiana, Kansas, LSU, Birmingham Stallions, Michigan State, Tampa Bay Bucs, Michigan State, LSU, Mississippi State, Broken Arrow HS, Miami (OH), and Central Michigan.
