Fired Baylor Coach Guy Morriss Turns Down Ky. High School Offer

By  | 

DANVILLE, KY -- Fired Baylor football coach Guy Morriss today declined an offer to become head coach at a high school near
Lexington, Kentucky.

Morriss, who had a 9-14 record at Kentucky during the 2001 and
'02 seasons, was offered the vacant coaching job at Boyle County
High School. That's about 30 miles south of Lexington.

Morriss owns a farm in the area and was considering a return to
Kentucky.

But Boyle County athletics director Jim Spears says Morriss says
it just wasn't the right time in his life to make this move.

Morriss in November was fired after five seasons at Baylor,
where he had a record of 18-40.
