Morrissey came to Marshall after head coach Charles Huff was hired in 2021. Among many other stints, Morrissey served one season as an offensive line assistant at Austin Peay in 2019 and as an assistant at Mississippi State in 2018.

Marshall (2-0), coming off a win at Notre Dame, plays at Bowling Green (0-2) on Saturday.
