Morriss could not produce a winning record in his five seasons, going 18-40 overall and 7-33 in conference games. He had a year left on his contract.
The leading candidate to replace Morriss is Baylor icon Mike Singletary, a linebacker for coach Grant Teaff and the Bears from 1977-80. Singletary was selected to 10 straight Pro Bowls during his 12 seasons with the Chicago Bears and was elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998.
Baylor (3-9, 0-8 Big 12) ended its season with a 45-14 home loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday night.
Other potential candidates are Arkansas coach Houston Nutt, who has strongly denied reports that this will be his last year with the Razorbacks, Houston coach Art Briles and Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Larry Fedora.
Singletary is in his third season as assistant head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.
