Elliott was last at Furman as the wide receivers coach.
The James Island, S.C., native was a four-year letterman as a wide receiver at Clemson (2000-03), where he majored in industrial engineering and earned the Atlantic Coast Conference's Weaver-James-Corrigan Post Graduate Scholarship.
He worked two years for Michelin-North America before accepting his first coaching assignment as wide receivers coach at South Carolina State in 2006.
Elliott will replace former running backs coach Andre Powell, who was let go two days after the bowl game on Jan. 2.
A native of James Island, S.C., Elliott attended Air Force Prep for one year before turning down an appointment to the Air Force Academy to enroll at Clemson in January of 1999. After joining the Tiger program, he saw action as a member of special teams and wide receiver, lettering all four years.
In 2003 he was selected team captain, a rare accomplishment for a former walk-on.
As a senior he caught 23 passes for 286 yards and a touchdown in helping Clemson to a 9-4 record that included a 27-14 Peach Bowl victory over sixth-ranked Tennessee.
