"All of us in the Atlantic Coast Conference are deeply saddened by the news that Jim Phillips, the longtime 'Voice of the Tigers,' passed away last evening."

"Having broadcast 401 Clemson football games and over 2,000 Clemson athletic events in his career, Jim's voice was synonymous with Tiger athletics. Jim Phillips has been a landmark in the Atlantic Coast Conference for the past 36 years and his dedication to Clemson University is one of the primary reasons for the school's enduring popularity among the people of South Carolina and fans of the ACC."

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Ruth and the entire Phillips family. We have all lost a very good friend."
