Scott Talks To N.C. State

Three independent sources, including two at N.C. State, have confirmed that Clemson offensive line coach Brad Scott is a candidate and has had discussions with Wolfpack officials about being their new offensive coordinator.

One of the sources at N.C. State said that Scott was "definitely in the pecking order" of top candidates, but wasn't sure how high.

Scott was the offensive coordinator at Florida State at the same time that current N.C. State head coach Chuck Amato served as the assistant head coach for the Seminoles.

Scott also served as Clemson's offensive cooridnator before Mike O'Cain took over the job in 2004.

This news coincides with LSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher interviewing for the same position in Raleigh on Friday and withdrawing his name from consideration on Saturday to stay with the new coaching staff at LSU, sources said.

Also, new Clemson defensive coordinator Vic Koenning said he spoke with linebackers coach David Blackwell Saturday, but that the two did not discuss whether or not Blackwell plans to return to the Tigers.

Blackwell and his wife are currently in Louisville, Ky., at the annual coaches convention.

Koenning said that he's received "tons of calls" from coaches all over the country wanting a job should Blackwell decide to leave. One option for Blackwell is Southern California, where a source inside the athletic department told CUTigers.com that Blackwell has a job waiting for him if he wants it.

Koenning added that he has no idea if Blackwell will remain in Clemson, but added that he hopes that he does.
