Paul Hogan, 27, was hired last Wednesday as a graduate assistant and will serve as the assistant offensive line coach, working specifically with the center and guards.
Hogan replaces Kyle Young, who is nearing completion of his doctorate and has taken a job in administration in hopes of one day becoming an athletic director.
Hogan comes to Clemson after spending the last three years as a graduate assistant at Alabama, which is where he played football and graduated from in 2000.
As a four-year letterman with the Crimson Tide football team, Hogan was a two-time All-SEC center. He started 44 of his 45 career games and also earned Academic All-SEC honors two years.
He was also team captain as a senior.
This will be the 10th offensive scheme he's had to learn in 10 years and will be with his fifth head coach since 2001.
"I'm used to learning on the go and learning new offenses," Hogan said. "But I'm really looking forward to working with and learning from (offensive line) Coach (Brad) Scott."
