CUTigers.com has learned that the likelihood of tight ends coach Jack Hines returning next year as an assistant coach of the Clemson football team is "not good."
Several people associated with the football program and the athletic department told CUTigers.com earlier this week that they do not expect Hines to return next year.
At this point, it appears that Hines is exploring other opportunities.
Hines has coached several positions at Clemson since his first year on the job in 1999. He coached the secondary from 1999-2001 before the job was taken over by defensive coordinator John Lovett.
He has also recently coached the "Whip" linebackers and rovers, tight ends, as well as Clemson's kickers and punters in recent years.
Hines is also married to the former Robyn Bowden, Tommy Bowden's sister.
In his career, Hines has also coached at West Virginia (1980), Samford (1987-92), Florida State (1985-86) and Auburn (1993-98).
