CUTigers.com has confirmed that Ron West has decided to turn down a lucrative offer from West Virginia and remain with the Tigers.
After visiting West Virginia on Wednesday, West had decided to accept the job as offensive line coach at West Virginia.
"I did in fact accept the position with West Virginia on
Wednesday. It is an outstanding program under Rich Rodriquez's
leadership. I have known Rich for a long time and worked with him at
Tulane and Clemson.
"But, Clemson is outstanding program as well. I think we are very
close to reaching the next level and, as a Clemson graduate, I want
to be a part of it when it happens. It came down to a decision by my
family unit, and I feel a big part of the Clemson University family.
This is home."
West contacted Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden on Thursday
afternoon and asked if he could return and Bowden said yes.
welcome Ron back, he has had a significant, positive impact on our
