Bowden Announces Staff Assignment changes

As expected, Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden announced some coaching staff titles and responsibility changes after practice on Saturday.

Tight ends coach Billy Napier will replace David Blackwell as the recruiting coordinator. Clemson had three consecutive top 20 recruiting years under Blackwell, a first for the program since the 1980s.

"David did an outstanding job as recruiting coordinator and he will still be actively involved in recruiting. Billy is young and single, he lives in the office, and wanted the opportunity."

Bowden also said that offensive line coach Brad Scott would now have the title of Associate Head Coach, while wide receivers coach Dabo Swinney will have increased responsibilities and has been elevated to and Assistant Head Coach position. Top Stories
