Fan access to Frank Howard Field will be delayed (approximately three minutes) until the visiting team and coaching staff have departed.
"We had an unfortunate incident involving a Clemson fan and NC
State Head Coach Tom O'Brien immediately after the game last Saturday,"
said Clemson Police Chief Johnson Link.
"After we saw the video tape, it was apparent that we needed to review our
postgame field access. It was a situation that could have escalated into
something larger. We appreciate the way NC State Coach Tom O'Brien has
handled the matter."
The policy will not detract from a proud Clemson tradition. Fans
will still be allowed to gather at the Tiger Paw at midfield with Clemson
players for the playing of the alma mater, and be allowed to interact with
Clemson players for a short period of time after the game. Fans may remain
on the field for 30 minutes, the same period of time as in the past.
"It is important that fans cooperate." said Link. "While we appreciate
the long standing tradition of Gathering at the Paw, it is important that
people recognize that safety and security of all are paramount."
