Most of those changes are due to Kevin Steele taking over as Clemson's new defensive coordinator.
Steele, who has been seen on campus Monday, is expected to be named defensive coordinator and linebackers coach later this week.
Viewed as all but a formality, an announcement is expected immediately after all background checks have been completed by Clemson's athletic department.
Sources tell CUTigers.com those background checks were set to begin Monday.
With Steele taking over as defensive coordinator and linebackers coach, additional moves will be made on the defensive side of the ball.
For starters, David Blackwell, who used to coach Clemson's inside linebackers and has also served as the Tigers' recruiting coordinator in past years, will now coach defensive tackles, according to sources.
That means current defensive line coach Chris Rumph will now move to coach defensive ends, according to sources.
Blackwell has drawn heavy interest from several schools around the country during the past few weeks, including Iowa State potentially as a defensive coordinator, but has not interviewed anywhere else, according to sources.
With Blackwell and Rumph altering their coaching responsibilities, Clemson's new defensive staff would look like this as things stand now:
COORDINATOR - Kevin Steele
DEFENSIVE TACKLES - David Blackwell
DEFENSIVE ENDS - Chris Rumph
LINEBACKERS - Kevin Steele
SECONDARY - Charlie Harbison
Current bandit end/outside linebackers coach Ron West has been rumored to be leaning towards accepting an administrative position within the football program, but that has not yet been confirmed.
He has also been reported to be interested in other assistant coaching positions outside of Clemson as well.
CUTigers.com will have more on this story, as it becomes available.
