yes, it would be a tough job at Clemson to be consistently a "final 4" type team because of the competition. However, if the Administrations expectations are inline with the competition, then it should be a relatively easy job. I don't think it would to be too much to ask to consistently finish in the top 8 of the conference and make a run in the NCAA every now and then.

The Admin at Clemson can no more expect and hold a coach to being at the level of Duke, UNC, Cuse etc than the Admin at Duke can expect and hold a football coach to being at the of Clemson, FSU, Miami etc. If those expectations are in line with reality, then a coach can make a great living, get some great wins and build Clemson to a solid contender. Sounds like a good job to me. Besides, not everybody wants to be CEO of Microsoft. Some are perfectly happy running their own 100 person company.
