I'm pleased to present today's Historic Clemson Photo, submitted by long time TigerNet member Mintaka®.

These historic posts will each have a sponsor with a very brief video message. After playing, the update and photos will replace the video.

Thank you very much, and enjoy! --Crump and B-Meist

At the end of the 1972 football season, after a 4-7 record, Hootie Ingram calls it quits. In his three years as head coach, his overall record was 12-21. In today's photo we see Hootie (left), R.C. Edwards (center) and Hootie's replacement, Red Parker (right) in a press conference announcing the coaching change. Interestingly, it seemed like a big event at the time, but these days it's just a footnote in history.
