told Dabo Swinney that he "doesn't think he can do it [play football] anymore."

“I had a talk with Gif on Friday and his knee is just too painful. It has been a frustrating year for him because he just can’t perform at the level he is accustomed to.

“What a great young man. Gif Timothy never complained and he gave every ounce he had to be the best he can be. He will stay on with us as a student coach and will be a good example to the young offensive linemen we have on this team.”

Timothy started six games this year and played in nine for a total of 263 plays. For his career he started 17 games and played in 28 for a total of 1128 snaps.
