Tigers co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott was named a semifinalist for the Broyles Award on Tuesday, which is given to the nation's top assistant.
Clemson ranks in the top-10 in scoring (5th; 44.7 PPG) and total offense (8th; 520.5 YPG), as well as red zone TD percentage (6th; 76.9) and red zone offense (8th; 92.3).
Scott came onto the staff as a full-time assistant when Clemson coach Dabo Swinney was promoted to head coach in 2008.
He served as Clemson's recruiting coordinator in addition to receiver coach duties up until 2014, when he took over co-offensive coordinator duties. He was named the ACC recruiter of the year and a top-25 recruiter overall in 2018.
