Report: Tony Elliott in final two for Duke

[2]
Dec 7, 2021, 3:03 PM

Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott is in a final two with another prominent coordinator for the open head coaching job at Duke, according to the News & Observer. The article cites a desire to wrap up the search by the end of this week:

"After showing initial interest in current head coaches like East Carolina’s Mike Houston and Army’s Jeff Monken, Duke’s focus is trained on assistants, led by Clemson’s Tony Elliott and Texas A&M’s Mike Elko.

"The school is looking for a new coach after parting ways with David Cutcliffe, Duke’s coach since 2008, on Nov. 28. While Elko and Elliott are among the final candidates being considered, the search process remains ongoing...

"Though Duke is a private school that doesn’t release contract details, the IRS 990 form the school is required to annually file with the federal government showed Cutcliffe’s salary at $2,848,237. But with the changing landscape of college athletics finances, Duke will be certainly increasing that salary package for its next coach.

"Their continued involvement, after in-person meetings with Duke officials, shows Elliott and Elko have not been deterred by any financial factors.

"If hired, Elliott would become the first person of color to serve as Duke’s head football coach.

"While Elliott and Elko remain in Duke’s sights, former Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett remains on the school’s radar as well. Though he’s never coached college football, Garrett played quarterback at Princeton before embarking on an NFL playing and coaching career."

Really wanted Elk as our DC. I know it would be short term but he is at the top of my list. He could also potentially poach a few recruits from TAM. I understand it would probably cost us $2.5M to get him but that's the arena we're playing in now and I have read CU will spare no expense in the DC hire.

If Elko leaves, does Dindy go back to OU?

Who is going to be the defensive coach in our Bowl game? I know of a good one Dabo should check out in his search for a new DC, y'all remember Bryan Dawkins, he was an animal back in 90's, just saying.

What makes you think Dawkins would be a good coach

considering he has absolutely no prior coaching experience.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

It's going to be a combination of Wes Goodwin and either Conn, Reed, or Bates. Wes Goodwin visited Jaren Kanak today with Reed and Bates.

That makes sense…lose out to a guy who coached a pro team. Just throw in the towel. Hope your tongue was in your cheek OR sheesh!
