filled by people already at Clemson.

If DRad leaves, there will be talk of a “nationwide search” and several candidates will likely be interviewed, but ultimately the position will be filled from within the athletic department.

If Venables leaves, we will likely promote someone on the defensive staff to be the new DC.

Clemson is so eager to maintain the unprecedented success we have had that there is a fear of bringing someone from completely outside the program. What if they don’t fit the culture? What if Dabo doesn’t like them? Stuff like that dominates the decision making process.

I get that. We want “Clemson people.” We want good fits. But as David Hood noted in a recent article, this is a very tumultuous time in college athletics (and in society at large) and any new hires should be at the forefront of these trends.

I don’t know the answer. I just hope Clemson doesn’t go too conservative and “safe” if we find ourselves needing to make key hires. That approach has really hurt us in the past.

Cobbox on Brad Brownell: “His only problem is he has to deal with turd fans questioning every move he makes.”


You could be right

You could be wrong. On the AD search I feel that we have quality candidates within the department, including the “Dabo” hire of Graham Neff. I for one would prefer to take a chance on a young innovator and see what happens.

Dabo has proven he will hire the best coach for the job, no matter where they come from;

Micky Conn
Lemanski Hall
Todd Bates
Robby Caldwell
Mike Reed

And yes, he has hired his share of former Clemson players like
CJ Spiller
Brandon Streeter
Tyler Grisham

But of these three the only questionable hire has been Grisham.

Manages the budget. Brad manages the second largest budget in the athletic dept.

Hire and fire. Brad has hired good people, as evident by 4 head coaches coming from his tree here.

Fund raise. Brad proved himself an able fundraiser with the basketball additions.

Here, get along with Dabo. They get along well.

No brainer :) and I actually think Brad might be committed to basketball ;)

New AD from outside the program means BB is definitely a goner.
