Conn, a teammate with Swinney on Alabama’s 1992 National Championship team, was on Clemson’s staff this past season as senior defensive analyst and is set to coach the safeties and work closely with Mike Reed, who will coach the cornerbacks.

Conn just finished his first season as senior defensive analyst with the Clemson program and helped the Tigers to a 14-1 record and the National Championship. The Tigers won the ACC title as well and beat a school record five top 25 teams, including No. 2 Ohio State and No .1 Alabama in the College Football Playoff.

Conn helped a Clemson defense that finished the year eighth in the nation in total defense and 10th in scoring defense. The Tigers were also third in tackles for loss, fourth in third-down conversion defense, and fourth in pass efficiency defense.

Conn came to Clemson from Grayson High School in Georgia where he started the program in 2000 and coached for 16 years. He had a record of 137-48 and took the program to seven region championships. He won at least 10 games in eight of his last nine seasons, including a 13-1 record in 2015.

Conn led the Rams to the State Championship in 2011 when one of his running backs was Wayne Gallman, who just finished his career fifth in rushing in Clemson history. Tigers Ryan Carter and Nick Schuessler were also developed under Conn at Grayson.
