Who was Clemson looking at hiring besides Dabo?


Posted: Dec 6, 2017 10:40 PM
 

Given the current round of the coaching carousel, I was wondering who Clemson was looking at hiring if not Dabo? It would be interesting to see how their respective careers played out. Obviously, we could not have done better. Anyone have a link?

It was either Saban, Urban Meyer, or Dabo.

He's beat both, and I'd say we're doing ok


steve spurrier but the coots won those

Troy Calhoun (Air Force) was also mentioned and that was who I wanted at the time but would not trade anyone for Dabo now.

It was down to Bud Foster and Dabo as far as the public release of information. Dabo beat Steve Spurrier and the coots to finish out the season he took over for Bowden. That victory and his reputation with the players really got him the job.

Y'all need to quit being so paranoid. It's a legitimate question derived out of curiosity. I was/am referring to 2008 if that wasn't obvious.

Check out this old article by Espn last January where they interviewed Terry Don Phillips on the hiring of Dabo!! Its a great read!!!

Here's a quote from the release. "Among the coaches Phillips had an interest in were Gary Patterson, Jim Grobe, Brady Hoke, Will Muschamp, Troy Calhoun, Mike Locksley, Bud Foster, Brent Venables and Lane Kiffin."

Here's what each of these guys have done as a head coach since the start of the 2009 season. I'm fairly certain Ole Terry Don made the right choice! It was a MASTER STROKE!!



Dabo Swinney - 97-27 (CLEMSON!!!)
Gary Patterson - 86-30 (TCU)
Jim Grobe - 30-44 (Wake Forest, Baylor)
Brady Hoke - 44-34 (SDSU, Michigan, Tenn.)
Lane Kiffin - 45-24 (Tennessee, USC, FAU)
Will Muschamp - 42-32 (Florida, U-Suck)
Troy Calhoun - 65-51 (Air Force)
Mike Locksley - 3-31 (New Mexico, Maryland)
Bud Foster - (DC at Virginia Tech)
Brent Venables - (Great DC at CLEMSON!!!)


Gary Patterson, Bud Foster, Will Muschamp, Lane Kiffin and Brent Venables.

Seems to be who we we’re looking at closely and trying to gauge interest. There’s probably a few more names but I remember interviewing Bud Foster.

Wasn’t Vanderbilt’s coach considered a candidate for the job?


Here’s a good article!

Bobby Johnson was also considered.


The rumor on campus was Will Muschamp

Texas gave gave him a lucrative deal and he was supposed to be the coach in waiting. Thank goodness Texas took that bullet for us.

Quite a few t-netters really wanted Muschamp,

in part because there was a picture going around of him on the sidelines with blood on his face while he was blowing a gasket. Seriously, TB seemed so uninspiring, some were ready to hire a nutjob because of a picture that included blood.
