Report: Tommy West hired by MTSU

Read Update »

I don't think many would say that Tommy West...

Posted: Feb 4, 2014 4:31 PM

had a successful run at Clemson. But I had the opportunity to spend some time around him and I will say he is a decent, respectful man who really cared about Clemson and Clemson fans. He even took the time to send me a card when I was going through a tough period with my health. That really impressed me because he knew I am not a CU alumnus nor an IPTAY donor. I wish Coach West well at MTSU.

I was thinking more along the lines of trouble establishing an offensive idenity. Tommy gave it his all and was well liked. He later admitted he wasnt ready for the CU job though with the divisions of that era I'm not sure anyone could have been

I have never met anyone from Clemson

who had anything bad to say about Tommy West other than he was put in an impossible situation and simply wasn't head coach material. There aren't many fired coaches who get carried off the field in their last game of a 3 win season.

I have always wished Tommy well in his post Clemson endeavors, and IMO he can do MTSU a good job.

Always liked him, always will, represented us with class***

His sons were already GAs on the staff at MT. As a Tiger that lives and grew up in Murfreesboro, I see them out every mow amd again. They played at Memphis for Tommy but I know they are die hard Clemson fans.

Go 31-28 @ clemson(in 5 years) you get fired.

Go 31-28 @ USuCk(in 5 years) you get a contract EXT.

That's the difference between CU and USuCk.
