Clemson, SC-Head Coach Tommy Bowden has announced that linebackers
coach David Blackwell, will serve as Clemson's recruiting
coordinator. Blackwell joined the Clemson staff in January when he
replaced Rodney Allison, who left Clemson to become the head coach at
UT Chattanooga. Blackwell takes over the recruiting coordinator
vacancy that was created earlier this week when Rick Stockstill
resigned to become the offensive coordinator at East Carolina.

Blackwell, 31, had been with the Pittsburgh program each of
the last three years under Head Coach Walt Harris. Prior to that he
was an assistant coach at Illinois State for four years. He served
as the recruiting coordinator for four years for that program.
"David has experience in this capacity," said Bowden. "He knows the
area, knows the coaches and has handled this responsibility from an
administrative standpoint."

Bowden said Friday he continues to evaluate candidates for a
replacement for Stockstill's job as wide receivers coach. Until a
replacement is hired, Bowden will coach the position. He was a wide
receiver as a player at West Virginia and coached the position at 10
years as an assistant at Alabama, Kentucky and Auburn.
