Bowden on Rodney Allison being Named Head Coach at Chattanooga
"I have coached with Rodney Allison for many years and he
will make a terrific head coach. I worked on the offensive side of
the ball with him at Duke and Auburn for seven years combined, and he
has worked on my staff as a defensive coach for the last four years.
"He knows both sides of the ball and has been significantly
involved in our special teams. Clemson fans will remember how we
stopped South Carolina's fake field goal late in the fourth quarter
this year. Defending that situation was Rodney's responsibility and
he put his players in position to make the play. South Carolina
failed and never got the ball back. It was a big reason we won the
"His players, the coaching staff and our administration will
miss Coach Allison. He has had a lot to do with our selection to four
bowl games in four years.
"Rodney will not coach our bowl game, he will begin
recruiting for Chattanooga immediately. At this time, I don't know
if we will have a replacement by the bowl game. If we don't, current
assistants will divide his responsibilities."
