CLEMSON - The rumored departure of Clemson defensive coordinator Reggie
Herring became fact Wednesday.


Herring resigned his job with the Tigers to become the defensive coordinator
at Ole Miss, according to a source speaking on the condition he not be
identified.


An official announcement is expected to come from Ole Miss sometime late this
afternoon or early this evening. A spokesperson in the school's sports
information department refused to comment Wednesday afternoon, but indicated
a release was expected.


Attempts to reach Herring Wednesday afternoon were unsuccessful. Herring
cleaned out his office before an afternoon meeting with Clemson head coach
Tommy Bowden, and calls to his office no longer are forwarded to a voice
mailbox.


More information will be forthcoming as it becomes available.
