Clemson, SC-Former Clemson Athletic Director Bill McLellan will assist the Clemson Athletic Department in its fund-raising effort, in particular for the WestZone Project, senior associate athletic director for external affairs Bill D'Andrea said Thursday.


"Bill McLellan has over 40 years of experience in athletic fund-raising, including 26 years as a Division I athletic director
and we welcome his expertise," said D'Andrea. "He supervised all
aspects of the construction of the North and South upper decks at Memorial Stadium and also had significant experience in that area when he was the
athletic director at Southern Mississippi."


McLellan served as Clemson Athletic Director from 1971-85.
He succeeded Frank Howard as Clemson Athletic Director and oversaw a period of significant growth in the department's landscape in terms
of facilities, sports and victories. A 1955 Clemson graduate, he
had earlier served Clemson in athletic administration and as an
assistant football coach. A 1993 Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame
inductee, he was a letterman on the Clemson football teams of 1953-54 under Frank Howard.


McLellan served as the athletic director at Southern Mississippi from 1986-98. During his career Southern Mississippi made great strides in facilities and in victories on the field. He was inducted into the University of Southern Mississippi Athletic Hall of Fame in 2001.
