CLEMSON, S.C.-Clemson assistant head football coach and offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez announced at 2 p.m. on Monday that he is no longer pursuing the vacant head coaching position at Texas Tech.


RICH RODRIGUEZ COMMENTS ON STAYING AT CLEMSON


"I have made a decision to stay at Clemson University. I really think that we have a great thing going here and feel fortunate to be a part of the Clemson family and I am no longer pursuing or am interested in the job at Texas Tech University."


"The people at Texas Tech have been great. Gerald Myers, their athletic director, the search committee, Chancellor John Montford, the people I met when I interviewed down there. You couldn’t be more first class or more professional in the way they treated me. Everything went really well during the interview and the visit. Very, very tough decision for me not to pursue the job any further."


"At this time I thought for my family that it was best for us stay here at Clemson University."


For What Reasons Did You Decide to Stay at Clemson

"There is a lot of them I promise you. You’re not officially offered the job or anything, those things go through your mind when you are interviewing and after you interview about where you want to be in your career. I think the overriding issue with me is the family. Our situation here at Clemson University is good, we have something going here that is on the upswing. My family is very happy here and we’re relatively close to both of our families. I think that was a big factor of it."


"The decision had nothing to do at all with Texas Tech University or the fine city of Lubbock or anything of that nature. It had everything to do personally with the way I felt about family and the way things are going here at Clemson."
