Clemson coordinator named finalist for Broyles Award


by -

Clemson has a shot at a Broyles Award three-peat.

Clemson co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott was named as one of five finalists for the top assistant award, along with Alabama's Mike Locksley, Army's Jay Bateman, Mississippi State's Bob Shoop and Notre Dame's Chip Long.

The honor has been won in consecutive years by Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables (2016) and fellow co-coordinator Tony Elliott (2017).

Clemson ranks in the top-10 in total offense (3rd; 539.1 YPG), red zone TD percentage (4th; 78.3), scoring offense (5th; 45.7 PPG) and red zone offense (7th; .917).

Scott came onto the staff as a full-time assistant when Clemson coach Dabo Swinney was promoted to head coach in 2008.

He served as Clemson's recruiting coordinator in addition to receiver coach duties up until 2014, when he took over co-offensive coordinator duties. He was named the ACC recruiter of the year and a top-25 recruiter overall in 2018.
