Friday was longtime Clemson sports information director Tim Bourret's last day as a full-time employee with the school, retiring after 40 years.

In an email to local and national media this week, Bourret tallied that he's worked 1,249 men's basketball games, 494 men's golf tournaments and 493 football games (including 330 in a row) in his time with Clemson.

Bourret will stick around for his regular role on the men's basketball broadcast, as well as some more work around Clemson athletics with regular writing contributions. He also holds a part-time role now for NBC's golf coverage.
