Bowden watches the action during Clemson's spring game

CLEMSON - Former Akron and Auburn head coach Terry Bowden has joined the Clemson coaching staff.

Bowden was let go from Akron in early December. He went 35-52 in seven seasons at Akron, but he guided the Zips to the MAC East division title in 2017 and bowl appearances in two of the previous three years.

At Clemson, Bowden is pursuing a Master's in athletic leadership and will be assisting as an unpaid graduate intern during that time.

Bowden is the brother of former Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden and the son of former FSU head coach Bobby Bowden. Terry was previously the head coach at Salem University (1983–1985), Samford University (1987–1992), Auburn University (1993–1998), and the University of North Alabama (2009–2011).

Bowden was an observer for much of Clemson's spring practice.
