What Clemson coordinators said after 52-10 win over Charlotte


by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson co-offensive coordinators Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott and defensive coordinator Brent Venables talked to the media after Clemson's 52-10 win over Charlotte on Saturday night.

On the game:

“[I’m] really proud of our guys. This was kind of the next test coming off of a physical game against Syracuse last week and coming out to play a game we’re expected to win big. To be able to go out there and get off to a fast start was really big. That’s something we really challenged the offensive guys [to do].”

On the quarterbacks:

“It was great to be able to get Trevor [Lawrence] out of there and let Chase [Brice] get some good reps. I thought he did a good job. It was great to see him throw that touchdown to Joseph Ngata. That was big. And [it was also big] for Taisun [Phommachanh] to get in there and get some good experience.”

On the plan with Trevor Lawrence’s playing time:

“The plan was to go out and get control of the game, and then if we could do that let Chase [Brice] get in there and play.”

On playing 110 players:

“It was a lot of fun to watch those guys get out there and get an opportunity… It was great to reward them when those guys work every bit as hard. Backups, third team, walk-ons and scout team guys, they all deserved that opportunity because they’ve been working about as hard as anybody in the program.”

On joy in watching the back-ups play:

“I think it’s all the same. Those guys are grinding all the time, and they’d probably surprise you a little bit. They were able to go out and execute and make plays. It was a great opportunity for them, and it gives you confidence as a coach. It develops them, and it gives both them and the coaches confidence when they go out there and execute.”

On watching the back-ups on film:

“They’ll show. It’ll be their first time showing up all year to film study. It’ll be a lot of fun going through the tape with those guys and watching those guys get around and make plays.”
