Clemson coaches ranked in Top 3 in CFB

The Clemson Football team has had important stability the last few years with the majority of their coaches sticking around in TigerTown in a world of revolving doors where assistant coaches leave season after season for greener pastures.

The stability has been the key for Clemson for several highly ranked recruiting classes in a row, player development from the veteran coaches, and has helped with the overall team success that has been seen in the last few years.

Athlon Sports has released its latest ranking of the top coaching staffs in College Football on Thursday, and Clemson was labeled as the third best coaching group in the entire college landscape and first in the ACC.

"Swapping Chad Morris for co-offensive coordinators Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott created some doubt for the Tigers last fall," Athlon Sports said. "But those two — and a healthy Deshaun Watson — are now running THE best offense in the game today. Brent Venables has resurrected his career at Clemson and will have his hands full with another rebuild this fall. And there’s never a dull moment in any locker room when Robbie Caldwell is there. This group needs to finish what it started last fall to justify its lofty ranking on this poll."

The Top 16 schools in order of the rankings were Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, Oklahoma, Michigan, Stanford, Michigan State, TCU, Notre Dame, LSU, Florida State, Tennessee, Washington, Oregon, Ole Miss, and Georgia.
