For the past three nights, John Hoover of the Tulsa World News has joined us to talk about the possibility of Oklahoma’s now former defensive coordinator Brent Venables joining Clemson’s football staff in the same position. Today, it was officially announced that Venables took the job at Clemson, and will be introduced as the newest member of Dabo Swinney’s staff tomorrow.
Hoover discussed this hire with us today on SportsTalk (audio link below).
Venables will be tasked with leading the nation’s 81st-ranked scoring defense into the 2012 season. He will be replacing Kevin Steele, who was let go by the Tigers late last week.
