The Clemson basketball staff has gone through many shakeups since the culmination of the 2012 season. Former assistant, Ricky Ray, took the head coaching job at Mississippi State to lead the Bulldogs. Clemson filled the void Ray left by hiring James Johnson away from Virginia Tech. Roughly 10 days later, Johnson made his way back to Blacksburg to take over head coaching duties at Virginia Tech. A month later Head Coach, Brad Brownell, now has his man in Steve Smith.

Smith talked to us about filling a seat with loads of turnaround in such a short period of time. He also took the time to take us through his extensive background, having to work his way up from the lower ranks to get to where he is today. Of course, we got a taste of Smith’s basketball philosophy as well.
