Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney added to his behind the scenes crew Thursday nabbing top high school coaches from South Carolina and Georgia.
Kyle Richardson of Northwestern is joining Swinney’s staff as “senior offensive assistant” according to reports. And Mickey Conn of Grayson High in Loganville, GA is joining the staff as a defensive analyst in which he will work closely with defensive coordinator Brent Venables.
Richardson spent five seasons as the head coach at Northwestern. He was 58-13 and won two state championships.
Conn, who was Swinney’s teammate and traveling roommate at Alabama, started the program at Grayson in 2000 and compiled a record of 137-48 and one state championship. Several of his players have gone to Clemson to play for Swinney.
The official announcement from Clemson on the hirings is expected Monday.
