Former Clemson head coach Tommy West, who built his reputation as a defensive coordinator and linebacker coach, is returning to the sidelines after a year out of football as the defensive coordinator at UAB. Footballscoop.com and the Memphis Commercial-Appeal reported the move and another source confirmed it Tuesday night.
West was the head coach at Memphis from 2001-2009. He also has been head coach at Clemson and UT Chattanooga. He also served as defensive coordinator at USC.
