Clemson offensive line coach/associate head coach Brad Scott officially announced his retirement from coaching Wednesday, and will now move into an administrative position within the athletic department.
Scott has been with Clemson football since 1999, and those 12 years mark the 9th longest tenure for a Clemson assistant in program history. He has served as offensive coordinator, offensive line coach, and associate head coach while at Clemson, along with being an integral part of the recruiting process. Clemson was bowl eligible all 12 years Scott was on staff, but missed one season due to an altercation during the USC-Clemson game in 2004. Scott was a part of many record-setting offenses at Clemson, including 6 of the top 8 seasons in total offense per game. He coached 15 All-ACC players, and 5 All-Americans.
Clemson has not announced Scott’s official position within the athletic department, but he will be working as an administrator primarily within the football office. He was the head coach at USC for 5 years prior to going to Clemson, and led USC to its first ever bowl game victory in the 1995 Carquest bowl over West Virginia.
