Neither Clemson Defensive Coordinator Brent Venables nor Head Coach Dabo Swinney gave credence to rumors about the former’s departure for a potential Head Coach opening.
Venables name has been connected via multiple media reports with openings at Arkansas and Mississippi State, programs who are looking for new shepherds for the 2018 season.
Arkansas fired Bret Bielema Friday after finishing 4-8 with the Razorbacks, while former Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen assumed the same position at Florida.
In Tuesday’s Press Conference to preview Clemson’s ACC Championship Game against Miami, Swinney said he’s not concerned about the potential rumors.
“I don’t worry about it one second, that’s all God’s plan, I’m not God. I trust God, I don’t worry about it one second, zero,” said Swinney.
Venables, a Kansas State grad who has coordinated at Oklahoma previously and been at Clemson since 2012, addressed the rumors as well Tuesday:
Clemson and Miami play Saturday for the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte at 8 PM.
