    Dabo Swinney fires OC Billy Napier and RB coach Andre Powell

    http://www.tigernet.com/view/story.do?id=9247

    Andre Powell was an easy decision. Special teams are still plagued with problems and really none of his RB's have progressed well under his watch. That includes James Davis and CJ Spiller.

    Napier is tough. He was put in a bad situation by Swinney from the beginning. But Clemson does need an experienced OC and a good QB coach. I think Jeff Scott needs to go at WR coach too, but that will probably cause problems with his dad....although, my feelings would not be hurt if Brad Scott was let go too.

    No word on who the replacement would be. I would really like Friedgen if he'd be willing to be an OC again.

    Looks like you might lose Mike Bellamy as well.

    I hope Peake opens his recruitment back up, lol. I know he won't...but I wish he would.

    I have heard RF's name, but mostly have heard that the leading candidate for OC for you guys is...Greg Davis. From Texas. That a joke?

    That is exactly what I was thinking.


    I am a little surprised they didn't try to get Napier to just move to recruiting coordinator and position coach or something like that. I guess he probably wouldn't take the step down, but losing his recruiting ability is going to hurt the Tigers bad.

    Not sure, if Napier was offered a position coach. But honestly, he hasn't impressed that much at a QB coach either. He would have to be a better WR coach than Jeff Scott though. But in the end, if he were offered a demotion, he probably would not take it.

    Greg Davis? For real?

    Tigernet is reporting that Bellamy is still solid with Clemson. Take it for what its worth.

    I'd take Rich Rod or the Whale. RR was one of the best playcallers we ever had and the recruiting class we have plus Boyd would be perfect for his offense.

    Hah, just read the TN article on Sammy Watkins. Maybe this is why the Scott's are still there:

    http://www.tigernet.com/view/story.do?id=9250
    “They all called me and I just got off the phone with them,” Watkins told TigerNet. “They told me about it. But it doesn’t affect me at all, because it’s a business and things happen. For guys like me and Charone [Peake] and Mike [Bellamy], it doesn’t affect us at all. Sometimes you have to take the next step. As long as Coach [Brad] Scott, Coach Swinney and the receivers coach [Jeff Scott] don’t go anywhere, then I’m alright.

    Hopefully our current class will remain in tact. I was really hoping Napier would just do us all a favor by packing his stuff and heading to Furman.

    Dabose should've never been Clemson's HC. That school must have low self-esteem.
