Clemson has landed Oklahoma's Brent Venables to take over the Tigers defense.
Tigers coach Dabo Swinney texted The Associated Press with the
news Wednesday night, "BV to Clemson."
Venables will take over for Kevin Steele, who left Clemson last
week with Swinney saying the two had philosophical differences.
Venables visited Clemson last weekend. There were no details when
Venables would arrive on campus to start working.
Venables had served as the Sooners defensive coordinator since
1999 and helped Oklahoma win a national championship in 2000.
The Tigers were 81st nationally at more than 29 points a game
this year. The capper came in the Orange Bowl when the Atlantic
Coast Conference champions gave up a bowl record 70 points in
losing to West Virginia.
