2019 Football Coaching Carousel


Former Auburn and Akron coach Terry Bowden is heading to the [Clemson] football staff as a 63-year-old graduate assistant. The news [was first reported by TigerNet] and has been confirmed by multiple outlets. The Charlotte Observer reports that Bowden is pursuing a Master’s Degree in athletic leadership at Clemson, and his position on the staff is that of an unpaid graduate internship.


Um…kay. You do you, Terry!


This sounds Dabo’s take on Nick Saban’s revolving door of old coaches that need career rehabilitation. Spend a season or two on the National Championship sidelines and somebody will hire you. Clemson gets an experienced coach for free, and Bowden gets to bask in the glow of success. And some cool orange shirts.


Terry can borrow some Clemson shirts from his brother Tommy.
