Clemson fires Offensive Coordinator Brandon Streeter
CLEMSON, S.C. (WCSC) - Dabo Swinney announced that offensive coordinator Brandon Streeter would not be returning to the program in 2023.
Streeter, who played QB for the Tigers in the 90′s has been on Swinney’s staff since 2015. He took over as the OC this past season after Tony Elliott took the head coaching job at Virginia.
“I am incredibly appreciative of Brandon for all he accomplished at Clemson in his 15 years as a player, graduate assistant, position coach and offensive coordinator.” Swinney said in a statement. “I am thankful for Brandon and love him and his family. He has always represented Clemson University with great pride, and I know he will continue to do great things.”
“As the leader of this program, I am accountable for our staff and accountable for our results, and though we took a step forward offensively in 2022, after evaluating our offense in-depth, I felt it was in the best interest of our program to seek new leadership at that position. These decisions are never easy, but it is my job to evaluate and assess every part of our program every year, and this was just the right time to make a change.
“I look forward to bringing in a dynamic, proven leader at offensive coordinator with the specific purpose of meeting — and raising — the standard of excellence that has been established at Clemson. I passionately believe in our staff and in the young men in our program and am excited about the opportunity to see them grow even more in 2023.”
Multiple reports around the state say the Tigers are targeting TCU OC Garrett Riley to replace Streeter.
