Jeff Scott is reportedly returning to the Clemson Tigers.

After being fired by USF this past season, Scott is returning to Dabo Swinney’s staff as an analyst and in a recruiting role to some capacity, according to Brad Crawford

Scott was previously on staff for both of Swinney’s national titles at Clemson. Now, he’s back with the program.

Jeff Scott might have been a disaster at USF, but he was an outstanding coordinator and assistant during his time with the Tigers.

Some of his offenses were absolutely electric. Look no further than Trevor Lawrence’s freshman season when they ran Alabama off the field in the national title game.

Deshaun Watson also put up monster numbers before Lawrence carried the coach.

Jeff Scott isn’t returning as OC. That role has been given to Garrett Riley, but simply having an experienced coach on staff is great for Dabo Swinney.

Clemson appears to have taken a step back the past couple years. The Tigers need a shot of energy and life.

Bringing back an assistant who is a proven winner is a great step in the right direction.

Will Clemson be able to turn things around and compete for a national title in 2023? That remains to be seen, but clearly, Dabo Swinney is shaking things up. Scott coming back to town makes that clear.

  1. Dabo is hated by Clemson’s Hated Rivals cause thats what Hated Rivals do ….. …. That said … He has always accepted responsibility / accountability as CEO / Head Coach of Clemson Football . Traits of a true leader …. AND always distributes the praise to his staff and players for Clemson successes. Also … traits of a true leader.
