Clemson has made a decision on its new athletics director, and it will leave a void at Georgia Tech.
The Tigers plan to name Georgia Tech athletics director Dan Radakovich to replace Terry Don Phillips, according to TigerIllustrated.com. Radakovich's departure could mean some confusion for Yellow Jackets coach Paul Johnson, who must hire a defensive coordinator after the season. If Radakovich does not set a salary parameter for that position, it will be left to someone inside a transitioning Georgia Tech athletic department to decide how much Johnson can pay a new defensive boss.
While Charles Kelly, who was named interim defensive coordinator at Georgia Tech after Johnson fired Al Groh, is capable and has previous experience as a defensive coordinator, Johnson probably will go outside for a hire.
Clemson football and men's basketball coaches Dabo Swinney and Brad Brownell, who both supported the promotion of associate Bill D'Andrea at Clemson, are settled in their positions.
