Clemson fires offensive coordinator Brandon Streeter
Clemson football and head coach Swinney have fired offensive coordinator Brandon Streeter after one season.
Swinney issued a statement on Streeter’s departure Thursday afternoon. Larry Williams of Tiger Illustrated was the first to report on Streeter’s dismissal.
“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,” Swinney said in the statement. “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.”
Clemson scored just 14 points in its first loss of the season at Notre Dame in November and the passing game was miserable in the 31-30 loss to South Carolina that knocked the Tigers out of playoff contention for good. Uiagalelei was just 8-of-29 passing for 99 yards in that game.
Uiagalelei was benched during the ACC title game and freshman QB Cade Klubnik took over as the Tigers rolled North Carolina. Also Uiagalelei announced shortly after the game that he would transfer and Klubnik started the Orange Bowl loss to Tennessee.
The play-calling in the 31-14 loss to the Volunteers put a ton on Klubnik’s shoulders. He threw 54 passes and also rushed the ball 20 times. Star running back Will Shipley had just 17 carries.
If and when Riley becomes Clemson’s offensive coordinator, he will be the first outside hire at offensive coordinator in Dabo Swinney’s tenure. Before becoming the team’s sole offensive coordinator, Elliott shared the role with former South Florida coach Jeff Scott from 2015-19.
Before he was Clemson’s offensive coordinator in 2022, Streeter was the passing game coordinator for two seasons after serving as the recruiting coordinator and quarterbacks coach since 2014. Overall, he spent 15 seasons at Clemson.
