DT COACH, RECRUITING COORDINATOR TODD BATES LEAVES CLEMSON TO JOIN VENABLES, TURNIPSEED AT OKLAHOMA

Well, the ripple effects from Lincoln Riley's departure from Oklahoma to USC continue to hit Clemson hard. The Tigers have not only lost Brent Venables, Thad Turnipseed, Strength Coach Smotherman and 4-star recruit Jaren Kanak to Oklahoma.

Perhaps Dabo will allow Hall to coach the entire line, or perhaps he will bring in another coach from the outside to replace Bates. The bigger question is who Dabo will turn to as the new Recruiting Coordinator, which is obviously a critical position for any program, and National Signing Day is just about a month away.
