CLEMSON, SC - At a time of the year when transfer announcements are the norm, redshirt junior DE Logan Rudolph bucked the trend like he does so often and announced his early retirement from football on Thursday. He has always been an unusual guy, from his shirtless commitment video wearing jean shorts and chopping wood to his alter ego, “Coach Stiff.” Rudolph is graduating in May and will forego his final year of eligibility.
Rudolph probably wouldn’t have played as much as he did this year with the guys coming back and the freshmen coming in, and he likely would not have a career in the NFL like his older brother Mason, who started at quarterback for the Steelers this season. I think the team will miss his heart, work ethic and personality, though. We in the media will certainly miss his Coach Stiff routine. Rudolph released a message on Twitter, below, and I've reached out to him for comment. I'll have more as it comes in!
