Clemson Assistant Among Favorites To Land Auburn Job

As the head coaching carousel has begun has come out with odds for the Auburn vacancy and they have former Clemson assistant coaches Billy Napier, Kevin Steele, and the Tigers current defensive coordinator Brent Venables on their list of possible candidates.

“I think it starts first with having an appreciation for what you do have,” Venables said on Monday when asked about taking a head coaching job. “The people that you work with, the players that you coach, where you live, where you coach, the opportunity to win. Certainly, I am well compensated, but it is a lot more than that for me. It is being in a place where you are valued, and you feel like you are bringing something to the table. I just have a gratefulness that maybe other people don’t. There are not many Clemson’s. It’s a special place.”
