Tony Elliott Linked to Multiple NFL Openings but Reportedly Will Stay in Clemson

Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott is considered one of the brightest young minds in the game so it should come as no surprise that he is being linked to two different NFL openings.

Earlier this week Elliott’s name surfaced as a potential candidate to take over as offensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks under head coach Pete Carroll.

Now he is also being named as a possible candidate to assume the same role in Miami with the Dolphins after Chan Gailey stepped down on Wednesday.

However, it appears that Elliott is planning on staying put in Clemson for the time being.

Elliott has served as Clemson offensive coordinator since Chad Morris left following the 2014 season. Up until this season he has shared the duties with Jeff Scott. However, Scott left to take over the USF program after the 2019 season and Elliott is now the lone offensive coordinator for the Tigers.

During the Tigers 49-28 Sugar Bowl loss to Ohio State, Elliott was unable to make the trip due to testing positive for Covid. Brandon Streeter assumed the play-calling duties in his absence.
