Be careful what you wish for.
While many Clemson fans having soured on Tony Elliott due to the offensive struggles this season, those struggles do not seem to be hurting his stock in the eyes of schools looking to hire head coaches.
TCU, who just parted ways with longtime head coach Gary Patterson last season, is interested in talking with the Clemson coordinator about the vacancy, according to a report by 247Sports.
Elliott has been the Tigers lone offensive coordinator since the end of 2018, when Jeff Scott left to take the head coaching job at USF. However, he has been the Tigers primary play caller since Chad Morris left following the 2014 regular season.
Sonny Dykes, current SMU head coach and former TCU analyst, is considered by many to be the early favorite to land the job. And knowing the reputation of Elliott, if he does have interest in talking to the Horned Frogs, it won’t be until after the regular season is finished.
