Fan Letter: Thank You, Tony Elliott and Brent Venables

On behalf of Clemson Nation, I want to say thank you. Thank you for the many conference championships, the three national championship appearances (two trophies), the countless NFL draft picks, and the numerous conference stat leaders. In the nine years of Brent Venables and the seven of Tony Elliott, you two have helped make Clemson football what it is today.

Coach Venables, you are headed back to where your children were born, in Norman, Oklahoma, to coach the Oklahoma Sooners, and Coach Elliott, going a few hours north to Charlottesville, Virginia, to coach the Cavaliers.

I see greatness in store for both of you at your respective institutions. I also see Coach V getting Oklahoma back to the College Football Playoff and Coach E getting Virginia, at the very least, back into the conference championship contention and possibly into contention for the New Year’s Six Bowl games. I also see the Clemson football team crushing the Cheez-It Bowl for the both of you, as a way of saying thanks, and to show the fan base they have nothing to worry about now that the two of you are gone.

Over the years and particularly this past season, many people have said they want to see you leave (mostly from other fan bases), but now that you two are leaving, Clemson fans are sad, but they are also wishing you well. We Clemson fans miss the two of you already, and will gladly root for the Sooners and the Cavaliers when they are not playing our beloved Tigers.

Signed,

The Clemson Tigers Fan Base
