Clemson Offensive Coordinator Tony Elliott Will Miss Sugar Bowl Vs. Ohio State Due To COVID-19 Protocols


#Clemson will be without a key coach on #Friday.

#Offensive coordinator and running backs coach #Tony #Elliott will miss the #Sugar #Bowl due to COVID-19 protocols, the #Tigers announced on #Wednesday. #He will not travel with the rest of team to #New #Orleans later on #Wednesday afternoon.

#Thus, #Clemson will face #Ohio #State without the luxury of having its 2017 #Broyles #Award-winning coordinator who has called plays all season on the sideline. #He’s barred from having communication with the rest of the coaches during the game, leaving head coach #Dabo #Swinney to figure out how the offense will operate without #Elliott to rely on.

#As of now, it’s unclear whether or not #Elliott tested positive for COVID-19 or whether it has affected anybody else within the program. #Both #Ohio #State and #Clemson will release their status reports on #Friday at some point before the game.

#Elliott, who spoke to the media as part of a regularly scheduled press conference on #Wednesday, has been at #Clemson since 2011. The 41-year-old assistant become a walk-on team captain as a senior when playing for the #Tigers from 2000 to 2003, and three years later he began a coaching career that hasn’t ever taken him out of the state of #South #Carolina. #After stints at #South #Carolina #State and #Furman, he joined #Clemson’s coaching staff in 2011 as running backs coach. #He then was promoted by #Swinney to co-offensive coordinator in 2015 before becoming the sole offensive coordinator earlier this year when fellow co-offensive coordinator #Jeff #Scott left for #South #Florida.

#Since #Elliott began his coordinating duties a half-decade ago, the #Sugar #Bowl will be the first time #Swinney won’t have him in the stadium for a game.

#Ohio #State-Clemson is slated to kick off at 8 p.m. on ESPN with a national championship berth on the line.
