Former Clemson assistant lands at Tulsa

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Former Clemson assistant Ron West has found a home as Tulsa's co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach, the schools announced today.

West, who spent the past 10 seasons as an assistant under former coach Tommy Bowden, was recently displaced when coach Dabo Swinney added Kevin Steele as defensive coordinator. West had been coaching the linebackers.

West was left to either find a new job, or take a role as an administrative assistant. West is a strong recruiter, and his experience will help in the states of Texas and Louisiana, but this whole transition couldn't have been easy for the 1979 Clemson grad. He was on Bowden's staff at Tulane, too. So it goes in the business of college football.
