I think if and when chad leaves, and most think he gets a hc job this year, whether they hire jeff scott or not, they almost have to hire someone who run the same offense because of the players that are there. they can't go back to running a power run game because they don't have the linemen or backs. what would they do with the 23 receivers they have recruited? and I think if dabo doesn't give the job to jeff scott, chad may take him with him as an oc. will be interesting, but they will for sure take a step back when chad leaves.
He will be there as long as he is winning 10+ per year regardless of his w/l column against us. He is recruiting very well also. Most Taters i know seem to love the guy.
it's really unfortunate that TDP departed. He was good for USC.

Been saying this sine Jan 1st I think the meltdown is going to be epic after they fall on their faces.I think they lose 4 games NC State, Syracuse, Virginia and South Carolina
From what I have heard in G Vegas, there have been conversations but not a lot of heat yet. He needs to win the ACC or beat us this year. If not, it will get much warmer next year. Just what I heard.
My son's message to Obama, Clemson, and Georgia
They know he can't win without overpriced OC and DC. When things start going south they will move quickly.
Dabo is not going anywhere for A long time unless Saban retires soon
If Clemson keeps winning or getting to the conference championship game in the ACC then a loss to USC matters little to their Athletic Dept., it might bother some tater fans greatly, but the Ath. Dept. realizes that USC has lucked into a great coach in Spurrier, one who's 68 and nearing the end of his brilliant career, even if that's 6 or 7 years away. So as long as Dabo keeps winning in the ACC and keeps recruiting like a SEC school then he won't be going anywhere (especially not to Bama ;) ).
OTOH, if Clemson has a bad season in the ACC one year (like maybe next with the loss of both Boyd and Morris) and Clemson loses to USC for the 6th time in a row then he's toast imo.
If they fire him for losing to SC, despite successful seasons, other coaches would take pause in accepting the position.

Counterpoint: Cooper, John and tOSU.
The difference is that Cooper and his Blackeyes teams lost to its rival, Michigan, who was also in the same conference. That made it harder for OSU to win the conference and get to higher bowl games. Plus, OSU is light years ahead of Clemsux and has actual football tradition and history as a "power."

John Cooper made it 13 years. I think Dabo would do something similar if he was putting up 9-10 win seasons.
Cooper was 6-6 in his next to last season and then 8-4 in his last season, but capped that off with a loss to USC. A loss to the Gamecocks has been the end of a number of head coaches. A loss to the old USC by a football power meant any hot seat went nuclear.
Spurrier I think has changed that perception, at least for now.
Not as long as his pre-season national championship streak is alive
