The school announced, Wednesday, that Clemson Attack Coordinator Tony Elliott will not be available for training on Friday due to COVID-19 protocols.
Elliott did not travel with the team to New Orleans on Wednesday afternoon. Clemson (10-1) prepares to play Ohio State (6-0) at the 2021 Allstate Sugar Bowl.
Dabou Sweeney, Clemson coach, said Elliott is doing a great job and has no symptoms of COVID-19.
Elliott worked under Sweeney for nine seasons. He was initially hired as a team back coach in 2011. Elliott won the 2017 Broilers Award for his outstanding work as the Clemson Offensive Coordinator.
The Tigers are 6-8 years old during Elliott’s crime summons.
Sweeney said midfield coach and passing coordinator Brandon Streeter will summon the Tigers’ attack plays from the press box. Former rear-tracked graduate assistant CJ Spiller, Clemson will train the full back in the field.
