Nick Eason is now an Associate Head Coach for Clemson Football

Clemson Football defensive line coach Nick Eason has been promoted to associate head coach. Eason joined the Tiger staff in 2022 after a stint in Auburn and several years coaching in the NFL.

Eason is a Tiger alum, playing from 1999 to 2002. He then played nine seasons in the NFL for the Browns, Steelers, and Cardinals.

PJ Hall named to another mid-season watchlist

PJ Hall has been named to the Lute Olson Award mid-season watchlist. The award is bestowed annually to the most outstanding player in NCAA Division I basketball.

The award is named after Lute Olson, who was the head coach of the Arizona Wildcats from 1983 to 2008. He also served as the head coach at Iowa and Long Beach State.

In a stunning reversal, Cam Ward has decided to return to college football and join the Miami Hurricanes after all.

Just more evidence that nothing is 100% until there is a contract or a deadline passes, and even then there could still be some wiggle room.
