Clemson Hires Lincoln Riley’s Brother As Offensive Coordinator

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Clemson Tigers have hired Garrett Riley as their new offensive coordinator. Riley is the younger brother of USC head coach Lincoln Riley and was most recently in the same position with TCU.

Clemson fired their former OC Brandon Streeter on Thursday. Less than a few hours later, it was reported that Riley would be joining the Tigers as their new OC, as per Larry Williams of Tiger Illustrated.

Garrett made a name for himself as offensive coordinator for TCU this past season. The Horned Frogs ranked 27th nationally in total offense, averaging 455 yards per game. TCU ranked 31st in rushing offense (193.3 YPG) and 39th in passing offense (261.7 YPG).

Before he was the OC at TCU, Garrett Riley spent time as the offensive coordinator at SMU. Dabo Swinney hopes that Riley can revive the Clemson offense.

Riley gets a chance to take over the offense at one of college football’s premier programs.
