Marty Simmons with Clemson Staff

Postby Ace78 » Sat Jul 14, 2018 2:05 pm

Can't confirm yet, but I think Coach Simmons has taken a position on the Clemson Basketball Staff. Very glad to see that he has this opportunity to continue coaching! Clemson's head coach is former Evansville Harrison star, Brad Brownell. Best wishes to Coach Simmons!

I saw pictures of the entire Simmons family at Clemson on Facebook a couple hours ago.

Marty Simmons hired by Clemson

Clemson basketball adds former Evansville coach Marty Simmons to staff

https://amp.courierpress.com/amp/785603002?__twitter_impression=true

Marty Simmons' next coaching job will be in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The former University of Evansville head coach has joined the staff of Brad Brownell at Clemson. Brownell, an Evansville native and Harrison High School graduate, recently led the Tigers to 25 wins and a Sweet 16 appearance.

Simmons' oldest son and former Aces player Blake Simmons broke the news with an Instagram post Saturday afternoon from the Clemson University campus in South Carolina.

"Orange and Purple just got a little more exciting," he wrote. "Congrats Dad for joining the Clemson staff!"

It is unknown what role Simmons will specifically serve.

Clemson's athletic website already lists the maximum of three assistant coaches in addition to directors of operations and player development and a strength and conditioning coach

Interesting that the news broke not from Clemson or Marty himself, but coordinated social media posts by his kids.

I am curious what the position and job duties will include since their staff is already full of assistants, so it must be some kind of administrative or staff position.

I haven't yawned this hard since watching his last game as the Aces coach.

Wonder if Brownell has guaranteed the youngest Simmons boy a spot? Clemson better start sewing some sweater vests. This is called a former coworker helping out his old buddy.

We'll know more in the days to come. If Marty is heading to Clemson, I wish him the best.
