Boyd returning for senior season
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year Tajh Boyd will return to Clemson for his senior season.
The junior quarterback announced his intention to hold off on the NFL on Wednesday. His return will help keep the Tigers record-setting, fast-paced attack moving forward in 2013.
Boyd broke his own school records this past season with 3,896 passing yards and 36 touchdowns. He was also second on the team in rushing with 514 yards and led Clemson with 10 touchdowns on the ground. Clemson finished 11-2.
Boyd is the second piece of the Tigers' attack to stay put. Offensive coordinator Chad Morris was the focus of several schools for head coaching openings, but expects to again run the offense. Junior receiver DeAndre Hopkins has yet to announce future plans.
