CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -Clemson defensive coordinator Vic Koenning resigned Tuesday, one day after the Tigers officially hired Dabo Swinney as head coach.
Koenning said in a statement released by the school his role with the team next season was in question so he decided to leave before Clemson's bowl game to have more job options.
Koenning had been defensive coordinator and secondary coach for the past four seasons. Clemson's defense led the ACC in scoring defense and ranked ninth in the nation allowing just 16.6 points per game.
Swinney was chosen as interim head coach after Tommy Bowden stepped down midway through his tenth season. Swinney was promoted Monday after leading the Tigers to a 31-14 win over in-state rival South Carolina.
