CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Former all-Southeastern Conference linebacker Lemanski Hall - and one-time teammate of coach Dabo Swinney - has been named Clemson's 10th full-time assistant coach.
Hall, who spent the past three seasons as a defensive analyst for the Tigers, will coach defensive ends and give Clemson five assistant coaches on offense and defense heading into the 2018 season.
Hall was starting linebacker for Alabama in 1992 when it won the national championship. Swinney was a receiver on that squad.
Swinney said Hall has been tagged for the position the past few years once the NCAA passed the rule that allowed an additional full-time assistant on staff.
Hall played nine seasons in the NFL. He spent much of his time before Clemson coaching high schools.
