Well this is an interesting development: we saw Marty Simmons this past season in Cameron, when he brought his Evansville team to town to play the Blue Devils.

We thought they were outmatched but well coached.

Still, at the end of the season, Evansville fired the rotund coach.

So guess where he has turned up?

As a Clemson assistant.

He’ll help we’re sure. He’s got vast experience and spent two years playing for Bob Knight at Indiana before leaving. We’re sure Brad Brownell has a solid plan for using a guy like that.
