SOURCE: North Carolina is hiring Texas A&M defensive backs coach Terry Joseph for the same role. Joseph replaces Charlton Warren, who left to coach Tennessee's defensive backs.

Really interesting talking to former Clemson QB Rodney Williams on Saturday's Marty & McGee on ESPN Radio. He said Dabo Swinney has done a masterful job of making old school former Tigers feel like a part of the program's current success. "When they were planning Saturday's parade he insisted that they invite back every former player within a three-hour radius, or really just anyone who could get there. He said they had to be a part of it. It's created something really special around here."
What could be better than the classic finish Clemson provided to the college football season? How about looking ahead to what awaits fans next season?
Marty and McGee remember Clemson's epic national championship win. We also remember "Soy Bean Dave." Also, guys react to the retirement of Carl Edwards.
Clemson defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks is retiring after eight seasons with the Tigers. Brooks also coached at Tennessee, North Carolina and Florida.
