Brent Venables

Quick Bio: If you’re looking for one of the hottest names in the assistant coaching ranks, look no further than Brent Venables. He’s been Clemson’s defensive coordinator since 2012, and he’s helped the Tigers win a national title and appear in two consecutive championship games.

Pros: Venables’ defenses have been some of the best in the nation at Clemson. He also made Oklahoma’s defense something to be feared from 1999 to 2011.

Cons/Questions: No head coaching experience should raise a lot of eyebrows, but if you’re going to take a risk on someone who is an assistant without head coaching experience who doesn’t have Tennessee ties, Venables is about as good as you can get.
