Brad Scott is in his 14th year with the Clemson program, but only his second in athletic administration. The assistant athletic director moved into administration in March of 2011 after 12 seasons as an assistant coach under Tommy Bowden and Dabo Swinney from 1999-10. His 12-year tenure, which included him working with the offensive line, is tied for the ninth-longest for a Clemson football assistant coach in the program's history.
Scott works primarily with the football program in various administrative duties, but he has department-wide responsibilities when it comes to serving as a liaison between Clemson and high schools in securing documents needed to gain admission to Clemson University.
Clemson had great success on the gridiron during Scott's tenure as an assistant coach and associate head coach. The Tigers recorded seven of the top-nine yards-per-play seasons in school history, six of the top-eight seasons in total offense, each of the top-five touchdown teams, and each of the top-nine passing yardage teams during his 12-year career.
From 2001-03, Scott served as offensive coordinator, and in that time, Clemson had two of the top-four total offense figures in school history. The 2003 offense set a passing yardage record (3,687) that still stands today. That top-25 team that beat #3 Florida State and #6 Tennessee at the end of the 2003 season averaged 432.0 yards per game, the fifth-best mark in school history.
Clemson was bowl eligible all 12 years Scott was on staff and the Tigers played in 11 bowl games. The Tigers had five top-25 seasons, including 2009 when Clemson won the ACC Atlantic Division. He coached 15 First or Second-Team All-ACC players, including five who earned All-America honors.
Scott served under Bobby Bowden at Florida State from 1983-93. He was the program's offensive coordinator from 1990-93. In 1993, Florida State won its first national title and Seminole quarterback Charlie Ward became the school's first Heisman Trophy winner. Scott later served as head coach at South Carolina from 1994-98.
He also gained recognition as an outstanding recruiter during his career. Florida State had the #1 class in the nation on multiple occasions during his time as the recruiting coordinator, and he was named one of the top-25 recruiters in the nation by two recruiting services in 2010 when he signed two five-star recruits from the state of Florida.
Scott is a 1979 graduate of South Florida and earned a master's degree from Florida State in 1984. He was born on September 30, 1954 in Arcadia, FL and is married to Daryle. The couple has two sons (Jeff, John). Jeff is an assistant coach on the football staff and John is a doctor in Boston, MA.
