Clemson football: Brent Venables named nation’s top assistant

Now that the 2016 college football regular season is in the books, the top players and coaches across the nation are being honored for their standout performances on the year.

On Tuesday, Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables became the latest man to add a piece of hardware to his trophy case after being named the recipient of the Broyles Award, presented annually to the nation’s top assistant.

Venables received the honor at a Tuesday luncheon at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Little Rock.

The Clemson defensive coordinator received the honor over Alabama’s Jeremy Pruitt, Colorado’s Jim Leavitt, Don Brown of Michigan and Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Matt Canada.

Congratulations to Venables on the honor.

Now, Venables and the entire Clemson football team needs to strap up and prepare for its national semifinal meeting with the Ohio State Buckeyes in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 31.
