Tony Elliott named head coach at Virginia

December 10, 2021

It’s now official, Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott has been named the new head coach at Virginia.

The Tigers run of 10 straight 10 win seasons began with Elliott being named a full-time assistant coach. Clemson is 121-18 since he arrived on campus in 2011.

As offensive coordinator, Elliott guided the Tigers to two national titles and six College Football Playoff appearances. During his time as OC, Clemson had a stellar 89-10 record dating back to a 40-6 win over Oklahoma in the Russell Athletic Bowl in 2014.

Elliott’s 2018 and 2019 offenses were responsible for two of the 22 650-point seasons in major college football history. Clemson was the first school with back-to-back 650-point seasons since Yale in 1888-89, predating the start of official NCAA recordkeeping in 1937.

Elliott was also a co-captain of Clemson’s 2003 team that had a 9-4 record and a No. 22 final ranking by AP and USA Today. He had 23 receptions for 286 yards and a touchdown that season. He was also a recipient of a ACC’s Weaver-James-Corrigan Postgraduate Scholarship.

Elliott was the recipient of the 2017 Frank Broyles Award as the nation’s top assistant coach.
