On taking over as OC:

"Well, it's been really exciting. First of all, just to have this opportunity with this team, the culture that we've created, and the people that I've been able to learn from-- it's been incredible and I just truly appreciate the opportunity that Coach Swinney has given me. I've been here for seven full years now, and it's been an awesome ride. Really excited about getting into this role and then coach up these kids."

On what’s most exciting for him:

"I've been a coordinator before, so I've been a coordinator for six years, calling plays and that sort of thing. I'm excited about calling plays. I'm excited about having that responsibility of managing the coaches and then obviously, the offensive team too. So just those things are something that I've always loved doing. I got a great group of staff that I'm able to work with. Then obviously, our players are just so fun-- just awesome character on our team, so it makes it even more fun for me."

On if he had a sense that opportunity would eventually come:

"You know, I really did. I felt like working with Tony and Jeff initially was great. It was a great experience for me coming from being a coordinator and just seeing how other people do it. And then just absorbing what they did, and then obviously, being with Coach Swinney for seven years-- he's such a loyal guy. I mean, he's incredible and how not only hires but just how loyal he is to people. I felt like it was coming for sure, at some point. This place is really, really hard to leave just because of the things I said earlier about the culture and the people."

On interviewing for an NFL coordinator spot:

"Initially, that job title changed as the interview process went on, but yes, there was an opportunity in the NFL and I was just excited about learning and getting some experience, interviewing and also just seeing what the NFL was, like, really had no idea. I really didn't know and I didn't think about it being this early in my career, at least, that that was something I hadn't thought about. It was great to just meet people. I think that's what this business is about is to try to, you know, make yourself better any way you can, whether that's through your interview process."

On putting his stamp on the offense: 

"First and foremost, like we said, whenever Tony and Jeff took over seven years ago, it's not anybody's offenses, but the Clemson offense. We truly believe that and that's how we talk to the kids. There wasn't anybody else's name on it other than the whole entire staff, putting their heads together, and creating a philosophy through our head coach has been incredible with the process. Yes, there's gonna be some similarities for sure, but like all of us, whenever you have a role like offensive coordinator, you're going to have your twist to it. You're going to want to do things or emphasize things that might not have been emphasized in the past. So like I said earlier, I mean, Tony was a great guy to learn from, and so I'm gonna take a lot from what he did and I'll make it my own. Because I'm not Tony. I'm just gonna be Brandon Streeter and that's who I am. So, I'm excited about that opportunity."
