Radakovich Settling In As A.D. At Clemson


By Sports Department

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — New Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich has spent the first two weeks on the job in meetings, getting an earful about what works and what doesn't before implementing his action plan.

Radakovich took over earlier this month for Terry Don Phillips, who retired this past summer after 10 years leading Tigers' athletics. Radakovich was serving as Georgia Tech's AD when he heard of Phillips' plans to step down and told him of his interest in the Clemson position.

Radakovich, 54, considers the Tigers' position a destination job rather than a stepping stone to something bigger. He was a young athletic administrator at rival South Carolina when he first became familiar with Clemson.

Now he is getting input from Clemson coaches, boosters, fans and athletes to learn more about the university.
