Clemson Nation has been dumped by Oliver Purnell. It stings. It is, at best, an unpleasant reality. But I think the timing was perfect.
In short, OP is a program builder and not a championship winner. That was true before he came to Clemson. It was true after seven seasons at Clemson. He did all he could do at Clemson. I think that. I think he thinks that, too. So rather than keep him around pursuing a challenge he’s incapable of accomplishing, it’s for the best for both sides to move on.
It’s not pleasant, but sometimes relationships run their course and have to be terminated.
