Robbie Caldwell is officially retiring as Clemson’s offensive line coach, Dabo Swinney announced Wednesday night after the team’s Cheez-It Bowl win over Iowa State. Caldwell will remain with the program and transition into an off-field role working with high school relations, sophomore transition and some scouting.

The move has been expected. Players rewarded Caldwell with a Gatorade bath after Wednesday’s win. Caldwell entered 2021 with 43 years of experience in college coaching, and he has been with Clemson since the 2011 season. He served as Vanderbilt’s head coach in 2010 after eight years as offensive line coach for the Commodores.


“He and I talked about this last year,” Swinney said. “He really wanted to go one more year. I’m so thankful that he did because there ain’t many people that could’ve handled what we had to handle on that offensive line this year. It took a dang salty, savvy veteran like Robbie Cadlwell to be able to hold it together the way we did this year with such chaos upfront. I love him, he and his wife, Nora.”
