Radakovich expressed interest in Clemson first


Clemson has called a Monday afternoon press conference and will announce that Georgia Tech athletic director Dan Radakovich has been chosen to replace retiring Terry Don Phillips as the new athletic director at Clemson.

Clemson senior associate athletic director Bill D'Andrea confirmed that Radakovich has been hired.

D'Andrea said he also interviewed for the position. "It's new leadership for Clemson," D'Andrea said.

He said that he felt that Radakovich's experience as the Yellow Jackets' athletic director from 2006 to the present played a role in the decision.

D'Andrea said he and Phillips would help in the transition, but was unclear on how the timetable would unfold. He said he planned on staying at Clemson following Radakovich's takeover.

Radakovich confirmed the move to the Atlanta Journal-Consitution this morning.

“I’m getting in a car to go up there right now,” Radakovich told the AJC, as Radakovich walked out of the Georgia Tech athletic administration offices earlier this morning.

Radakovich has been heavily involved in major facilities upgrade projects at Georgia Tech, including the new indoor football practice facility, tennis complex and the renovation of Alexander Memorial Coliseum.

Radakovich has been linked previously to AD openings at Miami, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

Clemson's press conference is scheduled for 2 p.m. in the McFadden Building team room.
