Links at Lunch 1/12/2012: Kevin Steele Out at Clemson; Jeff Casteel is Arizona-Bound

Questions about Kevin Steele’s performance as Clemson defensive coordinator certainly arose following the Tigers’ 70-33 Orange Bowl loss. The answer was given today, as Steele put out a release stating he was leaving CU per CBSSports.com. Thus far there is nothing to suggest Steele was forced out despite the Tigers’ overall underwhelming defensive showing this season. In its four losses, CU surrendered 31, 34, 37 and the aforementioned 70 points.

The possibilities to take over will begin cropping over the coming days, and Shakin’ The Southland gets the ball rolling on suggestions.

Clemson’s is the second high profile DC gig to open in as many days. Coincidentally, the Tigers’ Orange Bowl foe West Virginia said goodbye to long-time coordinator Jeff Casteel on Wednesday. Casteel brings high expectations to Arizona, per ZonaZealots.com, and leaves behind a lasting legacy at West Virginia per HailWV.com.
