Tuesday, october 14, 2008. (AP) -- Clemson's new interim head coach Dabo Swinney has announced new duties for some members of his offensive coaching staff.

Clemson's offense has sputtered this season, leading to much of the criticism that led former coach Tommy Bowden to step down Monday. About an hour after being named interim coach, Swinney fired offensive coordinator Rob Spence.

Swinney said in a news release Tuesday that he will take over the offensive coordinator duties and will call plays with Billy Napier, who had been the tight ends coach. Napier will now coach quarterbacks.

Graduate assistants Jeff Scott and Mike Dooley will be promoted to full-time positions. Scott will coach wide receivers and Dooley will coach tight ends. Scott is the son of Clemson offensive line coach Brad Scott.
