Coach Swinney to name Stoudt as Clemson QB

CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Cole Stoudt is slated to be named the new starting quarterback for the Clemson Tigers, coach Dabo Swinney told FOX Sports in a phone conversation Tuesday.

"It should be pretty obvious that he won the job," Swinney told FOX Sports. "He's a great leader who is highly respected by his teammates. He never once complained. He was always ready when we needed him. He's earned it and he will be named the starter."

The competition for the position was among Stoudt, Chad Kelly and freshman Deshaun Watson.

Kelly was dismissed from the team by Swinney on Monday for "conduct detrimental to the program."

Watson suffered a cracked collarbone during a scrimmage at the team's indoor practice facility on April 7. Swinney said Watson will not need surgery and he will be fine by the time summer workouts start in May.

Stoudt is expected to be named the starting quarterback at the team's next meeting on Monday, April 21.
