Furman Now Appears To Pick Hendrix


The often reliable website footballscoop.com reported Friday night that former Furman player and assistant coach Clay Hendrix is the choice to be the Paladins next head coach.

That report was followed by credible social media posts Saturday indicating Hendrix had accepted the job.

There’s been no confirmation from the school, although with the buzz about Hendrix, it’s likely something official could happen as early as Monday.

The Hendrix news came at the end of a day when another former Paladin, N.C. State assistant Des Kitchings, had a change of heart after initially accepting the job Friday night, according to Sports Illustrated, which was first to report his acceptance of the job.

Hendrix, a Commerce, GA native and husband of a Furman alumn and Taylors native, has been on the Air Force staff since 2007 and is the offensive line coach and associate head coach.

7 Sports reported Wednesday that Kitchings was among three finalist for the job along with Hendrix, and Charleston Southern head coach Jamie Chadwell.
