Terry Bowden's coaching career is going... somewhere.
The former Auburn and Akron head coach is putting himself at the bottom of the totem pole yet again, joining Clemson's staff as an unpaid intern.

He did post-grad work at Oxford, but got his first head-coaching job at 26. A unique educational path among coaches.
To be fair, this isn't all that much different than when Ohio State employed former Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips as a quality control assistant.
It's just another example of the hilarious creativity the top programs use to expand their brain trust as well as the lengths seemingly accomplished coaches will go to for a career boost with a top program.
And hey, as the movie poster for the 2015 film staring Robert Deniro and Anne Hathaway clearly states, "experience never gets old."
