(AP) CLEMSON, S.C. - Former Vanderbilt coach Robbie Caldwell knew without something miraculous happening, his time with the Commodores wouldn't last past one season.
Caldwell, who has been named Clemson's offensive line coach, said Thursday he enjoyed his time at Vanderbilt. He felt he would be given more than one fall to turn around the program, but that didn't happen.
Caldwell resigned a few hours before the Commodores' final game of the season. He said it quickly became evident that with Vanderbilt's struggles, he wouldn't have the chance to continue. The Commodores were 0-8 in the Southeastern Conference.
Caldwell worked for former Vanderbilt head coach Bobby Johnson from 2002 until last July, when Johnson abruptly retired.
