Carolina Panthers eyeing WCHS-grad Clemmons as OL coach

Feb. 3—Even as new Titans coach Brian Callahan clears out much of former coach Mike Vrabel's staff and brings in his own assistants, other coaches from one end of the NFL are moving or interviewing to change addresses and move up the coaching ladder.

One of those is Mt. Juliet native Cameron Clemmons, who the Carolina Panthers want to interview for their offensive line coaching position and have asked his current employer, the Las Vegas Raiders, permission to do so, according to numerous media outlets.

As first reported by NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the 2010 Wilson Central graduate may be at the top of list to coach the O-line under new head coach Dave Canales.

Clemmons has been with the Raiders four seasons, the last three as assistant OL coach. Las Vegas also has an opening for OL coach after Carmen Bricillo moved to the same position with the New York Giants. He has worked under three head coaches with the Silver & Black. His line, described as a "ragtag group" by Raiderswire, paved the way for Josh Jacobs to win the 2022 rushing title.

Clemmons was named to the Hall of Fame last year at Wilson Central, where he was an all-state lineman as a senior in 2009. He was a four-year starter at Western Kentucky before signing a free-agent contract with the San Diego Chargers. He played briefly with the Ottawa Redblacks before embarking on a coaching career starting as an intern at Eastern Kentucky before a three-year run at Tennessee.

While with the Vols, Clemmons participated in the Bill Walsh Minority Fellowship with the New England Patriots in '17.
