Elliott, who has had to fend off interest from both the NFL and various college programs in need of a new head coach, might finally be enticed to leave Dabo Swinney’s factory of elite recruits at Clemson if he gets the chance to work with Wilson.
While the recruiting advantages give Elliott an inexhaustible supply of elite players, his offense is one of the main reasons the Tigers have been so dominant over the years. Trevor Lawrence is the toast of both the collegiate and professional football world, and it would be foolish to suggest that he could’ve got there without the help of Elliott.
Elliott’s offense is unique in that it blends getting the ball out of the quarterback’s hand on quick hitters, deep vertical shots down the field, and using the quarterback’s legs, all the while maintaining an elite running game.
Elliott would have to be wowed by an OC job to leave Clemson, but going to Seattle and lighting up the scoreboard with Wilson and Metcalf might be too good to pass up. If he sticks with the Seahawks and dominates for a few seasons, there is a very real chance he could get himself an NFL head coaching gig in the near future.
