Former Alabama quarterback Andrew Zow is leaving Sylacauga High School (Alabama) for Clemson University, according to multiple reports.

Sylacauga City Schools announced the news Monday afternoon after Zow announced his intentions to join Dabo Swinney’s coaching staff. He accepted a position on Clemson’s player development staff.

Clemson should formally announce the news soon.

Zow played for Alabama from 1998 to 2001 under head coaches Mike DuBose (1998-2000) and Dennis Franchoine (2001). He led Alabama to the 1999 SEC Championship and finished his career as the all-time passing yards leader — he’s now 4th.

Anytime high school coaches get the opportunity to coach in college, especially at premier programs like Clemson, it’s very tough to turn down. Zow will gain valuable experience under Swinney’s leadership and in the player development aspect of the program.
