Leggett Moving Up The All-Time Wins Lists 

As TCI has followed over the past two seasons, Clemson Head Coach Jack Leggett has been moving up the All-Times Wins List by a Division I Head Coach. With a 10-5 win over Morehead State on March 19, 2013, Leggett moved into 12th place on the all-time wins list and recently recorded his 850th win at Clemson with a 5-3 win over Wright State on February 23, 2013. This season Leggett again should move up several spots on the list and TCI will continue to track his climb throughout the 2013 season.
