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 9-5 win over Maryland on May 6, 2013, Leggett moved into 11th place on the all-time wins list and recently recorded his 875th win at Clemson with a 12-1 win over Western Carolina on April 24, 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.
