(Photo Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photo is from Press Conference following the 1972 season at Clemson. Clemson, after just completing a 4–7 season, put pressure on Hootie Ingram to resign as head coach of the football team. Ingram indeed resigned, paving the way for Red Parker. In his three years as head coach, Ingram’s overall record was 12–21. In today’s photo we see Hootie Ingram (left), Clemson President R.C. Edwards (center) and Hootie’s replacement, Red Parker (right) in a press conference announcing the coaching change.
