Florida State added to its coaching staff by naming Randy Clements its new offensive line coach, Seminoles coach Willie Taggart announced Thursday afternoon.

The move has been expected for weeks, even before FSU announced the dismissal of Greg Frey. Clements has worked with new offensive coordinator Kendal Briles for 10 years, including at Baylor from 2008-16 and last season at Houston.

“Randy Clements has a remarkable resume filled with quantifiable results coaching offensive linemen,” Taggart said in a statement. “He has proven to be a successful teacher and knows exactly how we want to operate in this offense. I am happy for our student-athletes to learn from him, and I’m enthusiastic about him joining our staff as we continue to build a championship culture at Florida State.”

Two of Clements’ players at Baylor, Cyril Richardson and Spencer Drango, swept the honor as Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year from 2012-15.

Clements will be responsible for rescuing an offensive line that was one of the worst in the nation last season.
