Twenty-five years after deciding it was time to take his football career to the next level, former Redskins running back Terry Allen is back in the classroom to finish a management degree he began in the 1980's.

"School is a whole lot different than it was in my day," Allen admitted, via ClemsonTigers.com.

Allen promised his mother he would finish school, and is enrolled in 15 credits this semester.

"Nobody in class knows who I am," he said. "I haven't been asked for any autographs yet."

Allen is working as a student coach under co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliot.

Clemson has won all three of their games, most recently defeating Louisville 20-17 last Thursday.

Allen spent four seasons with the Redskins from 1995-98, racking up 4,086 yards and 37 touchdowns along with 100 receptions for 726 yards and two touchdowns.

His best season came in 1996 – the last season at RFK Stadium – when he rushed for 1,353 yards and 21 touchdowns en route to a Pro Bowl selection.
