This past season, the Clemson Tigers destroyed the Alabama Crimson Tide in the NCAA Football National Championship game. It was the team’s second championship in just three seasons and cemented Dabo Swinney as one of the best coaches and recruiters in college football. Swinney has been the head coach for 11 seasons and he’ll get to be with the team for even longer as he signed a 10-year, $93 million contract with the Tigers, according to ESPN.
Swinney will make $8.25 million in the first season and in his last two years, he will receive $10 million. The Tigers head coach is excited to commit himself to the team long term.
“I am grateful and humbled by the incredible commitment Clemson has made to me, my family and our football program,” Swinney said in a statement. “For more than a decade, we have given our all to provide this world-class university and our incredible fans the championship football program they deserve – to live up to Best is the Standard. With this contract, we make a collective statement that we intend to continue pursuing championships and developing total student-athletes for years to come.”
Heading into next season, the Tigers are favorites to repeat as champions.
