Clemson Tigers Sign Dabo Swinney To 10-Year, $93 Million Contract

Clemson Tigers Sign Dabo Swinney To 10-Year, $93 Million Contract”

The deal calls for a $4 million buyout should Swinney leave in the first two years of the deal for another school - $6 million if that school is Alabama - according to ESPN. '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'.

Clemson has emerged as the most dominant program in college football over the past five years, a run punctuated by the program's evisceration of perennial championship contender Alabama in January (which capped the first 15-0 campaign of the modern era).

Swinney has a 116-30 record in 11 seasons at the school and Clemson has won each of the past four ACC titles.

Saban is under contract through 2025 under the terms of an eight-year, $74 million deal he signed last summer.

Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich, who also received a contract extension Friday through June 2024, said Swinney is worth every penny. "This new agreement is evidence of Clemson's steadfast commitment to Dabo and to our football program, and we are thrilled that he and his family will be a part of our community for years to come". The contract was unanimously approved by the Clemson Board of Trustees Compensation Committee.

In addition, Radakovich and Clemson also have agreed to a new longterm deal, the university announced Friday. "Our sustained continuity in vision, people and culture has been a key ingredient to our success, on and off the field". In terms of total money, it is the richest contract for a coach in college football history.

Nevertheless, Swinney's name continues to come up as the likely successor to Saban when the 67-year-old Alabama coach chooses to retire.

The deal is laden with incentives that could earn the coach an additional $8.5 million over the life of the contract: $150,000 for winning the ACC title game, $200,000 apiece for appearances in the national semifinals and championship game, $250,000 for winning the CFP championship and $50,000 for taking home coach of the year honors. But Clemson has made that potential exit a little less palatable financially, particularly through 2022 on a dollar-for-dollar basis, if it's even on Swinney or Alabama's radar right now.

Swinney and the Tigers brought home their second national title in three years after dominating Alabama in the championship game.
