Clemson's deal with Dabo Swinney makes him second-highest paid college football coach

Sep 8, 2022

Clemson's Dabo Swinney on Thursday received massive new contract that makes him the second-highest paid coach in college football.

Swinney got a 10-year extension worth $11.5 million per year and it runs through the 2031 season. He is behind only Nick Saban of Alabama and ahead of Kirby Smart of Georgia. Swinney signed a 10-year, $93 million contract in 2019.

Swinney's new deal was approved by the Clemson Board of Trustees.

Swinney has led Clemson to 10-win seasons for the past 11 years. During the past seven, the Tigers won two national championships and six straight ACC titles. Clemson won its season-opener Monday against Georgia Tech, 41-10, and will have its first home game Saturday against Furman.
