Dabo Swinney Signs New 8-Year, $54 Million Contract With Clemson

On Friday morning, it was announced Dabo signed a new 8-year deal worth  an average of $6.75 million annually. The new deal puts him ahead of  Urban Meyer and just behind Nick Saban and Jim Harbaugh as the  highest-paid coaches in college football.

In his nine seasons with the Tigers, Swinney has taken the team from  mediocrity to a national power. After back-to-back trips to the national  title, and one victory, Clemson has proved it can compete at the  highest level with Dabo Swinney on the sideline.
