It’s hard to argue against Clemson coaches getting paid a ton of money. They have won two of the last four national titles, and appeared in the national title game this past season against LSU.

Dabo Swinney and the Tigers have something incredibly special going on right now. When you find their level of success in the sport, you do whatever you can to keep it.

If that means writing fat checks, then you do it.

As long as Dabo Swinney can keep his guys together, then Clemson is going to be just fine. They’ve been balling under his leadership.

It should be fun to see what they do down the road!
