The Clemson Tigers signed head football coach Dabo Swinney to a new 10-year deal on Friday. He will be paid $93 million during the contract.

Swinney strikes a deal after attending the NFL Draft in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday night with his wife. He saw three of his players drafted in the first-round, including Clelin Ferrell (Oakland Raiders), Christian Lawrence (Miami Dolphins), and Dexter Lawrence (New York Giants) going in the Top 17 picks.

The 49-year-old Birmingham, Alabama native has been the Tigers head coach since the 2009 season. He served part of the 2008 season as the team’s interim head coach.

Since taking over, he has gone 116-30 as head coach. Two of the past three seasons, Swinney and his staff guided the team to the College Football Playoff National Championship.

Also, when the Tigers finished the season with a 15-0 record in 2018, they became just the fifth team in college football history to go 15-0. The last to do it was in 1897.

They tied the 1897 Penn Quakers team, who was the last to go 15-0, in a season and win the National Championship. In addition, the 1894 Yale Bulldogs also accomplished the same feat.

With their second National Championship in January, the Tigers are going to be here to stay as the new villains in college football. They took the reins from the Alabama Crimson Tide, who they defeated in both championships.

In fact, in January, the Tigers beat down the Crimson Tide, 44-16, at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Swinney has guided the team to eight straight 10-plus win seasons. In the past four seasons, the team has made the College Football Playoff each season.

During this stretch, he has guided the team to a 55-4 record. In 2017, the team lost two games in a season, which was the most in this time period.
