Today is a special day for Swinney

Seven years ago today Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney became the interim head coach following Tommy Bowden’s resignation as head coach.

“This is always a day of reflection for me,” Swinney said. “It is always a special day for me.”

Swinney took over when the Tigers had a 3-3 record that year. Since then, he became the first interim coach to take over at midseason and take a program to a bowl game. He later became the permanent head coach at Clemson and has since guided the Tigers to a 66-26 record, an ACC Championship and four straight 10-win seasons. Currently his Tigers are ranked No. 5 in the country as they get set to host Boston College on Saturday at 7 p.m.

In this video Swinney reflects on the last seven years, how he has built his program and changed the cultural, and on his relationship with Steve Spurrier, who resigned on Monday night as South Carolina’s head coach.
