The Wolfpack coach says he doesn’t regret what happened.
Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney didn’t hold back earlier this week when addressing the “laptop controversy” against N.C. State.
Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren said the Tigers needed to be investigated for laptop use on the sideline during Saturday’s game. Clemson said the laptop was being used by a member of the team’s social media squad.
Swinney was bothered by the allegations, saying it was a ““challenge to our integrity.”
Doeren addressed it again during the ACC coaches’ teleconference call, saying he didn’t regret what happened.
“Look, I’m not a politically correct guy,” Doeren said. “I coach with a lot of passion. Our kids play with it. He does the same thing. At the end of the game, when you lose a game that has conference championship game implications on it, sometimes things are going to be said. I don’t think it’s a big deal. I’m going to move and I’m sure he will, too. He’s got a big game this week.”
Doeren added that he had heard Swinney’s comments and said that the two coaches are “good.”
Clemson is set to face FSU on Saturday, while N.C. State travels to Boston College.
