Report: Dabo Swinney Gets New 8-Year Deal To Stay At Clemson

With some guaranteed dough.

Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney will reportedly be sticking around for quite some time at Clemson. According to Aaron Brenner of the Charleston Post & Courier, Swinney and the school have reached an agreement on an eight-year, $27.15 million dollar deal that is fully guaranteed if he's fired in the next three years. 

While it's an interesting way to structure a deal, Clemson is obviously high on Swinney after the progress the program has made over the past few seasons. Under Swinney's leadership, the Tigers have posted a 51-23 record in six years. They also won this past season's Orange Bowl over Ohio State and have won at least 10 games in each of the past three years. While it won't make Swinney one of the highest-paid coaches in college football, the guarantee provides great incentive for the two sides to stay committed to each other.
