Last week, a video surfaced showcasing two Clemson football players boxing in the locker room.

You can watch that video here.

Today, Tigers' head coach Dabo Swinney addressed the video, explaining what happened.

From The State:

“We had a couple walk-ons in there with a little too much time on their hands. We all have raised kids. And so sometimes young people have a little too much time on their hands and they do stupid stuff. And you’ve got a pair of boxing gloves laying around, next thing you know, you’ve got a boxing match going on,” Swinney said.

“You’ve got a mat on the ground, sometimes boys especially will start wrestling and goofing off. It’s been going on forever and ever and ever… It’s just somebody got a video of it and put it out.”

Swinney said he's addressed this with his team, telling them the new locker room needs to be treated with more respect. He doesn't think they'll have any more issues.

Clemson is set to play Georgia Tech on Saturday.
