Dabo Swinney invests in his program
Talk about putting your money where your mouth is.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has taken it upon himself -- basically out of his own pocket -- to give his assistants raises.
There is a clause in Swinney's contract stating that if he won the ACC, he would rise to a certain level from a salary standpoint among ACC coaches. When he won the 2011 title, that meant this year's contract would increase by $422,000. He is taking $265,000 of that to give to his coaches.
