Neff addresses Swinney's contract in today's market, Clemson commitment to basketball

CLEMSON – When head football coach Dabo Swinney signed his new contract back in April of 2019, it stood as the richest coaching contract in college football history. That contract, a 10-year deal that paid him $8.25 million in 2019 and increases incrementally up to $10 million later this decade, is now not even in the top-five. Will Clemson look to rectify that in the near future?

Swinney now sits sixth in salary, behind Lincoln Riley of USC, Brian Kelly of LSU, Nick Saban of Alabama, Mel Tucker of Michigan State, and David Shaw of Stanford.
