Swinney challenges Lane Kiffin

Clemson head football coaches and the Kiffins are known to have butt heads in the past.

Following the Tigers’ 1983 win at NC State, then Clemson coach Danny Ford accused Wolfpack head coach Monte Kiffin of turning Clemson into NCAA investigators for possible recruiting violations. Their postgame handshake was anything but friendly or sportsmanlike.

Now, nearly 40 years later, Clemson’s Dabo Swinney and Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin, Monte’s son, were throwing out jabs on Twitter. However, this time the confrontation was friendly.

Yolett McPhee-McCuin, the women’s basketball coach at Ole Miss, released a tweet Monday of her Facetiming with Swinney.
