COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Clemson coach Dabo Swinney received a new, eight-year contract and a raise that increased his total pay for next season to $3.15 million.
The agreement had been in the works since the end of the season. The school announced the reworked contract that ties Swinney to the Tigers through 2021. Swinney's previous deal paid him a total of $2.55 million and was good through 2017.
Clemson had its second straight 11-2 season, finishing up with a 40-35 victory over Ohio State in the Orange Bowl. It was Clemson's third consecutive season with double-digit victories.
Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich said Swinney was one of the top coaches in the Atlantic Coast Conference and the country. He was glad to lock him up with the Tigers for the long term.
