COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -A Clemson University official close to the school's football program says interim coach Dabo Swinney will become the Tigers' permanent coach.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity Monday morning because an official announcement has yet to be made.
Athletic director Terry Don Phillips was expected to introduce Swinney as head coach later Monday.
Swinney took over as interim coach Oct. 13 when Tommy Bowden resigned.
The Tigers won four of their final five games under Swinney to become bowl eligible. The clincher came Saturday when Clemson defeated rival South Carolina 31-14.
