COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -Clemson coach Dabo Swinney will earn at least $800,000 a year as the football coach.
Swinney officially took over full time after last season. However, the athletic department did not release the contract figures until Thursday.
Swinney has a five-year deal that pays him a base salary of $250,000 and guarantees outside income of $550,000.
Swinney's compensation is about four times what he made last season when he started as receivers coach before being hired as interim coach after Tommy Bowden left in midseason.
Should Swinney remain with the Tigers through the end of his contract, he'd receive a payment of $750,000.
