Dabo Swinney Comments On The 'Alabama Clause' In His New Contract
© Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports
Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney signed a 10-year, $93 million contract that takes him through the 2028 season. The contract also includes an "Alabama Clause" just in case he decides to jump ship to his alma mater Alabama. In an interview with ESPN, Dabo finally commented on that clause...

That’s something they presented when they presented the offer, and I didn’t have a problem with it. I think I’m one of the few coaches — they said, OK, here’s [your] market, and that was what they looked at doing the contract. I think I’m one of the few with a buyout.


I don’t pay any attention to it. I don’t let that stuff distract me. People always like to say one plus one equals two, and it’s a simple thing. But I don’t pay any attention. I was at Alabama 13 years. I love Alabama and always will. That won’t change. But I’m going on my 17th year at Clemson, my 11th as head coach. I love where I am, love what I do…

We're supposed to believe the Clemson admin approached him with the "Alabama clause"? Sure, whatever you say Dabo.
