Today's guest on the Mushroom Society Series on the Coach and Coordinator Podcast is with retired NFL Coach Al Saunders. Coach Saunders began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at USC under John McKay from 1970–71 and served as receivers coach for the University of Missouri's Fiesta Bowl team in 1972. Saunders spent 1973 through 1975 as a play-caller and offensive backfield coach at Utah State. He then spent six seasons as assistant head coach/offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at the University of California. He guided the Golden Bears to set 32 NCAA, conference, and school records and finished each season ranked in the top ten in the nation in passing. His final collegiate stop was in 1982 as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach under Johnny Majors at the University of Tennessee where he built an explosive, record-setting offense. His first NFL head coaching position came with the San Diego Chargers as interim head coach in 1986 following the resignation of Don Coryell. He spent two full seasons as the Chargers' head coach after previously working as receivers coach in 1983-84 and assistant head coach in 1985-86 for what was one of the most prolific offenses in the history of modern football. In 1985, San Diego's "Air Coryell" led the NFL in passing and total offense for an unprecedented fifth time in six years. From 1989 until 1998, Saunders was with the Kansas City Chiefs. Saunders worked for 10 winning seasons under the highly respected head coach Marty Schottenheimer again as a part of a top-performing offense. Saunders joined the St. Louis Rams coaching staff under the legendary Dick Vermeil. Serving as associate head coach and receivers coach with the Rams (1999-2000), he helped create one of the most dynamic and explosive offenses that the NFL had ever seen, and eventually helped lead the Rams to a Super Bowl XXXIV victory. Leading the NFL in virtually every significant offensive category, "The Greatest Show on Turf" established numerous NFL records for scoring and offensive production. When Vermeil came out of retirement in 2001, Saunders reunited with his old mentor and former team, the Kansas City Chiefs, as the assistant head coach/offensive coordinator until Vermeil's final retirement in 2006. Under Saunders' direction as coordinator, the Chiefs offense was the most productive unit in the entire NFL during that 5-year span. 46 franchise records for offense production were established and no team scored more points (2,175), gained more yards (30,470), or scored more touchdowns (262) during that time. Coach Saunders was ranked as the #1 Offensive Coordinator in the past 25 years in the NFL by ESPN and in 2005, and was named USA Today's Offensive Coach of the Year. Coach Saunders finished out his career as an assistant with Redskins, Rams, Ravens, Raiders, Dolphins, and retired after his stint with the Cleveland Browns Shownotes: -Start with John McKay -Being organized -Don't tell - Teach -Treat everyone as a number one draft choice -The job of a coach is to make all players the best they can be -You can't teach experience -Create an environment people enjoy being in -Take the positive environment and enthusiasm to the field -How the best approach the game -Dealing with your coaches -Developing a top offense -Don't ask players to do what they can't do -Protecting the QB Link to all Mushroom Society Episodes and COOL Clinic Speakers: https://soundcloud.com/user-804678956/sets/the-c-o-o-l-clinic-speakers Learn from COOL Clinic Coaches: https://coachtube.com/coolclinic

Notre Dame vs. Ohio St College Football Pick Prediction 9/3/2022 by Tony T. Notre Dame vs. Ohio St—Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman is in his first season. He takes over for Brian Kelly who heads to LSU. Fighting Irish have seven starters back on offense and eight to the defense. Team finished 11-2 last year losing to Oklahoma St in the Fiesta Bowl. Quarterback position is turned over to Tyler Buchner. He saw limited work last year attempting 35 passes but running for over 300 yards.

Link below! (2:10) Ohio State's offensive preview. The Buckeyes are an elite unit despite losing two first round WR (Wilson, Olave) and two veteran OL (Petite-Frere, Munford) to the NFL draft. Led by Heisman favorite CJ Stroud, likely Biletnikoff finalist Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Doak Walker watch list member TreVeyon Henderson, the Buckeyes have the talent to lead the P5 in scoring. Marvin Harrison Jr, Julian Fleming and Emeka Egbuka will present matchup problems for the Irish secondary and LB. (9:50) Notre Dame offense discussion. The Irish have a recent history of being boat-raced offensively by elite offenses, most notably future national champions 2018 Clemson and 2020 Alabama. With this OSU team looking to be at the level of those programs, how can Notre Dame maximize their roster talent to overcome the wider talent deficit? The guys also discuss what first-year starter Tyler Buchner brings to the table. (17:15) Notre Dame defense preview. The Irish boast a formidable front 7, with a defensive line that is among the top in the country and an experienced and talented LB corps. The Irish have a number of ballhawk safeties, but the corner room leaves a lot to be desired after Cam Hart. Tariq Bracy has had a fantastic summer, and the Irish need the presumptive Nickel to shine. Clarence Lewis has hit moments, but inconsistency plagued his 2021 season, most notably in the Fiesta Bowl. With the scoring ability of this OSU defense, the Irish will need to generate pressure and likely turnovers if they want to limit the Buckeye scoring machine enough to give the offense a shot to win. (20:55) Game predictions. Cooper and Eric give their score predictions and discuss the outlook for what different outcomes likely mean for the Irish this year. This also leads into a wider discussion of talent disparity in College Football and how Maruc Freeman is moving the envelope in that regard for the Fighting Irish.

An illustrious coaching heritage is embedded in the foundation of Clemson football. At the dawn of the 20th century, the Tigers were led by future College Football Hall of Famer John Heisman. Hall of Famers Jess Neely, Frank Howard and Danny Ford followed in Heisman's winning tradition. Now entering his 15th season (and 14th full season) as Clemson's head coach, Dabo Swinney has already carved his name into that foundation, elevating himself amid a pantheon of Clemson greats by becoming the first coach in program history to lead Clemson to multiple national championships. Swinney's stratospheric start to his head coaching career placed his record not only among Clemson legends but also among the names of the winningest leaders in the more than 150 years of major college football. With his final win of the 2021 season, Swinney reached 150 career wins in his 186th game as head coach. In terms of games played, Swinney became the sixth-fastest coach in FBS history — and the fourth-fastest in the modern era — to earn 150 career wins, trailing Urban Meyer (176), Gil Dobie (180), Barry Switzer (180), Fielding Yost (184) and Joe Paterno (184). Entering 2022, only 16 coaches in FBS history including Swinney had accomplished the feat within 200 games, and 14 of the 16 had been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, with the lone exceptions being Swinney and Meyer, both of whom are not yet eligible. The 150th win came in Swinney's 13th full season and his 14th season overall including his seven-game interim stint in 2008. He moved into third place in FBS history for the most coaching wins in the first 15 seasons of a head coaching career, trailing only Meyer (165) and Bob Stoops (160). Swinney will have the opportunity to take aim at both in his 15th season as head coach in 2022. Though other seasons resulted in more hardware, analysts and observers opined that 2021 might have been Swinney's best coaching job, as the Tiger mentor guided his team through adversity and attrition to overcome a 2-2 start to finish 10-3 and extend Clemson's streak of consecutive 10-win seasons to 11. Clemson entered that October as one of 28 Power Five teams with two or more losses, yet concluded the season along as one of only two of those 28 programs to finish the season having reached 10 wins. Swinney's 2021 Tigers played seven one-possession games, one shy of the school record, and went 5-2 in those contests. The squad's success came in spite of tremendous turnover and attrition, as 48 different players earned at least one start, eight more than started in the pandemic-impacted 2020 season. Only 23 Clemson players played in all 13 games, and only four offensive or defensive players started all 13. Between injuries and transfers, Swinney held aloft the 2021 Cheez-It Bowl trophy following a game Clemson finished without the services of 30 scholarship players from its initial fall roster. A year earlier, Swinney's squad accomplished its “double-double mission” in 2020, going 10-2 in a condensed season to give Clemson 10 consecutive 10-win seasons. Clemson became only the third program in FBS history to accomplish the feat and became the first school to win 10 games in 10 straight seasons as a member of the ACC, as only the final nine of Florida State's record 14-straight 10-win seasons came during the Seminoles' tenure in the ACC. The pandemic-affected 2020 campaign was a historic one for the Tigers both as a team and individually, as quarterback Trevor Lawrence ascended to become the winningest quarterback in school history (34-2) and running back Travis Etienne added the ACC's all-time rushing crown (4,952 yards) to his arsenal of school and conference records. Etienne's versatility as a rusher and receiver earned him consensus All-American honors as an all-purpose selection, while Lawrence became the second Heisman Trophy finalist in program history, tying Deshaun Watson (second in 2016) for the highest finish in Heisman Trophy voting in school history. The prolific backfield duo under Swinney's tutelage helped guide Clemson to its sixth consecutive outright conference title with a 34-10 win against Notre Dame in the ACC Championship Game. That day, Clemson and Oklahoma's six-year streaks of outright conference titles made the two programs the first among current Power Five programs to win at least six straight outright titles since Oklahoma (12 from 1948-59) as part of the now-dissolved Big 8 Conference. The conference title helped Clemson secure its record-tying sixth College Football Playoff berth, becoming the first program ever to reach the postseason tournament in six consecutive seasons. Clemson is 6-4 all-time in College Football Playoff games, the second-most wins of any program and twice the number of the third-place programs (three, Georgia and Ohio State). Clemson finished the 2020 season as the nation's No. 3-ranked squad, the Tigers' sixth consecutive top-four finish in the AP poll. In doing so, Swinney joined Bobby Bowden (13), Pete Carroll (7) and Bud Wilkinson (6) as the only coaches since the AP Poll's inception in 1936 to record six consecutive top-four finishes. In that stretch, Clemson appeared in the top five of 57 consecutive AP Polls, the second-longest streak in poll history. Clemson entered the third decade of the 21st century in 2020 after Swinney helped author one of the most prolific 10-year periods in the history of the sport. Clemson posted a 117-22 record under Swinney's leadership in the 2010s, and the program's 117 wins trailed only Penn (124 in the 1890s) and Alabama (124 in the 2010s) to tie for the third-most in a decade in major college football since 1890. Clemson's 117 wins in 2010s represented the first 100-win decade in Clemson history. Before a pandemic-shortened season in 2020, Clemson won at least 12 games in five straight seasons from 2015-19, tied for the longest such streak in the modern era and only two seasons shy of Penn's record seven-season streak from 1892-98. Clemson won 69 games in that five-year span, the most in a five-year stretch in the AP Poll era. In 2019, the Tigers earned their fifth consecutive College Football Playoff berth following their fifth-consecutive ACC title, becoming the first team in college football history to win five straight conference championship games since conference title games were created in 1992.  Clemson posted a 14-1 record that year, earning its fourth appearance in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in five years. Prior to the season finale, Clemson extended its school-record winning streak to 29 games, tied with Florida State (2012-14) for the longest streak in ACC history and for the 12th-longest in FBS history. Clemson dominated the vast majority of its 2019 opponents, including an eight-game streak of wins by 30 or more points to break the longest streak in the AP Poll era, surpassing the previous mark of seven games set by 2011 Houston and 1976 Michigan. At 150-36, Swinney (.806) enters the 2022 season as the winningest active coach by percentage in the FBS among coaches with at least 10 seasons of head coaching experience. With an initial hire date of Oct. 13, 2008, he is the senior member of the ACC's head coaching fraternity and enters 2022 as the ninth-longest-tenured head coach in the FBS.  Clemson's success on the gridiron has been matched by its prowess in the classroom, as prior to the NCAA suspending APR reporting during the COVID-19 pandemic, Clemson was one of only three programs to earn top-10 percent APR recognition from the NCAA in at least nine of the previous 10 years, joining Duke and Northwestern. Clemson was in the top 10 of APR scores and the final top 25 of the AP and USA Today polls from 2011-15, the only FBS program that could make that claim. In 2017, Clemson became the first school to reach the College Football Playoff and finish in the top five of APR scores in the same year.  Clemson also produced the 2018 William V. Campbell Trophy winner (known colloquially as the “Academic Heisman”) in Christian Wilkins and won the program's first AFCA Academic Achievement Award. Clemson repeated as AFCA Academic Achievement Award recipients in 2019, becoming the only school in the country to repeat and doing so while appearing in the national championship game in both seasons. Swinney and Clemson's 2018 season was one for which statistics and superlatives accumulated in historic fashion. The Tigers became the first major college football team in the modern era (and the first since Penn in 1897) to finish a season with a 15-0 record.  The list of “firsts” was long and distinguished. Clemson became the first program to win four consecutive Atlantic Division titles, and with a 42-10 win against Pittsburgh in the ACC Championship Game, it became the first program to win four straight ACC titles outright.  Clemson's 15 wins included a school-record 12 against teams who finished with winning records. Clemson won by an average margin of 31.1 points per game, the best in the nation and the second-largest in school history, trailing only a 35.3-point average margin in 1900. Among the seasons it passed was a 30.4-point average margin in 1901, a season in which Clemson won one of its five games by a score of 122-0. Clemson set school records in points (664) and total offense (7,718, also an ACC record). The defense held opponents to 13.1 points per game, leading the country in scoring defense for the first time in school history.  A critical point in the season came four games into the campaign. Following a 49-21 win at Georgia Tech in which true freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw for four touchdowns in reserve, Swinney and the coaching staff elected to name Lawrence the starter, supplanting senior Kelly Bryant, who had led the Tigers to a 16-2 career record as a starter.  With Lawrence leading Swinney's Tigers, Clemson took flight. After a dramatic come-from-behind 27-23 win against Syracuse in which Lawrence exited the game with an injury, Clemson rattled off 10 consecutive wins of 20 points or more to conclude the season, including blowout wins of No. 3 Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl and No. 1 Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship. Seven players earned first or second-team All-America honors, including a school-record three players who collected consensus honors. The 2018 Tigers produced a team-record 18 All-ACC picks and became the first team to produce the ACC Player of the Year, ACC Offensive Player of the Year, ACC Defensive Player of the Year, ACC Offensive Rookie of the Year and ACC Coach of the Year in a season since Florida State in 1997. Accolades also accumulated for Swinney, who earned his second career ACC Coach-of-the-Year honor and brought home the Woody Hayes Award as national coach of the year. Less than a week after winning the national title, he also won the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award, becoming the first three-time winner of the award. Including the 2018 Bryant and Hayes Awards, he has won national coach-of-the-year honors from at least one organization in five of the last nine years. The 2018 season was preceded by a 2017 campaign in which Clemson was on a mission to prove that it was built to last. Swinney guided the team to a 12-2 record, an ACC title and a College Football Playoff berth despite having only six scholarship seniors and losing players who accounted for 77 percent of the offense during the 2016 national championship season. While Clemson was ranked No. 5 in the preseason AP Poll, few expected the Tigers to be ranked No. 1 in both polls and the College Football Playoff ranking entering the bowl season. In fact, Clemson was not even the preseason choice to win the ACC Atlantic Division.  Despite a setback in the Sugar Bowl to the eventual national champion, Alabama, Clemson finished ranked No. 4 in both polls. He was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame following the season. Clemson's school-record six wins over top-25 teams in 2017, also a national best, included a school-record four on opponents' home fields and five away from home. The defense, including three defensive linemen, featured four players who were named All-American, helping Clemson rank in the top four in the nation in scoring defense (No. 2) and total defense (No. 4). Clemson led the ACC in the four major defensive categories (scoring, total, rushing, passing), a first in history. The 2016 Tigers lived up to their hype after compiling a 14-1 record and earning a spot in the College Football Playoff for the second-straight year. Along the way, Clemson knocked off five top-25 foes. Clemson defeated the top two teams in the national polls in consecutive games in the College Football Playoff at the end of the season. The Tigers blanked Ohio State, 31-0, in the Fiesta Bowl, the first shutout suffered by head coach Urban Meyer in his career and the first for Ohio State since 1993. The Tigers then earned a rematch with No. 1 Alabama, and for the first time in school history, took down the top-ranked team in a second epic battle with the storied Crimson Tide program. Quarterback Deshaun Watson's touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow with one second left on the clock gave Clemson a dramatic 35-31 victory in Tampa, Fla. Swinney received the Bear Bryant Award as national coach-of-the-year for the second consecutive season. Swinney coached Watson to two record-setting seasons in 2015 and 2016. The two-time Heisman Trophy finalist became the first player in FBS history to total 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season in 2015, and he followed by setting an ACC record with 41 passing touchdowns in 2016. Watson won both  the Davey O'Brien Award and Manning Award in back-to-back seasons. Swinney guided Clemson to the No. 1 national ranking in every College Football Playoff poll in 2015 and led the Tigers to their first national championship game appearance under the new format after his team defeated Oklahoma, 37-17, in the 2015 Orange Bowl. The Tigers led Alabama in the fourth quarter of the championship contest, but came up just short (45-40) in an epic game in Glendale, Ariz. Following the team's 14-1 record and No. 2 final ranking, he was the recipient of 10 national and two ACC Coach-of-the-Year honors.  In 2015, a then-Tiger-record 17 players were named to one of three All-ACC teams, including all five starting offensive linemen for the first time in school history. In 2016, 15 players were honored, including a school-record three first-team All-ACC offensive line selections. The 2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons were also noteworthy, with three top-15 final rankings.  With a 40-6 Russell Athletic Bowl victory over Oklahoma in 2014, Swinney became the first coach in history to win three bowl games in consecutive seasons over teams whose head coaches had previously won the national title. He upped that mark to five years in a row in 2016. Clemson capped off the 2013 season with a thrilling 40-35 victory over No. 6 Ohio State in the Orange Bowl. Clemson had an 11-2 record after finishing 7-1 in ACC regular-season games. It marked Clemson's first back-to-back 11-win seasons in school history. For the fourth time in his first five full seasons as head coach, Swinney was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual National Coach of the Year in 2013. The 2012 season (11-2) was a groundbreaking year for Swinney's Tigers when looking at the overall consistency of the program. The seven conference wins in the regular season were then a school record, while Clemson was co-champion of the ACC Atlantic Division. With Clemson's thrilling 25-24 win over No. 7 LSU in the 2012 Chick-fil-A Bowl, the Tigers finished the season ranked No. 9 in the USA Today poll. It was Clemson's first top-10 finish in one of the two major polls since 1990. Clemson also reached the 11-win mark for the first time since its 1981 national championship season.  Swinney's 2011 squad, which ended the season ranked No. 22 in the nation, captured Clemson's first ACC title since 1991 when it beat No. 3 Virginia Tech, 38-10, in the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte, N.C. It gave Clemson its first 10-win season since 1990. For his efforts, Swinney was named Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year in 2011 to become the first Tiger head coach to win a national coach-of-the-year award since Ford in 1981. In 2010, Swinney became just the second Tiger coach to lead Clemson to a bowl game in his first two full years as head coach, joining his predecessor, Tommy Bowden. The 2010 schedule was one of the most challenging in school history, as nine bowl teams were on the regular-season slate and two of the four non-conference opponents were ranked in the top 25. In 2009, Swinney's first full season as head coach at Clemson, he led the Tigers to their first title of the ACC Atlantic Division. The Tigers came just six points short of winning their first ACC title in 18 years. Swinney was named ACC Coach of the Year by Sporting News and was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year. In October 2008, Swinney was named Clemson's interim head coach, replacing Bowden, who had been his position coach as a player at Alabama and was Clemson's head coach since 1999. He led the Tigers to a 4-2 record during the rest of the 2008 regular season, including a win over South Carolina in the regular-season finale to earn a Gator Bowl bid against Nebraska. On Dec. 1, 2008, his interim tag was removed and he was named the program's head coach. At the time, there had been 28 interim head coaches at the FBS level since 1970, and those coaches had combined for a 26-86-2 record. Only one of those 28 interim coaches posted a winning record, and that was Swinney. When he was hired as head coach, he became just the second interim coach to be elevated to the head coach position at the same school during that time period. Swinney hit the ground running in his first week as interim head coach, as he prepared for a 5-1 Georgia Tech team. He had to reorganize his staff and regroup his team and the fanbase in just five days. While the Tigers lost by four points, he accomplished many goals in that first week through his outstanding leadership. One of the most impressive demonstrations of unity came during the team's “Tiger Walk,” which has since become a staple of Clemson's game day routine for both the team and fans. Swinney has demonstrated his dedication to the community through Dabo's All In Team Foundation. Since 2009, the Swinney family and Dabo's All In Team Foundation have given more than $7.8 million back to communities and programs in the state. In its inaugural year, the foundation made the first contribution to the cancer fund established for former Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich, and many schools followed its lead during the remainder of the season. In 2021, the foundation distributed roughly $1.2 million in financial support to their core focus areas, with $800,000 of that being distributed to more than 200 deserving organizations and non-profits through the foundation's grant program. In 2019, the foundation awarded a record $1,082,000 in grant funding to more than 165 and raised $400,000 for breast cancer research and prevention during the organization's annual Ladies Clinic. The foundation's efforts went virtual in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, as the organization's ALL IN Virtual Fundraising Event alone raised nearly $1 million for organizations and efforts in South Carolina. Swinney was named as the honorary coach for the 2019 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, an honor for which Watson, a former Good Works Team selection, returned to Clemson to surprise Swinney during a team meeting. In the spring of 2021, Swinney accepted the Uncommon Award from Pro Football Hall of Fame Coach Tony Dungy, who presents the honor annually to figures in football who “take the tough road, follow a higher calling and set a higher standard.” The 1993 Alabama graduate joined the Clemson staff prior to the 2003 season. In his first 19 years as an assistant or head coach, the Tigers finished in the top 25 of the polls 15 times and totaled 42 wins over top-25 teams. Swinney coached his wide receiver position to a level of consistency that had not been seen previously at Clemson. He had a wide receiver finish first or second in the ACC in catches in five of his six seasons as an assistant coach. In his first season, he had three of the top-10 receivers in the conference, a first in Tiger history. In his 19 seasons at Clemson, a Tiger wide receiver has earned All-ACC status in 17 of those campaigns, including a first- or second-team All-ACC selection (Derrick Hamilton, Airese Currie, Chansi Stuckey, Aaron Kelly, Jacoby Ford, Sammy Watkins, DeAndre Hopkins, Artavis Scott, Mike Williams, Tee Higgins, Amari Rodgers) in 16 of those 19 seasons. In 2021, three of his protégés (Williams, Higgins and Hunter Renfrow) recorded 1,000-yard seasons in the NFL, while another (Chansi Stuckey) served as wide receivers coach at Big 12 champion Baylor before accepting the wide receivers coach job at Notre Dame for 2022. The Alabama native has a reputation as one of the top recruiters in the nation. In 2006, he was listed as the No. 5 recruiter in the nation by Rivals. He signed 38 players in his five recruiting seasons as an assistant coach and was a major reason Clemson's 2008 recruiting class was rated No. 2 in the nation by ESPN when he signed 11 players. Clemson's 2020 class finished as a consensus Top 3 class, earning the top ranking from ESPN, a No. 2 rank by Rivals and a No. 3 ranking in the 247 Composite.  When Swinney accepted the interim head coaching position at Clemson on Oct. 13, 2008, he described his feelings as “bittersweet,” because he was taking over for Bowden, who had been his first position coach at Alabama in the 1989 season. He had also brought Swinney back to the coaching profession in 2003 and has had a profound effect on his life. Both had followed similar paths as players, as Bowden was a walk-on at West Virginia and Swinney was a walk-on at Alabama. Swinney received a commerce & business administration degree from Alabama in 1993 after lettering three times (1990-92). A walk-on who went on to earn a scholarship, Swinney was a wide receiver on Alabama's 1992 national championship team. He was also named Academic All-SEC along with being an SEC Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll member in 1990 and 1992. Along with his appearance in the 1993 Sugar Bowl, his Alabama teams played in the 1990 Sugar Bowl, 1991 Fiesta Bowl and 1991 Blockbuster Bowl. Both Sugar Bowl appearances came after winning the SEC title game. After his playing career, he was a graduate assistant at Alabama from 1993-95. He received a master's degree in business administration from Alabama in 1995. He became a full-time assistant coach at Alabama in February 1996 under head coach Gene Stallings and coached a total of five seasons there on a full-time basis. Swinney was assigned to coach the Crimson Tide's wide receivers and tight ends in 1996, a season that saw Alabama win the SEC West Division title. The following year, he solely coached the tight ends. In 1998, he coached Alabama's wide receivers, a position he held for three years. At the end of 1999, Swinney coached the Crimson Tide in the 2000 Orange Bowl after winning the SEC Championship Game. During his time at Alabama, Swinney was a part of six teams with double-digit wins, five top-10 finishes, one national title (1992), three SEC championships (1989,92,99) and five SEC West Division titles (1992,93,94,96,99) as a player and coach. Swinney married the former Kathleen Bassett in 1994. They have three sons, Will, Drew and Clay. Will  played for Clemson from 2017-21, appearing in 69 games and holding for 558 career kicking points while also scoring two touchdowns of his own. Drew and Clay are both members of the 2022 Tiger football team.
