Clemson coach Dabo Swinney spoke to fans after the school's parade celebrating the team's second national title in the last three years.

“This team, I tell them all the time that greatness is not your destiny," he said. "It’s a decision you have to make. This team made a decision to be great. It’s your right to be great. You’re not entitled to be great. It’s a decision you have to make and they were special from day one. It doesn’t take long to get around this group to know - the leadership, the focus, the commitment and the will to win was special."

Swinney said that this year's team is the best of all-time as they are the first 15-0 squad in the modern era.

"The 2018 team is the best ever," he said. "Drop the mic. The best ever. And they have set a standard for all future teams. It’s not that we won - it’s how we won."

Swinney also spoke at the Clemson-Virginia basketball game minutes later.
