Position: Head Coach

Athlon Sports has released its latest article rating the top coaching duos in the ACC and Clemson's Dabo Swinney and Brad Brownell are ranked #11 out of the 15 schools.

The ranking metric used was which were most likely to "keep each school’s fans happy and entertained from the start of football season through the end of basketball season."

Georgia Tech, N.C. State, Boston College and Wake Forest were the only schools lower in the rankings than Clemson.

Swinney has returned Clemson to national prominence. The Tigers have won 10 or more games in four consecutive seasons and finished four seasons in a row in the AP top 25, the first time either has happened since the late '80s/early '90s. The lingering question for 2015 is if he can do it without offensive coordinator Chad MorrisChad Morris

. Clemson is no basketball power, but Brownell hasn’t exactly elevated the Tigers, either. He has one NCAA appearance in five seasons. His win in the 2011 First Four is Clemson’s only NCAA win since 1997. (via athlonsports.com)
