Position: Head Coach
Athlon Sports has ranked the different ACC coaching tandems and have Clemson's Swinney and Brownell listed at #8 overall.

The rankings are based on evaluation of coaches, examined past performances, and fit a particular coach is for a particular school.

Swinney’s homespun rah-rah personality and his offensive coordinator seem to have made the Clemson football coach underrated — as if motivation and assistant hires aren’t part of the job. Clemson under Swinney is one of eight programs to win 10 games in each of the last three seasons. Meanwhile, he’s led the Tigers to their first top-10 finish since 1990 and first ACC title since 1991. After two lackluster seasons, Brownell has Clemson basketball in contention for its second NCAA Tournament bid in his four-year tenure.
