is taking part in the media blitz on Monday that is the ACC Coaches "Car Wash" at the ESPN headquarters.

Swinney was asked on the show ESPN's His & Hers about his first date with his future wife, Kathleen Swinney.

"I had ten bucks," Swinney said. "We went to eat. She ordered fried cheese. It was the first time I ever heard of fried cheese. We go see "Summer School" and I will never forget it. Mark Harmon I think was the actor. So we are watching this movie and it is like at 10:45 and we are a good 25 minutes from my wife's house and my sweet little wife, girlfriend at the time, she leans over and says and I mean it is like the best part of the movie. It didn't even start till 9:45 and she says 'I have to be home by 11:00'. I'm like "What?" There were no cops between Hoover and Pelham where I was going."

The ESPN host asked if he made it back in time to beat her parent's curfew. "We did not make it and I think she was grounded for the next weekend because we didn't get back by 11:00. That's so classic Kathleen Swinney."

Swinney was also asked during the show about his famous dance moves that have been circulating on the Internet for the last few weeks.

"I have three sons that don't necessarily appreciate my dance moves. They're at that stage now where they are losing cool points because their dad has a really poor whip and stanky leg."
