WATCH: Swinney discusses ND win, Gene Stallings

by - Assoc. Editor -

Video Description: Former Tide football player and current Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney joined Ryan Fowler on "The Game" to talk about his team's big win over Notre Dame.

“At Clemson, that’s a tradition here,” Swinney told host Ryan Fowler on Wednesday. “Everybody comes on the field and we have to all gather at the paw and sing the alma mater. It’s just an amazing thing. Then you have an emotional, down to the last play, type of game like that and it’s pandemonium. But it’s fun. I have fun and I love what I do.”

Swinney talked about his mentor and former college coach Gene Stallings and how he has impacted his life and coaching career.

“He gave me a chance to play as a sophomore. He gave me a scholarship. He hired me as a graduate assistant. He hired me as a full-time coach, coaching the receivers and the tight ends, when I was 26-years-old. He’s given me some great advice along the way. He’s just always been there for me,” Swinney said.
