Coaches can be friends too.

Clemson's Dabo Swinney and South Carolina's Shane Beamer have been good friends for many years during their coaching careers.

Swinney told the media this week a fun story that Beamer's son Hunter was once a Clemson fan when Shane was an assistant coach at Oklahoma.

Swinney even gifted the youngster some Clemson gear after he asked the Clemson coach for some.

During Saturday's pregame, Swinney was able to see Hunter, and they shared a big hug on the field.

It's great to see Swinney and the Beamers get along as school rivalries don't necessarily have to get nasty and personal all the time. It's OK to occasionally hug it out.
