Dabo is the best coach, in any sport, in Clemson history

I think he is best coach in the nation, in terms of the type of program he runs, the demand of academic performance, the clean program, the character development, the winning, etc....there is no coach I'd rather have my son play for. I do not share Dabo's die hard Christian beliefs either. That is irrelevant. He stands for something, and if you fall for anything, you stand for nothing. Some of you would rather have a win at all costs, ruthless coach....we would be Georgia off the field. Arrests, etc., all type of BS covered up, grad rates down in the 20% area. A lot of us remember that AT Clemson. There was a big weed element IN the program in the 1990's. Arrests, etc.. I knew kids who went on recruiting visits and their parents told me that no way their kid was going to Clemson. The grad rates up until Dabo were terrible. GPA's were comical. Better under Bowden, but before TB, they were a joke. Dabo is not perfect, but what he is is a man, a leader, who STANDS for something. When the Tigers go on another run, we will all cheer like hell. He is the best coach in America to me in terms of his total program, AND he has won it all. He will again, and I'll stand by him, and stand and applaud him, period.

Dabo hired the best coach in Clemson sports history.

Without BV, Clemson doesn’t go to any CFPs.

It’s obvious. When BV left, our program went downhill.

So because Dabo hired the best coaches, hes automatically the best coach?


Nov 1, 2023, 7:37 AM

I think we’re confused at what “coach” means.

It’s a coach’s job to hire those guys, but they don’t do everything for him. Dumb response.

I.M. Ibrahim is probably the best coach in any sport in Clemson history. He literally built the Clemson soccer program from scratch. Won 2 National Titles, 6 Final Four appearances, 11 ACC Tournament titles and 13 regular season titles. He had a Herman Award winner (award for soccer’s best player). And on top of all that he had a PhD in chemistry that he earned from Clemson.

I agree with you on coach Ibrahim.
Dabo is 2nd.

Wouldn't be surprised if Noonan gets a few more Natty's and tops him there. But Ibrahim made that possible and I was privileged to grow up in the 80's and see the ridiculously talented players he brought in. Many were South American which you don't see at US colleges much anymore. Best players in the world. Imad Baba, Andres Also, and on and on. Fun times just like now. Come out Sunday!

To top it off he opened the Tiger Sports Shop which is still going strong.

You make a good argument for Ibrahim but

Yours is based on achievement and not the difficulty of the task at hand. I was there when he won in 1987 . Pretty thrilling moment. But one could argue that the shear magnitude and enormity of a college football roster, facilities, appearances, expectations, venue, scrutiny makes it harder than soccer, in my opinion.

Agree. Ibrahim is far and away the greatest.***

Larry Penley is in that discussion too. With regard to quality of men - Dabo has done an incredible job.

Totally agree

Not even close

and what he has done for his players and the graduation rate can't be matched

as well as for C L E M S O N

Most people measure success of our FB program with wins, losses, and championships. Dabo measures success of our program with graduation rate, grade point average, the character of our players, and their development while they're at Clemson and beyond.

Yes, the wins/losses/championships are important to him also, but they're not the MOST important. As an alumni, I am VERY proud of the program he has built. And yes, the wins and championships are a nice bonus.
