Sammy Watkins Uses Dabo's Style For What the Bills Need..

If you don't think Dabo makes a life long impact on the players that he mentors to look what Sammy Watkins said:

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000765887/article/sammy-watkins-pushes-for-a-bills-culture-change

".....Watkins went so far as to point to his college coach, Dabo Swinney, who helped turned Clemson into a national power, saying: "Coach Dabo was strict and that's why I think he changed the culture. He changed the players and we started winning. We started to expect to win. Every game I came into I never thought I was going to lose it. That's what we've got to do here."


This is coming for arguably the best player on our roster that Dabo suspended for a few games..

Good for Sammy for showing leadership for the team

It's interesting that he called Dabo strict. Most people (outside the program) would look at Dabo when he is at his press conferences and think he is just "loosy goosy" and is an "aw shucks" type of guy as opposed to a disciplinary who holds his players accountable.


We don't see the "Coach Dabo" behind the scenes

The Sports Media has him portrayed as you described..but he definitely has a formula that is the right mix for Clemson

That is definitely some love and respect to Coach Dabo. I love and respect Sammy for recognizing it.

Dabo is authentic, systematic and a great communicator.

This creates a team culture where the rationale is clearly understood by the players. Understanding why helps create the buy-in. Expectations, rules and goals are clearly set. When needed, discipline is employed in a consistent fashion. The discipline is not arbitrary or based on emotion. Finally, the discipline includes a path for improvement- a combination of additional requirements and an affirmation to original expectations and rules.

What is remarkable is the entire Clemson football organization from Dabo to the towel guys appears to be aligned so that messaging is consistent.
