Great article about Dabo....

He was actually very successful in real estate in a very short time making over $200K in his early 30's. He had to take a huge pay cut to get back into coaching.

This article is from 2015, but even more relevant now.

Thanks for posting. Man that seems like a lifetime ago. I’ve always thought he’s an even better CEO than a coach and that’s a rare trait to be so good at both.

I love that comment post at the end... no way Clemson can hang with the big three in the playoffs. Wish I could ask them now 3 yrs later how’d that turn out!!!!

Go Tigers!

Agree, that's an excellent article. I remember reading it when it was first published but reading again is a reminder of all the serendipity involved in Dabo landing at Clemson.

What is a head sports ball coach if not a CEO , really ?
The responsibilities are practically the same with the exception of the coach being more hands on with his charges than most CEOs are , depending on company size of course .
A great CEO manages his company in the same way a great HC manages his football team . Results show the leadership , organizational skills , forethought and planning for upward movement ... and reward for finishing on top .
Dabo is never satisfied it appears , and that bodes well for Clemson football.
