Swinney said of the allegations in the last week was "absolutely false."

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney released a nearly 14-minute video that addressed a number of topics that came up over the last week.

Swinney addresses:

* Assistant coach Danny Pearman using the N-word around players three years ago and how Swinney and Pearman handled the situation.

* How he instructed players during past public rallies on-campus.

* His view of the Black Lives Matter movement and whether he mocked that group with a T-shirt he was photographed in over the weekend (It said "Football Matters").

* An alleged incident by a player who accused Swinney of using the N-word when saying players shouldn't have music blaring around the football facilities with that word in it. Swinney said that charge was "absolutely false."

* How the team has reacted to the last week and moving forward.
