Position: Head Coach

Athlon Sports has compiled their rankings for the top ACC head coaches for 2014 and had Clemson's head coach Dabo SwinneyDabo Swinney

ranked #6 overall in the ACC.

Is the ranking a little low or right for someone that just won a BCS Orange Bowl?

FSU's Jimbo Fisher was ranked as the top ACC head coach while Virginia's Mike London brought up the rear at #14.

Swinney has helped Clemson shake the underachieving label recently, recording a school-record 32 victories over the last three years. The Tigers are 14-2 in the last two seasons of ACC play and have two BCS bowl appearances in three years. Clemson finished No. 8 in the final Associated Press poll in 2013, which is the best final ranking for the program since Danny FordDanny Ford

guided the Tigers to a No. 8 ranking in 1982. Swinney is at his best in the program CEO role. Coordinators Chad MorrisChad Morris

are two of the nation’s highest-paid assistants, and Morris’ arrival in 2011 sparked instant improvement on offense.
