Swinney in Top 10 rankings of CFB Coaches

Athlon Sports released its latest article on Tuesday morning and had ranked all 128 FBS college football head coaches for 2016 and Clemson's Dabo Swinney was ranked #9 overall.

"Swinney continues to raise expectations at Clemson," Athlon Sports said. "The Tigers fell just short in their quest to win the national title last season and are loaded for another run in 2016. "Under Swinney’s watch, Clemson has shed its underachieving label. The Tigers have won at least 10 games in each of the last five seasons and claimed the 2011 and 2015 ACC Championships. Swinney has surrounded himself with a good staff of assistants, including one of the nation’s top defensive minds in Brent Venables. Clemson’s recruiting is also trending up. The Tigers average a 13.2 finish nationally over the last five seasons, which is second in the ACC to Florida State (4.6)."

The order of the rankings for the ACC coaches were Jimbo Fisher, Dabo Swinney, Bobby Petrino, David Cutcliffe, Mark Richt, Justin Fuente, Larry Fedora, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi, Bronco Mendenhall, Dino Babers, Steve Addazio, Dave Doeren, and Dave Clawson.

Clemson's rival head coach Will Muschamp from South Carolina was rated a dismal #79 overall.
