Swinney ranked Top 3 coach nationally for 2017

CBSSports.com released its annual ranking of the top college football head coaches for 2017 and Clemson's Dabo Swinney was ranked No. 3 overall behind only Nick Saban and Urban Meyer.

"When we were putting our rankings together, we all knew who the top two would be," CBSSports.com said. "The question was who would claim No. 3, and nobody is surprised to see Dabo climb up and take this spot. He's fresh off his first national title, and he's now won at least 10 games in each of the last six seasons. Clemson is a powerhouse thanks to Swinney, and he absolutely deserves this spot."

The Top 10 coaches on the list where Nick Saban, Urban Meyer, Dabo Swinney, Jimbo Fisher, Jim Harbaugh, Bob Stoops, Chris Peterson, David Shaw, Bill Snyder, and Gary Patterson.

Other ACC head coaches that were ranked below Swinney and Fisher include Bobby Petrino (#13 overall), Mark Richt (#15 overall), David Cutcliffe (#17 overall), Brian Kelly (#22 overall), and Paul Johnson (#25 overall).
