Swinney is ranked #38 out of 128 by Athlon Sports

Athlon Sports has ranked all 128 College Football Head Coaches for 2015 and has Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney ranked #38 overall.

"Swinney has helped Clemson football reach its potential with four consecutive seasons of at least 10 victories," Athlon Sports said. "The Tigers have not lost more than two games in ACC play during that span and finished No. 8 in the final Associated Press poll in 2013. Swinney is also regarded for his work on the recruiting trail, as Clemson has averaged a 13.2 finish – including two top-10 classes – among all 128 teams over the last five seasons. It’s no secret the Tigers invested heavily in their coordinators – Chad Morris (now at SMU) and defensive play-caller Brent Venables – to allow Swinney to focus on being the program CEO. What type of impact will Morris leaving have on the offense? That’s the big question facing Clemson in 2015 and beyond."

Swinney is currently 61-26 (.701) in seven seasons (six full seasons) at Clemson with a 39-14 record (.736) in ACC regular-season games.
