Yahoo Sports' Pat Forde released his College Football's Top 25 Most Intriguing Coaches of 2015 and Clemson's Dabo Swinney made the list at #7 overall.

"He’s racked up double-digit wins the last four seasons, but hasn’t beaten league kingpin Florida State in the last three," Forde said. "Expectations are for the Tigers to finally clear the Seminole blockade to the ACC title, and perhaps to make the College Football Playoff. If Swinney can navigate a tricky schedule and do that, it will eradicate any remaining doubts about his coaching ability."

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.

College Football head coaches that were ahead of Swinney on the list were Steve Sarkisian (#6 overall), Nick Saban (#5 overall), Bob Stoops (#4 overall), Gary Patterson (#3 overall), Urban Meyer (#2 overall), and Jim Harbaugh (#1 overall).
