talked about his previous experiences with the American Civil Liberties Union with his previous Clemson football teams.

When I was the Head Coach at Clemson I was approached twice from the ACLU with the same concerns. The ACLU was concerned I was using buses paid for by the university to take my team to church once a year. So I said that was no problem. The next Sunday we loaded up in cars and went anyway. There was no way that I was going to hide my Christianity! So I made sure numerous voluntary resources and events were available to my team and strongly encouraged them to engage. What were the resources? We encouraged regularly attending a local church, weekly Bible studies, and organizations like the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. I made available faith based mentors, and motivational speakers who would speak around a Christian theme.

was on the show Fox and Friends last Friday morning to talk about Clemson and the FRFF.

In the FRFF's complaint, foundation staff attorney Patrick Elliott said “Christian worship seems interwoven into Clemson’s football program."


Bowden went on to twitter and said that "Shouldn't be an issue. He (Dabo SwinneyDabo Swinney

) has been transparent and everything is voluntary."
