The Alabama Crimson Tide are eventually going to have to replace legendary coach Nick Saban when he retires.
One coach they’ll probably take a long, hard look at is Clemson’s Dabo Swinney, who was a receiver for the Crimson Tide back in the ’90s.
However, Swinney’s son, Clemson freshman WR Will Swinney, doesn’t anticipate his family leaving the Tigers anytime soon. He said on Saturday that his dad is building something special at Clemson (via AL.com):
“I wouldn’t say I necessarily see that happening,” Will Swinney said. “We love it at Clemson; he’s invested. Alabama already has so many championships and stuff. What else do we want to do? We’re building something really special here, and my dad has a bunch of good staff around him. He loves it here.”
Of course, Alabama could make Swinney an offer he can’t refuse, so it’s too early to say Swinney would never return to his alma mater.
However, if he manages to win another title with the Tigers (perhaps even this year), it would be tough for him to leave.
