Dabo Swinney has been at the helm of the Clemson football program since taking over following Tommy Bowden’s resignation in 2008.

And it’s certainly been a successful career, to say the least: a pair of national championships, 7 ACC championships, and 10 consecutive 10-win seasons. It’s been a bit of a struggle for the Tigers this year, though, as they currently sit at 4-3 and 3-2 in the conference.

It’s conceivable to see Swinney remaining as a head coach for about another 15 or 20 years. But how long does he see himself on a collegiate sideline? Of course, the standard is 70-year-old Nick Saban.

“I’ve got a long way to go to catch him, man. I’ve got a long way to go,” Swinney said, according to On3. “Of course, he might still be coaching at 90. I know I’m not going to 90, but I got a long way to go. I figure I got at least 20 more. We’ll see what happens.”

Speaking of Saban, Swinney was obviously joking when he said that the Alabama legend would coach until he was 90, but at this rate, it might not be a farfetched proposition.
