Dabo Swinney shredded as Clemson loses to Pitt, falls to 4-3 on season
Dabo Swinney’s Clemson Tigers have been a College Football Playoff fixture over the last few seasons. Clemson doesn’t look to be contending for any kind of championship this season.
Swinney’s squad fell to 4-3 on Saturday, losing to Pitt 27-17. As you might expect, Swinney is getting shredded on Twitter. Swinney’s threat to quit coaching if players get paid has been a frequent callback with Clemson’s struggles during the NIL era of college football.
Here’s a small sample of what college football fans are saying about Swinney on Twitter:
Dabo Swinney said he would stop coaching if athletes got paid. He never specified he would quit his job. #justsaying

The jig is up on Dabo Swinney. No one can be that stupid and also maintain that level of success

@daboswinney you need to retired before they force you out. Every coaches talent runs out. They way they stay relevant is by moving on before the program crumbles. It’s your time just face it, you guys are bad! ##collegegameday #acc #NCAAF #CollegeFootball

It turns out, Dabo Swinney is a man of his word. He really did quit coaching when players could get paid.

This is all going to end with Dabo Swinney going on a long rant about how the NIL is ruining college football, isn’t it? Sigh.

Clemson next plays a Florida State squad that is now 3-4 after an 0-4 start. Swinney accused the Seminoles of ducking Clemson last season when the game was canceled due to FSU’s COVID situation.
