After defeating Notre Dame last Saturday, Dabo Swinney passed Frank Howard as the all-time winningest head coach in Clemson football history, and although it took a few more games than he would’ve liked, Swinney received a surprise video from numerous Clemson legends.
Former players such as Trevor Lawrence, Grady Jarrett, James Skalski, Hunter Renfrow and K.J. Henry all congratulated Swinney in video clips, expressing their gratitude and appreciation for their former head coach. Some of Swinney’s former staff members also chimed in, including former offensive coordinator Tony Elliott and former defensive coordinator Brent Venables.
With last week’s win over the Irish, Swinney recorded his 166th win as the Tigers’ head coach since he took over the program in 2008.
With play-by-play announcer Don Munson by his side, here’s Swinney tearing up as he watches the video:
