Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney walks into Mercedes-Benz Stadium before the Tigers took on Georgia Tech in their 2022 season opener. 

Dabo Swinney is here to stay at Clemson for years to come. 
Clemson’s Board of Trustees Compensation Committee approved a contract extension for the Clemson football head coach on Thursday that keeps Swinney with the program through 2031. 
With the new deal, Swinney will make $10.5 million through the 2022 calendar year. His salary will then incrementally increase until it reaches $12.5 million for the final two years of his contract. 
The total value of his contract is now $115 million. 
“It is hard for me to believe I am in my 14th full season as your head coach, and I remain eternally grateful and honored for the opportunity to continue coaching and developing young people of excellence at Clemson,” Swinney said in a press release. “This agreement is representative of what has been collectively built here and the success we’ve had both academically and athletically. It is a reflection of the ALL IN commitment of so many people, including our players, our staff, our fans, our administration and our University leadership.”
Swinney last agreed to a 10-year, $93 million contract extension after the Tigers’ 2019 national championship, which made him the highest-paid college football head coach at the time and kept him at Clemson through 2028.
With the new extension, Swinney jumps up to the second-highest paid coach behind Alabama’s Nick Saban. 
“While I am certainly proud of our accomplishments on the field, the most rewarding part remains the relationships forged within this program and the ability to positively impact those around us,” Swinney said.
