Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney coached his wide receiver position to a level of consistency that had not been seen previously at Clemson. See his drills here!



Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney coached his wide receiver position to a level of consistency that had not been seen previously at Clemson. Before becoming a head coach, he had a wideout finish first or second in the ACC in catches in five of his six years as an assistant. In his first year, he had three of the top-10 receivers in the ACC, a first in Tiger history. He has coached a First or Second-Team All-ACC wideout (Derrick Hamilton, Airese Currie, Chansi Stuckey, Aaron Kelly, Jacoby Ford, and Watkins) in eight of his nine seasons at Clemson, also an unprecedented feat at Clemson. Below is a look at Coach Swinney's WR drills.
