Watch: Angry Dabo Swinney barks at referee on sideline

Watch: Angry Dabo Swinney barks at referee on sideline Dabo Swinney often comes across as a composed head coach, but he has his moments when he can become frustrated. 

William Christopher " Dabo " Swinney (born November 20, 1969) is an American college football coach. He is the head football coach at Clemson University.

Everyone knows Lane Kiffin is a Twitter troll who speaks without a filter, but how has he turned FAU around so fast? With Kiffin taking FAU to unprecedented heights as an FBS program , his name will be floated out there in what figures to be a dizzying head coaching carousel over the next month.

There’s a reason Twitter accounts like Freezing Cold Takes are so popular. Looking back on history can be an amusing way to pass the time.

Apparently, that’s what Lane Kiffin was doing Friday night, because he posted a screen shot of an old article ESPN wrote on Clemson hiring Dabo Swinney back in 2008. He also made his thoughts clear on the analysis, posting three face palm emojis.

Written by the esteemed Pat Forde, who is now with Yahoo Sports, the quick analysis of the hire was not positive: “Swinney, who was recruiting coordinator and wide receivers coach until Tommy Bowden was whacked in midseason. The grade: D-plus. Swinney was part and parcel of a failed season but somehow got a promotion out of the deal. Who knew that beating Duke and Virginia could lead to such ample rewards?”

Julio Jones on 'Bama blowout loss: Dabo Swinney was the better coach

Julio Jones on 'Bama blowout loss: Dabo Swinney was the better coach Julio Jones is a Nick Saban disciple. He’s Alabama Crimson Tide through and through, so his thoughts on the title game are not insignificant. Neither is the stark truth he laid out. Speaking with TMZ Sports, Jones said, “Dabo (Swinney) was just the better coach, and they were the better team.” That’s a heaping serving of hard truth there. But in no way is Jones wrong here. Swinney and his staff 100 percent out-coached Saban and Co. In fact, it wasn’t even close. The big play that stands out to everyone is the pathetic fake field goal that Clemson swallowed up.

FAU head coach Lane Kiffin , as you may know, is the World’s Greatest Twitter Troll . In his latest act of trolling , he reweeted someone pointing out two contradicting statements from Alabama head coach “All that stuff that you write about how good we are and all that stuff they get on ESPN is like poison.

Lane Kiffin , Dabo Swinney , James Franklin and other coaches share the good, the bad and the just plain weird from their countless autograph requests. About a year ago, a woman who was diabetic emailed Swinney 's senior administrative assistant, Beth Douglas, to see if " Dabo could meet Dabo ."

In hindsight, that’s just hilarious. But it happens to the best of us in this industry.

Obviously Swinney has gone on to turn Clemson into one of the nation’s premier college football programs. On Monday, his Tigers took the mighty Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide to school, winning their second national championship in the past three years.

Now, it seems all Swinney needs to do to stay on top is avoid the inevitable rat poison that’s going to be fed to his players through the evil media. Right, Lane?
