Yes, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney does indeed have a side job, and it probably isn’t what you’d expect it to be. Over the weekend, the Post and Courier wrote a story about Swinney’s other gig — coaching his son’s youth baseball team during the offseason.
“Whether you’re coaching college kids or 12-year-olds,” Swinney said via the Post and Courier, “it’s still competing and teaching and trying to get young people to grow from where they are and help them to improve. That’s the same deal.
“This is a good little group. We’ve got kids from Pickens, kids from Clemson, kids from Anderson, kids from the Central area. We’re a solid little team, and we’ve had some big wins and we’ve had some ugly losses. Just like any other group, some days are better than others. It’s just fun to come out and be a part of it.”
This is probably a nice change of pace for Swinney in the offseason. Happy Father’s Day, coach.
