With the new deal in tact, Swinney will receive $4.8 million this upcoming season, and will then have annual increases that will max out at $5.65 million in 2021.
In eight seasons with the school, Swinney has a record of 75-27, including an impressive 47-14 mark in ACC play. Clemson is just one of two teams to win at least 10 games in each of the past five seasons.
Swinney joins Florida State's Jimbo Fisher and Miami's Mark Richt as the only three ACC coaches that will make at least $4 million in 2016. The coach was expected to make just $3.45 million in each of the next six seasons, a part of the eight-year deal he signed in 2014.
Since joining the Tigers in 2008, Swinney has led the school to two ACC titles and the National Title Game last January. He was initially hired on an interim basis, but the fit was too perfect to make permanent. That move has paid off big time, and the school is banking on that payoff to continue for years to come.
