Clemson coach, staff get raises

The Associated PressMarch 9, 2010 

The board of trustees at Clemson has recommended raises for football coach Dabo Swinney and his staff after the team reached its first ACC championship game.

Clemson athletic director Terry Don Phillips on Monday would not say how much Swinney or any of his assistants would make.

Swinney's original head coaching contract guaranteed an increase if the Tigers won the ACC's Atlantic Division, which they did for the first time last season. The accomplishment means Swinney should have about $1 million added to his original salary of $800,000.
