Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney talks with media before Spring practice in Clemson, S.C. Wednesday, March 2, 2022. Clemson Spring Football Practice March 2

Just about everyone added their two cents about the feud that took place last week between Jimbo Fisher and Nick Saban. One college football coach who refuses to get involved is Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney.

Swinney, who is an Alabama graduate, did not want to talk about Saban or Fisher.

“I don’t know, I’m just focused on the Tigers,” Swinney told tv station Live5News. “I ain’t getting involved in all that stuff. You know, it’s… I’ve had plenty of comments on NIL. I’m just focused on our guys and what we need to do and helping our guys be successful.”

Swinney has had plenty to say recently about the NIL and was one of the first coaches to come out against it.

“There’s no rules, no guidance, no nothing. It’s out of control. It’s not sustainable. It’s an absolute mess and a train wreck, and the kids are going to be the ones who suffer in the end,” Swinney said in April. “There are going to be a lot of kids that end up with no degrees and make decisions based on the wrong things. There are going to be a lot of decisions based on short-term stuff, and they’re going to sacrifice the long-term value of education, relationships, and connectivity. It will settle out eventually. But, no, it’s not what it was supposed to be.”
