Clemson, SC (AP) - Clemson coach Dabo Swinney began Georgia
Tech week in 2008 as receivers coach and left charged with trying
to triage a bleeding program. Two years later with the Yellow
Jackets in town, Swinney's proud of the steps he's taken so far.
Clemson (3-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) faces Georgia Tech
(5-2, 3-1) at Death Valley on Saturday, site of Swinney's
head-coaching debut two seasons back. Swinney got the call to take
over when longtime coach Tommy Bowden walked away with Clemson
floundering at 3-3.
The Tigers couldn't overcome Georgia Tech that day, losing 21-17
yet Swinney says that began a journey to the top that's closing in
on its destination.
