Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney was named the Home Depot Coach of the Year for 2015.
Swinney's Clemson Tigers are the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff after a 13-0 regular season and a win over North Carolina in the ACC Championship Game. The Tigers play the Oklahoma Sooners in the Orange Bowl. If Clemson wins, it will play the winner of the Michigan State vs. Alabama game for the national title.
Swinney is 74-26 in 7+ years as Clemson's coach. He took over for Terry Bowden halfway through the 2008 season.
