College football fans reacted to a statement by ESPN’s Paul Finebaum regarding Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney being a good fit for Texas A&M. Texas A&M fired Jimbo Fisher on Sunday, and many names have linked to one of the better openings of this year’s football carousel.
Per a transcript of Finebaum’s radio show by USA Today, Finebaum said he thinks Swinney would be open to leaving Clemson this season because the two parties are “sick” of each other:
“Does he fit [at Texas A&M], Finebaum asked. “Absolutely. Dabo Swinney aligns very well, from a cultural standpoint, with Texas A&M. Would he leave Clemson? I think he would.
They’re kind of sick of him, and I think he’s sick of them. And before some ‘Clemsonite’ comes out of his basement and starts telling me how wrong I am, after a while, that happens. Happens to every coach, usually. And there are few exceptions.”
Swinney said he was open to coaching at another school earlier in the season.
College football fans react to Swinney/Texas A&M rumors
Fans responded to the idea Swinney, a two-time national champion with Clemson, would leave for College Station. Here are the best takes of fans commenting on Swinney and Texas A&M.
I would love to see Texas A&M hire Dabo Swinney if for no other reason than to watch Clemson fans blame Tyler from Spartanburg for Swinney’s departure.

Bozo the Clown Won 10 Games-Plus A Years in Total Disaster @theACC that Dabo able to play in for years with FSU, Va. Tech, and Miami down and Dabo had to win…

I really want that to happen. Clemson does not realize how great the have it with Dabo. He leaves and they take a step back for the next 5 years.

Dabo has more sense than to struggle in the SEC. Hes more likely to take the UNc job when Mac leaves..

Doesn’t Dabo not believe in NIL?
That seems very counter to the aTm model.

Could you imagine the toxicity of Texas A&M Head Coach Dabo Swinney?

Would be a fitting spot for one of the most overrated coaches in America
