Clemson’s Dabo Swinney expects mistakes

Here is an update on former Alabama football player Dabo Swinney.

A couple of parts of the above story from the AP caught my eye:
Swinney was a walk-on receiver at Alabama, starting in 1988, and played for coach Gene Stallings’ national champions four years later.

He was hired by Stallings and stayed at Alabama through 2000. After a few years off selling commercial real estate, Swinney got a call from Clemson coach Tommy Bowden after the 2002 season about the team’s receivers job and thought the time was right to jump back into the game.

“I cut my teeth at two pretty good programs with passionate fan bases and high expectations, so I don’t know anything different,” Swinney says with pride.
