Dabo Swinney's new contract at Clemson will pay him $93 million over the next 10 years, the biggest coaching deal in college football history. His annual compensation will increase from $8.25 million to $10 million in the later years of the deal. The agreement includes standard buyouts if he leaves for another college head coach spot and a "buyout enhancement" if Swinney leaves specifically to become head coach at Alabama.

Henry, who signed in 2018.

A source tells me that Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence is among the players taking top-30 visits with the Bucs. They already selected another colossal defensive tackle in Vita Vea last year, so this is an interesting one.
